The 4th edition

The 2022 edition will again be organized in the beautiful Gare Maritime site at Tour & Taxis, as one of the highlights of the Brussels Design September program, no doubt again resulting in over 7000 visitors and extensive media coverage.

Every year CDM appoints a Guest of Honor and a Young Talent Guest of Honor. This year, for the first time, CDM will also present one BINOME, a creative duo, brought together to explore their different backgrounds in order to find a mutual language, resulting in a design item that will be presented at CDM.


In total around 50 designers and design companies will be able to present their work at CDM.


  CDM now invites designers working in Belgium to apply to join the 2022 edition!






Belgium is known for its creativity, and Brussels for its cosmopolitan nature and multi-diversity. CDM wants to be a culmination of those influences: a reflection and a celebration of today’s design in all its forms and diversity. Design from different angles and cultural backgrounds, in different styles, colors, shapes and visual languages. Therefore CDM strongly invites designers from diverse backgrounds and cultures to apply and join.
