For the second time, vibrant Antwerp will be transformed into a design paradise. During Antwerp Design Week – from June 2 to 7 – over 50 design and interior brands will roll out the red carpet for design professionals. Be inspired by the many new objects and products spread across five different districts throughout the city, meet both established and emerging design names, and embark on a once-in-a-lifetime professional city trip.


District Downtown: In the heart of Antwerp, you’ll find ‘The Club – Powered by Fedustria’: a central information point where you not only get a preview of the design to come but also enjoy a delicious cup of coffee before starting your design journey. ‘The Club’ is not only the centerpiece of the event but also the heart of the ‘Downtown District.’ This district will feature an extensive mix of design brands. Looking for the finest materials like natural stone or wood? You can undoubtedly find them at Barh, Cosentino, and Woodstoxx. For beautiful decoration items, brands like Vitra, HAY, and Melmath Agency will open their doors, while you can find stunning furniture design at Poltrona Frau, Ondarreta, Kewlox, and Carl Hansen. Outdoor design? Discover high-end ceramics from Domani. The material library ‘The Hub’ is also the place for endless inspiration.


District North: About 20 minutes’ drive from the city center is ‘District North.’ Here, you can visit Omar Antwerp, Mon Dada, and Gommaire for furniture design and decoration. Check out the lighting brand Authentage or find interior inspiration at XL Bloom, Gardeco Objects, and Silk-ka. For bathroom furnishings, visit Aquanova. Lounge on the sofas from Marie’s Corner or enjoy (outdoor) furniture from Vincent Sheppard.


District East: Continue your design city trip to the east and find yourself in ‘District East.’ About 30 minutes from the center, you will find the largest showrooms and studios of the event. Discover Belgian luxury outdoor brand Royal Botania or the nature-inspired furniture collection from Sempre. More decoration? You can also admire the unique glass objects, vases, and tableware from Henry Dean and Ju in this district.


District South: Head south of the city, to ‘District South,’ where various headquarters of Belgian design brands are located. Additionally, you can visit niche brands like Heatsail and Goodwill, or brands specializing in interior decoration and furniture, such as Serax, Pomax and Bazar Bizar.


District West: End your design exploration in ‘District West,’ in the more industrial part of the city. Immerse yourself in top-notch interior brands like Ethnicraft, Joli, and Heerenhuis, or discover the playful statement design from HKliving. For decoration, you can also visit ‘District West.’ Drink from Paveau water bottles or indulge in the ceramics from D&M. Stylish umbrellas can be found at Umbrosa, and design paint at Sherwin-Williams. Looking for the perfect textiles? Be sure to visit Roolf Living, Limited Edition, or FibreGuard.


Young Talent Hub: New this year are the two ‘Young Creative Hubs’ organized during Antwerp Design Week. In the ‘Winkelhaak,’ you’ll find new creations from design names like Axelle Vertommen, Caroline Voet, Bemelmans Design, Atelier Leda, and more. In ‘Twelve’ – a brand-new initiative from AIM architecture – work from eight Chinese designers including Urban Craft (Li Ximi, Atelier VF, Studio KAE, MEW Qian Jing) and other Belgian talents including Krum and Grint will be showcased.
