    Palissade Chaillot

    “Our mission as a School is clear: training students, not so they may ease their way into the world, but so they may transform it.” Emmanuel Tibloux, Director

    Through its numerous partnerships, the School strives to be the place where the current generations ask the future ones questions that yet remain to be answered. 

      Enriching the Training

      The École des Arts Décoratifs offers a career-oriented education, as it fosters relationships and interactions with socioeconomic and cultural actors. Partnerships are valuable opportunities for students to forge ties with them, to face the reality of the professional world and to become aware of the economic and social issues raised by creation and particularly by art and design, in both their empirical and prospective dimensions. For our partners, working with the École des Arts Décoratifs means exchanging ideas with the new generations of creators and having access to a true laboratory of ideas and of practices, at the crossroads of lifestyles, new uses and imaginary worlds. 

      Academic Partners

      The École des Arts Décoratifs works with a network of European and international institutions (universities and schools), which are established on every continent.

      Chairs stem from the encounter between an organization’s innovation ambitions and the École des Arts Décoratifs’s scientific and educational expertise. Together, they define a theme to be explored. That collaboration enables a range of education, research, production and development initiatives to be carried out over a minimum period of three years, in order to find forward-looking answers and formal solutions.
