The Biennale Interieur is a non-profit organisation acting in the field of design, product development and innovation. It was founded in 1967, in Kortrijk (Belgium), to put contemporary design for the home and interior innovations on display for a general public and not only for professionals, as with most other fairs.

They didn’t want to be like other furniture shows, which offered a mixture of old, new, kitsch and design. The organisation wanted its Biennale only to promote the latest contemporary forms and creativity in interior design.
