From 21 November 2018 until 5 May 2019, the ADAM-Brussels Design Museum presents Night Fever: Designing Club Culture 1960–Today. Co-produced with the Vitra Design Museum, this exhibition is the first large-scale examination of the relationship between club culture and design, from past to present. The nightclub is one of the most important design spaces in contemporary culture. Since the 1960s, nightclubs have been epicentres of pop culture, distinct spaces of nocturnal leisure providing architects and designers all over the world with opportunities and inspiration.
