Nour al Nimer has always been at the crossroads between the East and West. Born in Beirut to a Palestinian father and Turkish mother, she brings a unique medley of cultural references to Nimerology, a luxury chinaware label that translates Nour’s personal experiences into elegant pieces of tableware.
Nimerology was founded in 2012 after Nour completed training at the famed Chelsea School of Art & Design with an MA in Fine Arts. Prior to this, she read Surface Print Design at the London College of Communication and completed her foundation year in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins. After launching her label in London, she relocated to Istanbul in 2015.
Nour’s belief in art, as an integral part of everyday life, is expressed through her work. Nimerology’s exquisitely crafted tableware melds aesthetic sensibilities with straightforward functionality, as each piece brings a dash of unexpected beauty to the commonplace. The result is enchanting.
Travel remains an integral part of Nour’s creative process. Each collection draws upon her latest excursion, transforming Nour’s intimate experiences of a country’s history and culture into an inimitable vision. “My inspiration comes from my personal journeys and travels,” she explains. From there, her photographs, sketches and paintings slowly shape a coherent theme that plays out across each piece.
Nimerology has been featured in Architectural Digest (AD) India, Candid Magazine, Period Living, Style Arabia, The Daily Star, and was selected by The Independent (UK) as ‘Top Ten Best Plates.’
Nimerology has been exhibited in galleries across Europe and the Middle East.
