About this spot
A few steps from the Belgian Chocolate Village, the Cabosse pays tribute to a neighborhood where chocolate occupies a prominent place.

The fountain consists of four large water jets and a work of art in the shape of a cocoa fruit, made of 200 triangles of stainless, high-gloss polished steel. The cocoa fruit itself is "carried" by 80 small water jets. This makes it appear as if the fruit is floating above the water. The reflections of the artwork, the reflection of the water and the illumination of the fountain will give the public space a new look. The fountain will become a new landmark of Koekelberg, establishes the link with the history of the municipality and ensures that the area around Simonisstation and Elisabethpark is a pleasant place to walk, shop or have a drink.

The work of art is the icing on the cake of the redevelopment works at the Simonisplein in the heart of Koekelberg, which not only generates extra appeal for the surrounding businesses and catering industry, but also shows recognition for the industrial heritage of Koekelberg and our chocolate museum, the Belgian Chocolate Village.

The Cabosse will be inaugurated on June 30, 2017
