To hunt and to collect – verbs that define a means of survival, as well as a way of life. Recently, modern culture has witnessed a new strand in human evolution – the emergence of a global community that is becoming more and more mobile, constantly craving cutting edge ideas and up to date information. We now belong to a society that uses the Internet and the latest technological developments to literally hunt and collect the products that correspond best to the lives of each individual. ‘Hunting and Collecting’ aims to respond to the needs and desires of this new community.
Occupying a 300m2 space over two levels, “Hunting and Collecting” carries a constantly rotating selection of more than 30 exclusive brands for men, women and children. The store also provides footwear, accessories, design objects, and press dedicated to modern culture. On the lower level, a newly refurbished gallery space holds regular exhibitions, showcasing the latest works of artists and designers.
The Commerce Design Award has been launched in Montreal (Canada) in 1995 in order to stimulate local merchants to invest in the furnishing of their commercial spaces with the assistance of a qualified professional. The initiative spread immediately to cities all over the world (Saint-Etienne, Marseille, Lyon, Nantes, Luxemburg, Eindhoven, …) among which our own capital that celebrates this year the second edition of the Commerce Design Brussels competition, coordinated by Pro Materia and Design September (with the support of the City of Montreal, Brussels Capital Region, Atrium, Brussels Louise and institutional and private partners).
