Brussels design emporium Espace Bizarre

Design store Espace Bizarre has been one of Brussels’ best shopping stops for donkey’s years (since 1989, to be exact), churning out carefully selected design furniture and accessories from all over the world. We had a look around and made a selection of our favourite goodies.

German native Jens Rodieck, who took over Espace Bizarre back in 1993, gave the shop its direction that we know and love today: while the shop specialised only in Japanese furniture pieces in the early days, Jens transformed it into a true concept store that flogs everything from a coffee spoon to large-scale installations. “We still have Japanese furniture on offer, but our selection became much more international”, Jens explains, adding: “And we try to satisfy the different needs of our customers: While we sell very expensive stuff, we also offer things for those who are looking for high quality interior pieces on a smaller budget.” When rummaging through the shop, we came across lamps by Italian light makers Foscarini or Moooi, accessories by Muuto, but also furniture by Moroso, Belgium’s Feld and a whole bunch of other Italian brands – an eclectic, exquisite and hand-picked-with-love selection.
