Art in the Box

Art in the Box - a new system of street gallery invented to share design ideas in a dynamic society. An original project launched by D44 Architecture - a Brussels-based architectural office.

Exhibition idea transformed from old-fashion enclosed gallery into the Art in the Box – a minimalistic box placed on the street accessible for everybody.
This is the place where the contemporary design is now on display. Wooden boxes (around 3x3m) with transparent fronts resembling a gigantic retro TV-set that present contemporary design.
The boxes are well lit and easily accessible for everyone. Available at any time - day and night and accompanied with a brief summary explaining the objects presented.

Art in the Box opens borders for design and brings it closer to people. It is a new way to present products and ideas in a dynamic society. Crazy inventions, unique concepts, simple models - everything can be shown.

Exhibitions for individuals and public services can be organized within the project. Art in the Box can also be presented as part of international design festivals.
