The centre's mission is to support new talents by providing them with work and exhibition space, and advice.

Rehabilitation

It all began at the end of the 1980s. The area was a bit rough and the city decided to renovate it. The De Winkelhaak design centre took advantage of the wave to get a new start. It's now one of the nicest buildings on the street and this masterpiece of architecture has already won many prizes.

100% design

The building is divided into different areas: the lower floor is a permanent exhibition room for architecture, new media and general design works. Entrance is free. You can get lost in the kitschy 100% design shop on the ground floor. It sells a huge range of original and affordable objects that emphasise the work of young Belgian creators.
The upper floor is for young entrepreneurs who want to share a work space. I sometimes stop by between two meetings or on my lunch break. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff is friendly.

Opening hours:
Mo-Fr: 9 am - 6 pm
Sa: 2 pm - 6 pm

Marie-France, 32 Public relations manager

Born in Africa, I've lived between Europe, the United States and my homeland. A real mix of cultures! I'm always connected to social networks and on the lookout for great fashion, lifestyle, music and outing deals. I work in Antwerp as a public relations manager. I'm also a presenter for a TV music channel. My little extra: I like to get out and meet people.
