At Europe’s Newest Design Fair, We’re Presenting New Work by Chen and Kai and Mimi Jung

This winter, we’re building on a very exciting trajectory that began with our presence at two Collective Design Fairs in New York, and continued when we presented the work of 13 American studios at the London Design Fair this past fall. From March 8 to 11, Sight Unseen will have a booth at the brand-new Collectible design fair in Brussels, where we’ll showcase new lighting by Chen Chen and Kai Williams and new wall works by Mimi Jung, alongside exhibitors like Maniera Gallery, Valerie Traan, and more than a dozen independent design studios.

Founded by a team that has run art fairs in the past — and aimed primarily at the legions of art collectors based in Belgium and nearby countries — Collectible is a fair after our own hearts, with an emphasis not just on transactions but “on creativity,” the founders state. We’re joining the conversation with two of the most creative studios we know: Los Angeles–based artist Mimi Jung, who’s exploring tension and color saturation in her latest woven wall works, and New York design duo Chen Chen & Kai Williams, who are debuting a series of lamps called Brittle Stars, in which zinc is poured over glass spheres to generate clusters of ‘stained glass’ that diffuse light.

Check out a preview of both collections below, and come see us in Brussels if you’re able!
