to Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium
for a One Day and One Night programme

Through experience and knowledge of the design industry, dotsandplanes understands better than anyone what professionals expect from a hosted tour. With a high pace and in small groups, they get to know each other, meet relevant contacts at the brands and see the story behind the products.

Discovery of Biennale Interieur

In a rapidly changing world, the Biennale Interieur is a platform for selected companies and talent, that dare to make a meaningful statement. “the fair to go to for those in the know” as Monocle stated is different then it’s counterparts by its special scenography and the flavour of what Belgian design means today.

A networking dinner

The tours started with a discovery of the historic city of Kortrijk upon arrival and networking dinner at the Interieur house, a 17th century neoclassical mansion.

11 tours with small groups
2 company visits per tour

For the first time Belgian 22 companies opened their doors for an exclusive visit behind the scenes.

Ce fut parfait et intéressant. Encore un grand merci à l'équipe de Intérieur et aux entreprises pour leur invitations.

Stephane Parmertier

Ich möchte mich noch einmal ganz herzlich für die zwei tollen Tage in Kortrijk bedanken! Mein Dank gilt Dir und allen die diese Reise ermöglicht haben.
Der Flug, das Hotel, die Stadt, das Abendessen, die Firmenpräsentationen, die Messe, alles war toll! Dieser Kurztrip wird bei mir noch lange nachwirken!

Robert

Just a note to say an enormous thank you for a wonderful couple of days in Belgium. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and were so pleased to see and meet the teams from Modular and Extremis and to be given the opportunity to experience the Biennale. It was all superb.

About dotsandplanes


Dotsandplanes was founded in 2015 by design experts Joost Vanhecke and An Michiels and organises curated tours for professionals. Connecting and inspiring is central to their approach. They brought international clients to leading events like Art Basel and to European design destinations such as Copenhagen and Zurich. Their Belgian clients discovered the heart of the architecture, interiors, innovation and making industry in lesser known cities, such as Talinn and Graz.

The tours focus on small groups and are guided personally by Joost, An and contacts in their network of international design professionals.
