In the heart of France's only UNESCO Creative City of design, the teams at the Cité du design and the Saint-Étienne Higher School of Art and Design (Esadse) are working towards all audiences to anchor design at the heart of our society and help us face the challenges of the 21st century.
CITÉ DU DESIGN
What if we transformed the world?
Design is a powerful driving force of transformation: it improves our uses, our lifestyles and our ways of working. The Cité du design has made Saint-Étienne the leading design centre in France and the only French city to be designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Design, with its international design biennial, exhibitions, art and design school and support for businesses.
HIGHER SCHOOL OF ART AND DESIGN
What if you chose the Esadse?
Saint-Étienne Higher School of Art and Design trains the artists and designers of tomorrow. Its pioneering position, the quality of its teaching and its workshops make it one of the best creative schools in France. At the heart of the Cité du design creative district, it relies on this unique ecosystem to build both its territorial anchorage and its international influence.
CABANE DU DESIGN (THE DESIGN HUT)
What if you were a designer?
The Cabane du design is not a place like any other. It is a place open to everyone, free of charge, where children can slip into the shoes of a designer to enjoy a fun and interactive experience with designers.
