At the end of the 19 century, Belgium artists as Horta, Cauchie … inspired by the aesthetics of curves give a new air to the artistic world. Based on natural forms and structures (fauna, flora and light), they used all types of materials (furniture, dishes, haute couture …) to create surprising works. This innovative and creative trend benefited the city of Brussels, which was in full development during the rise of this new concept. Subsequently, this artistic movement evolved towards a more refined art inspired by geometric forms called today the “Art Déco”!
By walking around neighborhoods of Brussels, such as Schaerbeek, Etterbeek, Ixelles or Saint Gilles, it is quite possible to come face to face with a facade inspired by this artistic movement (some of them are inscribed to the UNESCO).
Do not wait, grab your map and travel as quickly as possible the streets of Brussels.
