The Plasticarium collection moves to the Atomium
The Atomium is developing a new exhibition area in one of its balls to welcome the Plasticarium collection in December 2015.

Until recently, the Plasticarium was located in the center of Brussels, at 35 rue du Locquenghien. The very colorful collection by Philippe Decelle spread out over 3 floors of the house. This area was entirely devoted to plastic objects: art, furniture, electric kitchen appliances, etc. from the 1960's till now.

"Orange Dreams. Plastic if fantastic (1960-1973)" takes the visitors back to the plastic Golden Sixties. The exhibition shows the most original aspects of plastic design. From the daily object to the work of art, the color orange is present in every piece...
