January 18 at LinkLab Creative Offices

At the beginning of December 2023, Link Lab's Kortrijk team received the prestigious WORKSPACE (small) award at the World Architecture Festival for their own office on the Veemarkt in Kortrijk!

The choice of location for this edition was therefore quickly made.

We once again provided a varied line-up of speakers, all recently nominated for great prizes!

On stage:

-Link Lab itself, with Simon Adriaenssens from Stay Studio
-Kortrijk fashion designer Charbel Abou Zeidan from Octogony, nominated for the Belgian Fashion Awards 2023 in the Emerging Talent category
-Alyssa Lanssiers, alumnus UGent Campus Kortrijk and currently a product design engineering lead at Loop Earplugs, Scale-up of the Year 2023 and winner of the Henry van de Velde Awards 2024 Consumer category.

September 28 at Atelier Nooitgedacht

We looked ahead to WONDER Creativity Festival with some designers there!

Multidisciplinary designer Timon Mattelaer on Belgian Design Pavilion, a curated collective exhibition showing the essence of Belgian design and how it relates to his own design practice.

Social psychologist and designer Bram Boris Van Acker on A hearth full of changes and how the scientific basis for his behavioural change designs can provide an interesting perspective.

Product designer and artist Yani Vandenbranden on Cabaret voltaire anno 23, a collective with different designers from different contexts looking for answers and a broader understanding of her own work.
