Pro Materia, Creative Design Consultancy

Publisher & Curator

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 2009 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, organization 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.
