Photo story: Night Fever expo – Designing Club Culture.

We were very happy to attend the opening of the new expo in Brussels – dedicated to night clubs and the culture that surrounds it. The exhibition is titled Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today and is coproduced with Vitra Design Museum. It represents the first large-scale examination of the relationship between the club culture and design.

The idea of the show is to explore the broader meaning of nightclubs and the culture that surrounds it. Namely, night clubs represent one of the most important spaces in our contemporary culture while some of them managed to become a reference point and inspiration for the architects and designers.

Starting in the 1960s, nightclubs have been epicenters of pop culture and new vivid night life, which provided architects and designers all over the world with opportunities and inspiration for creating unique and special places. These spaces merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, graphics, and visual effects. 

The exhibits on display range from films and vintage photographs to flyers, posters, records, fashion and artworks relating to some of the world’s most iconic nightclubs.

One of the unique experiences that visitors of this expo enjoyed was an amazing music and light installation created by German designer Konstantin Grcic who turned a model of smart car into a mobile disco. He designed a DJ booth, including a cabin, mixer, a smoke machine and various lighting effects. Visitors of the opening night in Brussels had a chance to enjoy the dance beats that were played from the smart mobile disco.  

The exhibition in ADAM museum can be seen until 05.05.2019. and is supported by smart and Hugo Boss. More info can be found on the originally published article on WeLoveBrussels website.
