FABSchool (FABécole) is the fruit of a meeting of the know-how of companies in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, the Cité du design-Esadse materials library and the creativity of 3rd year students in the Objects stream of the design course at Esadse (Saint-Étienne Higher School of Art and Design).
This crossover experience allows students to develop projects alongside specialists and to gain a first experience of the professional world.
As for the companies, they get to discover and explore new ideas that could lead to the design of new products. The output from these meetings and workshops, which take place throughout the year, take the form of a series of objects imagined by the students, made by the companies and representative of their know-how.
For this first public exhibition of their work, over thirty projects will be on display from textile, ceramics, plastics, paint companies and many others.
