Life in plastics

Between the exposition area of Bruxelles and the Atomium you can find a special museum dedicated to the design of things. The Design Museum is a wide collection of everyday items made from plastics: chairs, tables, TVs and much more. Even radical approaches towards common items are presented here and contribute to the fun. Additionally, there is a gallery exhibiting items from Belgian designers and changing exhibitions.

It is not a large museum, but it is worth to explore while visiting the Heysel area. The museum fits well to these grounds: as much as the atomic age was seen positive when the Atomium was created, furniture and other items made from plastics (based on oil) were once futuristic – but now they’re seen mostly as something from the past.
