DESIGNERS OF THE YEAR 2006-2013

The Belgian Designers of the Year from 2006 to 2013 worked together on the design for the Interieur Bistro.

Encounters, experiences and Belgian hospitality take a central role in the Interieur Bistro. The former canteen of the Broel School is the place to be, radiating authenticity. The design of the Bistro’s interior underlines the character of the canteen and also plays on the theme of ‘Belgian absurdity’: expect a fantastical canteen. Honest Belgian cuisine such as mash, game and eel are on the menu. At the same time, it encourages moments to share, with big jugs of Belgian beer, chunks of local cheese and coffee served with gingerbread.

The Interieur Bistro welcomes up to 150 guests and is open from lunchtime until late. Visitors can enjoy a quick lunch, afternoon coffee, aperitif and dinner in the evening. The entrance is located near the Guido Gezellepad, next to the historic bridge and the Broel Towers.

Catering by Delicious Catering from Bruges.

The Belgian Designers of the Year – Alain Berteau (2006), Nedda El-Asmar (2007), Stefan Schöning (2008), Sylvain Willenz (2009), Bram Boo (2010), Nathalie Dewez (2011), Alain Gilles (2012), and Jean-François D’Or (2013) – are the second collective to design the Interieur Bistro, after a successful first edition with Design Marketo from London during the Biennale INTERIEUR 2012.
