In October 2021 twelve Master students from the Parisian Design school ENSCI - Les Ateliers visited the Forbo Sarlino site in Reims for their project kick-off.
During ten weeks French designers Pauline Esparon and Océane Delain guided them in their search for new applications of Furniture linoleum with a focus on the contemporary working environment.
With the support of Pauline and Océane, the students discovered new qualities and properties of Furniture linoleum that enabled them to present a wide range of beautiful projects.

Beyond the traditional
ENSCI, the French national institute for advanced studies in industrial design, is providing master and research-level studies. "Les Ateliers" is the school’s nickname that represents the space rather than the institution, an 11,000 sqm loft space in central Paris, previously made up of specialist crafts workshops.
“Les Ateliers” echoes the traditional values of skill exchange and complementarity necessary for project teamwork, in both creative making and creative thinking. In its educational system, the school breaks with the academic model by placing creation at the heart of the industrial design process.
