Museum with a difference!

Art museum offers a unique experience to plastic art lovers

Imagine being a child of the 1960s and finding the plastic furniture and kitchen utensils that your parents used being exhibited in a museum! Well, enthusiasts of these and other items can now enjoy a unique experience by visiting the Plasticarium, a treasure trove of plastics paraphernalia. Hidden behind an Art Deco façade in a small, narrow street in the city of Brussels, Belgium, this museum is the private collection of artist and collector Philippe Decelle.

The aim of the museum is to respect the creativity of the 1960s generation. Back then the artists who worked with plastic materials were able to create styles that today are as eye-catching and absorbing as ever. All the trends are represented, from Pop and Op’ Art, to radical design and new realism. Visitors will find everything from round high-stools to a myriad of kitchen utensils in all possible (and sometimes impossible!) colours. Quirky Elephant chairs, inflatable sofas, armchairs and day beds and a wide variety of wall furnishings help to make a trip to this museum highly memorable and educational.
