An interactive display of new objects and reigning trends for 2017
'Future Archive’ is a project by Biennale Interieur and Baroness O., which gathers a selection of the newest and most innovative furniture and accessories that every visitor should remember. The Future Archive is a depot, a museum and an archive all in one, presenting inspiring objects in straightforward rows which make the design easy to look at and figure out. The object is presented in its own strong and innovative form and stands out of the simplicity of the presentation.
To show the possibilities of the trending objects in the archive, a group of creatives will be invited to create a unique visual installation with the pieces on show. Each day a stylist, photographer, designer, musician, foodie, ... is free to create his own vision, in his own field and interest, with all of the creatives having a different approach, highlighting different pieces from the selection. Photo and/or video and social media are key elements in each act.
Anna Badur, Atelier Haussmann, Bord Bord, Britta Knüppel, Catherine Lovatt, David & Golitah, Design is Wolf, e15, etc etc, Founded, Fritz un Franken, Imke Höfker, Klaar Prims, Manutti, Marina Bautier, Naknak, Niruk, Nyta, Palau, Petite Friture, PJ Mare, Rombaut, Royal Botania, Ruckstuhl, Studio Lorier, Strackk, Tersago Dedecker, Van den Weghe, Weltevree,...

Confirmed line-up of creatives
Check out their unique settings in Hall 4/Stand 436 of Kortrijk Xpo:
- 14.10.2016: Disco Naïveté
Jarri from music blog Disco Naïveté will set up a music installation in which 10 visitors can intimately plunge into innovatory songs and musicians, selected by Jarri.
- 15.10.2016: Bureau Grusenmeyer
The way in which furniture is made, depends from the tools that are needed. Nowadays, many designs are made in digital programs, which shows in the final object. Design often has the same linearity as a drawing, transported into a spatial setting. Using light, shade and collage, Lauren Grusenmeyer will take the pieces back to their 2D form, into a form of drawing.
- 16.10.2016: Studio Dessuant Bone
Paris-based creative studio Dessuant Bone will be shooting the archive through different cut out shapes in order to give the pieces a new dimension and angle.
- 17.10.2016: The Fresh Light
Dorothee's simple yet evocative photographic style captures the beauty of ordinary things. With a background in architecture, space, light and design will come together with the surprising element of food in a series of inspiring captures.
- 18.10.2016: Faked Candid
The two visual artists behind Singapore-based studio Faked Candid will make time tangible through their performance with melting wax.
- 19.10.2016: Studio Basil
Studio basil will mount a one day study to research the social and personal value of the presented objects. As the objective value of these objects is already known and determined by the designer, it is the subjective value that makes clear if this design will endure the test of time. Whilst these designs disappear into the collective archives, the audience is stimulated to communicate their valuation through an interactive game by labeling the design objects.
- 20.10.2016: PPP
Eva Raffaella Menga combines design with food, with emphasis on clear lines, reflection and aesthetics. Purifying the essence within texture of taste where we planted a seed of hope.
- 21.10.2016: Athos Burez x Florence Teerlinck

- 22.10.2016: Evenbeeld x Kroma

- 23.10.2016: Hardwearing
Hardwearing will release their recognizable sense of aesthetics on the selection of objects. Using simple-yet-striking scenography, Joeri and Pieter will create a dreamlike world, highlighting the elements of their choice on set, in pictures and video.
