The Bollart® at the World Exhibition in Shanghai

A group of various designs of the Antwerp Bollart® (Who says A, must say Bollart® …) was selected as a structure of still life objects at the entrance of the Belgian-European pavilion of the World Expo in Shanghai which is designed by Christine Conix and her team, opening day 1st of May 2010, a location where an impressive 5.000 visitors per hour will wander by up to end October. The Antwerp Bollart®-collection is therefore a perfect match with the theme of the World Expo: Better City, Better Life.

After the Expo 2010 the Antwerp Bollart® designs will be exhibited as a permanent collection in the Museum of Belgium and the European Union, which will be established in China.
