Campus MaNa is a professional training center for creators,
in Burgundy on 40 hectares of nature

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 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 Corinne Dutrou and Christian Mameron.

Raphaël Cuir, former Director of Reims Art & Design Academy, is appointed Campus MaNa Managing Director.

Living in the Window, a workshop residence by Jacques Ferrier" 18—29.09.23 discover the project in video:

The “Living in the window” workshop illustrates a creative and free vision that shifts from mere functionality. Today, the window has become a product. It is about achieving a departure from current design and rediscovering a resonance between the building and daily experience: thinking about the window in new ways, in a transversal practice which does not dissociate the gesture from the thought.

After a first week of reflection, conferences and debates, the project took the form of a concept window which explores other possible paths. The workshop ended in style with the manufacturing of a spectacular full-size prototype, created by the six young professionals coming from various backgrounds and registered for this adventure.

The result of this collective work shows all the possibilities that open up when we appropriate the technique and consider the window not as a serial object but as a place, a threshold between the intimate and the landscape which offers multiple ways to experience it on a daily basis.
