Lectures and seminars


In collaboration with Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, ENS de Cachan has been organizing since October 2006 a series of lectures on different themes such as : « Le décor est mort, vive le décor ! » (« Decor is dead, long life to decor ! »), « Transmissions » (« Heritages »).

 Moreover, conferences on the products of industrial design are meant to encourage exchanges between experts coming from the artistic and cultural world. Each session is devoted to the exploration and understanding of the genesis of one specific object coming from the collection of Musée des Arts Décoratifs. We also discuss the practical and technical problems of contemporary creations.

Those conferences are broadcast on the French public radio « France Culture » in « Les Sentiers de la Création ».


Design workshops are organized on a regular basis at ENS de Cachan as part of the preparation of the teaching certification. Architects, designers and set designers are invited to participate.
