Competition: Dezeen has teamed up with Biennale Interieur to give away five pairs of tickets to the Belgian design festival, which takes place in Kortrijk from 17 to 26 October.
Now in its 24th edition, Biennale Interieur is a bi-annual showcase of design, product development and innovation. Over 100,000 visitors are expected to attend the festival, which is spread across two locations: Kortrijk Xpo and the city’s cultural centre, Buda Island.

This year’s cultural programme is curated by architecture critic Joseph Grima, with the help of his Genoa-based design and research collaborative Space Caviar, who will present a series of talks, exhibitions and events at Kortrijk Xpo and Buda Island.
Buda Island is the home of the official city programme, which will consist of a visually-linked trail where visitors will encounter young design talent, cultural installations and interactive spaces.

The six halls of the Kortrijk Xpo venue will house more than 270 selected design brands and a specially curated exhibition of new work by nine previous winners of the Biennale Interieur Designer of the Year award. In the centre of each hall, visitors will find an open area containing freestanding “plug-and-play islands,” bars and installations.

At the central “Rambla” of Kortrijk Xpo, Grima will present an installation called SQM: Theatre of Everyday Life, which will address contemporary concepts of domesticity in the context of an information economy, network culture and “technological saturation”.
