Nestled in the thoughtfully restored 5 rue Coppens, Augusta gallery stands as a testament to the power of sustainable design. This unique space is dedicated to showcasing the ingenuity of European designers who turn recycled or bio-based materials into innovative creations. Through an eclectic mix of solo, duo, and group exhibitions, Augusta captures the essence and dynamism of eco-conscious artistry.
At the helm of Augusta are the van Dievoet sisters, Ariane and Lara, who named the gallery in honor of their great-grandmother, Augusta Debled—an art gallerist of the 1920s. Lara van Dievoet directs communications for Augusta, applying her academic insights in media to spotlight eco-responsible artists and their work. Ariane, a designer with a penchant for material repurposing, established her own studio, AVANDI, in Brooklyn before returning to Brussels. With a decade of experience in eco-design, prototyping, and fostering local production, she also imparts her knowledge on product design at CAD and serves on the board of Micro Factory.
Together, the sisters have created more than just a gallery; Augusta is a vibrant community hub for designers and the public to converge, reflect, and engage with sustainable design practices that pave the way for a greener future.
Sench proudly supports Augusta’s vision of art, recognizing their contribution to sustainable design and innovation. Their commitment to eco-conscious creativity aligns with our ethos, making them a valued member of our community.
