Welcome to the design lab city where you can try your hand at sitting, but not only that!
The urban furniture in Sainté is tested in its life-size form to discover what’s special about each bench: “Le Parcours des chaises”, “Mâtuvu”, “Cubes Gigogne”, “Parcours des étoiles”, “LLPGM” which, if you were wondering, stands for “The smallest terraces in the world” installed in front of La Comète… intriguing, no? Our urban wastelands are becoming new playgrounds and walking areas and many other designer creations are nestled everywhere. Come on, we’ll give you 2 or 3 of them just as an appetiser: musical banisters that revisit the handrail, the creation of a natural space in the heart of the city featuring a belvedere walk and bearing the sweet name of “Garden of possibilities, a walk along the edge of the earth”, the illumination of the arches of the Montaud viaduct in Carnot, even cool shops that play the design game and challenge each other in a competition. That’s what Saint-Étienne’s design in the urban space is all about: it’s innovative, participatory and, what’s more, it brings people together!
