LISAA School of Design is a Grande Ecole on a human scale. Founded in 1986 by Michel Glize, today LISAA is a reference in the world of applied arts education.
Having studied architecture, Michel Glize wanted to create a workshop for students preparing for the competitive exams for entry into the Grande Ecole art schools. As such, he established the Atelier de Sèvres in 1979. In the wake of this success, he went on to found LISAA, originally offering courses in spatial design and fashion design. At this time, there were only four schools in Paris offering design courses.
LISAA rapidly became a reference in the field. With teaching oriented towards new technology, a stable team of teaching staff and a particular attention paid to the professional insertion of students, the school grew quickly, attracting recognized professionals (with personalities such as Sonia Rykiel participating as judges in viva examinations) and new branches being founded outside of Paris: “LISAA opened schools in Paris, Rennes, Nantes and Strasbourg and recently in New Delhi and Bangalore in India. At the heart of small workshops on a human scale, in schools in the city centre, students acquire the knowledge and techniques that allow them to integrate the professional world.”
Today LISAA is an institution, recognized not only in the professional milieu but also by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. With 2200+ students, spread over nine different sites in France and India, LISAA is one of the biggest French design schools. Its international network constitutes a reference for businesses. More than 200 work placement and job offers go online every month.
