TURN ME ON: Brussels

21 September - 18 November 2017

Gokelaere & Robinson presents an exhibition dedicated to rare designers’ lights. 

The invention of incandescent light bulb in the 1870s led to lighting becoming one of the first publicly available applications of electrical power. During twentieth century, designers took over this new technology to challenge their desire of creating welcoming and functional, yet aesthetic interiors. Some of them went even further by exploiting the highly decorative potential of lamps and creating real sculptures.
