EN_ By opening Spazio Nobile in 2016 in the very lively and cosmopolitan neighbourhood of Place Brugmann in Brussels, art historians Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for design and art history, initiating an erudite dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. With no boundaries between disciplines, the visual arts interact with the fine arts. Commissioning a collection of unique pieces, limited editions and installations both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensitivity to everything related to nature and minerality, each year the gallery organises five exhibitions and several events in art and heritage venues (Maison Louis Carré, Yvelines, France, arch. Alvar Aalto; Ancienne Nonciature, Grand Sablon, Lempertz (former galerie Leroy Frères), Brussels, etc). Spazio Nobile also takes part in Belgian and international fairs such as Art Brussels, Luxembourg Art Week, Art on Paper, Collectible Design Fair, PAD Paris and PAD London, Design Miami / Basel, Unique Design Shanghai, etc. The gallery is celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2021, and represents around 30 emerging and renowned artists and designers on an international scale, while promoting high-end craftsmanship and the cultures of East and West. Spazio Nobile also curates “TLmag_True Living of Art & Design”, established by Lise Coirier in 2008; through this bi-annual art and design magazine, available in print and online, the gallery shares its selection and its artistic and cultural commitment to collectible art and design. Spazio Nobile has received the Homo Faber label of excellence, and continues exploring its “Glass is Tomorrow” international project. In 2020, Spazio Nobile Gallery opened Spazio Nobile Studiolo, a permanent exhibition space located across from the main gallery which is located at the ‘bel étage’ of a 1920s house. The ‘Studiolo’ was the Italian Renaissance ancestor of the cabinet of curiosities. Simultaneously intimate, educational, symbolic and allegorical, it is open to the public, creating an environment that encourages discovery, and shaped a taste and appreciation for the arts. Its thematic window display can be unexpected, and provides illumination into Spazio Nobile through its curated exhibitions. Spazio Nobile also has a window display in the heart of the Sablon – Brussels Arts District, in the atelier of artist Bela Silva, across from Brussels’ Baroque Minimes Church.

FR_ En ouvrant Spazio Nobile Gallery en 2016 dans le quartier cosmopolite de la place Brugmann à Bruxelles, Lise Coirier et Gian Giuseppe Simeone, tous deux historiens de l’art, ont uni leurs passions pour la création et l’histoire de l’art, en initiant un dialogue érudit entre les arts appliqués contemporains, le design et la photographie. Sans tisser de frontières entre les disciplines, les arts visuels interagissent avec les beaux-arts. Initiant une collection de pièces uniques, d’éditions limitées et d’installations à la fois expérimentales et artistiques, avec une sensibilité particulière à tout ce qui touche à la nature et à la minéralité, la galerie organise chaque année jusqu’à cinq expositions et plusieurs événements dans des hauts lieux d’art et de patrimoine (Maison Louis Carré, Yvelines, France, arch. Alvar Aalto ; L’Ancienne Nonciature, Grand Sablon, Lempertz (ex-galerie Leroy Frères), Bruxelles, …). Spazio Nobile participe aussi à des salons d’art belges et internationaux tels que Art Brussels, Luxembourg Art Week, Art On Paper, Collectible Design Fair, PAD Paris et PAD London, Design Miami / Basel, Unique Design Shanghai… La galerie fête ses cinq ans en 2021 et représente une trentaine d’artistes et de designers émergents et renommés à l’échelle internationale tout en promouvant le savoir-faire d’excellence et les cultures d’Orient et d’Occident. Spazio Nobile est également l’éditeur de « TLmag_True Living of Art & Design » né en 2008, le magazine semestriel d’art et de design, imprimé et en ligne, partageant ainsi sa sélection et son engagement artistique et culturel envers l’art et le design de collection. La galerie a reçu le label d’excellence « Homo Faber » et perpétue son projet « Glass is Tomorrow ». Depuis 2020, Spazio Nobile Gallery a ouvert Spazio Nobile Studiolo, un espace d’exposition qui a pignon sur rue en face de la galerie situé au ‘bel étage’ de la maison des années 1920. Le « Studiolo » est un ancêtre du « cabinet de curiosités » de la Renaissance italienne. À la fois intime, didactique, symbolique et allégorique, il est ouvert au public et crée un environnement propice à la découverte, forgeant le goût et l’appréciation des arts. Sa vitrine thématique est surprenante et traduit une pensée éclairée de Spazio Nobile au fil de ses expositions. Outre sa présence en haut de la ville, Spazio Nobile a également inauguré une vitrine d’exposition au cœur du Sablon – quartier des Arts  – dans l’atelier de l’artiste Bela Silva, en face de l’église baroque des Minimes à Bruxelles.

Pro Materia / TL Magazine

Founded in 1999 by Lise Coirier with the support of an advisory board, Brussels-based Pro Materia is a creative consultancy with a strong affinity for material culture, craft-led innovation and human-centered design. The intellectual, editorial approach and background in art and design history and management position the agency in the field of supporting and promoting up-and-coming talents on multiple fronts in different regions but to also work closely and bringing together different partners (designers, artists, makers, creative industries, design-led institutions and brands) from all over the world.

Having founded and headed the biannual and online publication TLmag _True Living of Art & Design since late 2008 between Paris and Brussels, Pro Materia also produces special editions and exhibitions in-line with both commercial and cultural projects. The agency also initiates and curates multiple European Union funded projects by the Culture and Creative Europe Programmes – including Glass is Tomorrow (since 2011) and Human Cities (since 2008) – but has also published and contributed to multiple anthologies, monographs and catalogues – such as Design in Belgium, Belgium is Design, Label.be, Imperfect by Design, Beauty – Singular / Plural, Materialise.MGX, Xavier Lust and Anne Derasse. Interiors. With decades of prior experience in cultural management, organisation of engaging workshops, inspiring lectures, guided trend tours, publishing and curation, Pro Materia has mirrored the emergence of different scenes including the revival of the international design scene. Pro Materia has therefore established a rich international network of journalists, editors, curators, coordinators, graphic and web designers, working on hands-on projects that further the mandate of contemporary creativity. 20-years of experience in publishing, organization, curation and promotion has garnered this dynamic consultancy a powerful understanding, vision, and arsenal of design-led tools and savoir-faire.
