Galerie Solvay is a somewhat unusual project, it is my project, a getting together of my passions, which I always wanted to share with aesthetic, coffee-loving, reading, curious, dreaming people … More than a concept store, Galerie Solvay is an atypical place where photography, illustration, artwork, limited editions, toy cars and excellent coffee come together. A convivial place, where you will not be bored, where always something is happening.
I am Thibaut Joire-Noulens, also known as The Trabanoscope, founder of Galerie Solvay by the Trabanoscope, photographer and coffee lover. The past seven years, I have produced and I am still producing a large number of photographic and otherwise graphic artwork, in an atypical and original style.
I had exhibitions in different places in Paris, Ile de France and in The Netherlands. This project came to my mind in a natural way, in meeting with and talking to people during the years. I followed my ambition and my exuberant imagination that said: a simple gallery is not enough, it has to be more than that. I’d like to bring together my passions in one place, in order to be able to share. That is the way how Galerie Solvay by the Trabanoscope was born.

This wide and very sunny street leads you, after a calm walk in the park, Jardin Luxembourg, into the tempting and lively area of Saint Germain des Prés…or the other way around. The perfect neighborhood for an artistic and immersing break. Exactly the way how I found this magical spot. A Sunday afternoon, after a walk in the Jardin Luxembourg, looking around at the boutiques in the Rue de Tournon, my steps led me to number 21. Boutique for rent, said a big affiche on the door, including a telephone number. The discovery of this boutique brought my idea of a concept store to life. It was a clear and magical getting together, the planets were in line. I put everything aside, took my Nokia 3310 and saved the telephone number in order to call the next day. That is how and where Galerie Solvay started.
Galerie Solvay was founded by Thibaut Joire-Noulens, photographic artist
The concept store cannot do without coffee, but not just a coffee a very good coffee
A strict selection of the limited editions in order to offer the best
A selection of illustrations in the concept store - why not
Deep inside it is my belief that art is made to be shared and criticised and therefor I designed an interactive and innovative website, developed by Mooverflow. The site gives you the opportunity to have a look at, comment and share the works that are exposed in the gallery.
You are invited to vote for the works on the site that strike you and by doing that, begin or end your experience in Galerie Solvay. A real challenge for me, photographer, continuously looking to produce more and at the same time introduce to you more and better work.
