The Design Museum Brussels, established after the Atomium’s acquisition of a private collection, is a space dedicated to design and its history. Since 2015, the collection of the museum, The Plastic Design Collection, exhibits the landscape of plastic in the world of design starting from the 1950s up until today. Complemented by a program of temporary exhibitions, the Design Museum Brussels also highlights other aspects of design and its impact on society and our daily life.

Through exhibitions, guided tours, workshops and lectures, the Design Museum Brussels aims to ensure that design is intelligible to one and all.

The Design Museum Brussels and the Musée d’Ixelless/Museum van Elsene embark on a rhythmic and spontaneous two-step with the exhibition Crush, which brings together pieces from the Plastic Design Collection and works of art from the Musée d’Ixelles/Museum van Elsene. At the invitation of the Design Museum Brussels, the Musée d’Ixelles/Museum van Elsene is bringing out a selection of paintings, sculptures, photographs and other drawings from its reserves to create a special link with the Plastic Design Collection. Visual games or ideas, formal intuitions, bursts of collective memory, the crushes propose a series of spontaneous associations between two creative fields. This creative and visually unexpected dialogue underlines the singularity and variety of both collections, which are revealed in a new light, without any modesty. Through this audacious exhibition, the Musée d’Ixelles/Museum van Elsene and the Design Museum Brussels offer a relaxed look at creation that helps to break down the barriers between disciplines and audiences.
