About Spazio Nobile

By opening Spazio Nobile (by Pro Materia Gallery) in 2016, in the dynamic and cosmopolitan Ixelles neighbourhood of Brussels (Belgium), Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for design and art history, initiating a dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Commissioning unique pieces, limited editions and installations that are both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensibility to everything nature and minerality, the gallery organises four to five exhibits each year, dedicated to both rising and established talents, without creating borders between disciplines, the visual arts dialoguing with the fine arts.

À propos de Spazio Nobile

En ouvrant Spazio Nobile (by Pro Materia Gallery) en 2016 dans le quartier très animé et cosmopolite d’Ixelles à Bruxelles (BE), Lise Coirier et Gian Giuseppe Simeone ont uni leurs passions pour la création et l’histoire de l’art en prenant le parti de faire dialoguer arts appliqués contemporains, design et photographie. En donnant l’impulsion à la création 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 quatre à cinq expositions dédiées à des talents émergents ou déjà confirmés. Sans mettre de frontière entre les disciplines, les arts visuels côtoient les beaux-arts.

Spazio Nobile is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11.00 until 18.00 or by appointment.
