This year's fair brings together hundreds of international exhibitors with their latest designs, alongside installations conceived by curator Joseph Grima of Space Caviar. Picture is 'SQM: The Theatre of Everyday Life', which explores the home as an evolving unit of space, economy, and society. Photography: Delfino Sisto Legnani
这是一个不同的观点,尤其是在家具展览会上。但在比利时Kortrijk XPO展厅外,第24届双年展室内家具交易会正在举行-一个巨大的广告牌宣布:“家不存在”。
Visitors navigate a landscape of artefacts, film, drawings, photos, and information in a structure assembled at an architectural scale, with winding paths and staircases transforming the Rambla’s skylights into inhabitable space. Photography: Delfino Sisto Legnani
Barrisol, manufacturer of stretched ceilings, has collaborated with Ross Lovegrove on a series of volumetric lighting pieces. 'Manta', 'Infinite Loop', 'Beta' and 'Sigma' were presented in a space with an aesthetic 'that lies between the deep ocean and deep space'
The new lights by Lovegrove provide layered acoustic dampening and uniform lighting making it a good solution for large architectural spaces such as airports, atriums and factories
The shiny exterior of Ross Lovegrove’s installation for Barrisol was reminiscent of a copper hall of mirrors
Alberto Artesani, Frederik De Wachter, Francesca Perani and Sandra Marchesi teamed up to design Dried Chat Room, one of the bistro/bars at the fair. Photography: Francesca Perani
'In Quarto' table, by Pawel Grobelny, was debuted by Buda Gallery
Verner Panton’s 'Flowerpot' lamp from 1968 is now being reproduced in four metallic finishes by &Tradition
Part of the SQM program takes place in Kortrijk’s city centre, where the exhibition 'SQM: The Quantified Home' takes over the abandoned Broelschool, which will soon be demolished. Photography: Delfino Sisto Legnani
In order to create the exhibition, Space Caviar and graphic design firm Folder hosted the Broelschool Demolition Workshop in which a group of ten participants carved alternative routes through the building to form a timeline of domestic space. Photography: Delfino Sisto Legnani
Installation view of 'SQM: The Quantified Home'. Blending quotes, data, and diagrams, the timeline leads visitors to explore changing ideas of the home. Photography: Wouter Van Vaerenbergh
'SQM: Roomba Ballet' forms the end of the timeline in the school’s gymnasium. It represents the apotheosis of the smart home, in a choreography of Roomba robotic vacuum cleaners. Photography: Delfino Sisto Legnani
Elsewhere in Kortrijk, Glithero's 'Fantoom' installation at the Broelmuseum highlights to visitors the instution's uncertain future, and the transient nature of any museum collection - permanent or otherwise
The installations use light and reflection to create ethereal ghosts artefacts alongside real pieces
Back at the main fair, Zeitraum was among a number of brands exhibiting pieces refreshed with new textiles. A particular favourite across the fair were Raf Simons' collection for Kvadrat

'DAN', Bulo's new modular furniture system, uses a plain black ladder element and multiple surfaces to create everything from shelving to work stations, ping pong tables and a bar
