Atomium + ADAM Brussels

Post by studio-pots on November 22nd 2016, 12:56 pm

Been away for a long weekend in Brussels and visited the Atomium, which was originally built for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair.

Had visited previously before it was renovated in 2004 but it was good to revisit and, as an icon of mid-century design it's really a "must see" for members of this Forum if they ever visit Brussels.

An added bonus was ADAM, Art & Design Atomium Museum, nearby that has recently opened. It stages exhibition that change 3 or 4 times a year plus "Plasticarium" that is a permanent display of design in plastic.

A few images from the display: -

............. and the Zombie Chair designed by Roger Tallon in 1967 that I hadn't seen before.
