The Plasticarium Collection

Place de Belgique, 1 - 1020 Laeken map

The ADAM [Brussels Design Museum] is installed in part of Brussels International Trade Mart [BITM], and has a surface area of around 5,000m², almost half of which is to be devoted to the permanent collection of the former Plasticarium, which will keep its name. It comprises more then 2,000 pieces ranging from everyday objects to works of art via designer items. A stool, a desk, an alarm clock, a lamp... we tend to forget that not so long ago plastic was everywhere. As there will not be sufficient space in the ADAM to present the collection in its entirety, the display will be rotated on an annual basis. This will offer visitors a different experience with every new visit to the museum.
