Ventura Interieur breaks through the walls of the Xpo fairground and invades the city of Kortrijk, Belgium, from 20 till 28 of October 2012.

Based on their common value of ‘careful selections’, the Biennale Interieur and Organisation in Design will present a diverse mix of international design talent at several locations within the Biennale. These will be linked through a free and frequent shuttle service which will operate between the various destinations throughout the Biennale Interieur.

'We want to show the Interieur audience what is happening in contemporary design among individual designers, academies and institutions, and in the broader cultural sectors related to the design world. Ventura Interieur also offers participants a unique opportunity to submit their work to the critical eye of professionals taking part in the Interieur Biennale, and it is therefore the perfect chance for useful networking,' say Margo Konings and Margriet Vollenberg of Organisation in Design.

“The partnership with Organisation in Design is one of our steps in the realisation of our intent to turn the city of Kortrijk into a vibrant venue during the Biennale Interieur 2012,” says Lowie Vermeersch, President of the Biennale Interieur. “There’s need and place for an open platform which enriches and strengthens our own selection with a more avant-garde and cutting edge spirit our critical and international audience is looking for.”

Interieur is globally recognised as a must-see design event in autumn with specially curated experiences. In 2010 the Biennale Interieur attracted over 90,000 visitors from 59 countries on an exhibition surface of 40,000 square meters.
