The School strives to provide an education that engages with society and the world.
  • Haviland Workshop EnsAD
  • Maison Martin Margiela EnsAD
  • AOS Studley-Vitra EnsAD



In this respect, the partnerships are unique opportunities for initiating intelligent, pragmatic, and creative dialogue between professionals and students, so that they can develop together, enriching each other's points of view, and renewing forms of creation.

The goal of creating partnerships with businesses is to enrich the training offered by the School. Partnerships enable students to create ties with professionals, to discover the reality of their future profession, and to become aware of the economic and societal issues involved in Design and Innovation.

For businesses, partnerships allow for exchanges with new generations of designers, as well as provide access to a veritable laboratory of ideas.

Original and innovative projects arise from these synergies. Some examples are shown below.

The Haviland workshop
The 3rd-year students of the Product Design department, under the supervision of the designer Guillaume Bardet, worked with porcelain and discovered the various issues involved in creation and production for a specialized company such as Haviland.
The platform created by the École des Arts Déco and Haviland acted as a breeding ground for ideas seeking to create contemporary forms that may become the classics of tomorrow.
Instructors and experts: Guillaume Bardet, designer and director of the Haviland workshops.

This project was developed within the framework of the "Innovation & Expertise" program supported by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation.

Maison Martin Margiela
In a fashion collection spirit, the 3rd-year students from the Textile & Texture Design department paired up with students from the Fashion Design department to invent textiles (prints, meshes, weaves) and textures around a theme illustrating their personal vision of the Maison Martin Margiela.

The workshop began by looking for and choosing a type of textile used long ago. Next came the production of a research booklet on the sample chosen (date, origin, presumed applications, techniques used, drawing, inspiration).

Instructors and experts: Maison Martin Margiela

Educational coordination: Roland Schär, coordinator of the Textile and Texture Design department, along with instructors from the Textile & Texture Design and Fashion Design departments.

This project was developed within the framework of the "Innovation & Expertise" program supported by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation.

AOS Studley - Vitra
AOS Studley, Vitra, and the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs launched a call for ideas from students of the Product Design department to design a "transitional object" that will become essential to employees in their work environment.
To assess the proposals from the 20 students selected, AOS Studley and Vitra created a jury composed of key figures in industry and design. All the participants received funding for the model workshop from AOS Studley. The three winners were invited by Vitra to the prestigious Domaine de Boisbuchet to participate in a workshop.
Each partnership is unique. Please feel free to contact us so that we can work with you to develop a project that matches your objectives.
