BRUT is a new collective of six emerging Belgian designers. The junction of their practices is a natural consequence of the apparent similarities in imagery, concepts and vision. The six represent a young generation of Belgian designers which values the significance of collaboration and collective involvement within the contemporary design landscape.
BRUT therefore embodies the commitment to realizing a dialogue between designers and their design language: a visual and conceptual encounter which both reflects the common qualities of the designers and emphasizes the personal idiosyncrasies of their practices. This dialogue is always materialized with a co-decided scenography - a shared setting which visualizes a collective narrative.
BRUT has a dedicated attention for the architectural, sculptural and emotional potential of (contemporary Belgian) design. On the one hand, this focus is a result of the personal sensibiliteies of the participating designers - the corresponding characters of their practices. On the other hand, it creates a common ground and motive; it realizes and defines an environment where the designers can show, strenghen and challenge each other.
BRUT makes its début during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, 2018.
