Campus MANA will be inaugurated on
April 7th, 2023
in Burgundy with a customized programming curated especially for the occasion that characterizes the birth of a unique and one in its kind place, having the ambition to turn into the favorite destination for French and the International Creators of today and tomorrow.
Designer Wolfgang Kaeppner (studio Wokrea) has created a special alphabet for Campus MANA that echoes our Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Color workshops that give the tempo to the Campus. The designer pays a tribute to Lavoisier, father of the modern chemistry. A free and inspiring graphic language that we love.
We are glad to announce the appointment of Marc Partouche, former General Director of Paris Decoratrice Arts Academy, as the Dean of Campus MaNa.

We are proud to introduce our collaboration with La Métairie Bruyère, an incredible place where you can discover the craftsmanship of the printed image. The site brings together a range of workshops, from manual typography to through intaglio, lithography, digigraphy and engraving. This complementarity of crafts makes it a unique place of creation in Europe.
A highlight is the exceptional collection of several tons of lead characters of all sizes, made available to artists.
Each workshop has a smell, the ink is fresh, the paper thick. . . The old presses still in operation are real museum pieces.
La Métairie Bruyère is a top choice for many large luxury houses as well as international artists, gallery owners and publishers. The studio is directed by the editor Sebastien Esteban Desplat.
Raphaël Cuir, former Director of Reims Art & Design Academy, is appointed Campus MaNa Managing Director.
Designers Thomas Dariel and Erwan Bouroullec have Burgundy and the desire to pass on their passion for design in common. With Campus MaNa, Thomas Dariel has transformed a veterinary school into a professional training center dedicated to design. With La Grange, Erwan Bouroullec has given a new lease of life to an old farm building, hosting workshops in the process. These two projects are rooted in the heart of the region, giving a new meaning to creation.
