During the Brussels Gallery Weekend (5.–8.9.2019), the Spazio Nobile gallery will host a private exhibition by designer Laura Laine, which will feature a series of Laine’s new glass sculptures. At the end of September, a group exhibition of 18 Finnish craft artists will be opened in the same gallery on the 19th of September and will be on display until the end of 2019.

The project is a part of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux’s theme for 2019, which is RE/definitions.
