It’s their turn! The women of the Plastic Design Collection of the Design Museum Brussels

Guided tour
Matrimony Days 2022
11:00-12:30 Design Museum Brussels

In the 20th century, women’s creativity deeply shaped and expanded design. Designers, architects, pioneers of modernity, creators of new lifestyles or even arts patrons, in their own way, all left their mark on the history of design. Thanks to a selection of works from the Plastic Design Collection, this guided tour retraces their impact and shows the wide range of fields in which they excelled. The tales of these women, those who were on the forefront of the creative panorama and those who were forgotten by history as their male counterparts made them invisible, will be told.

The Design Museum Brussels, whose début followed the acquisition of a private collection by the Atomium, is dedicated to design and design history, with a historical, social, cultural, and political approach to design. Cristina Bargna, Head of Collections and Exhibition at the Design Museum Brussels, guides this tour.
