In 2011, the 27th Region, a long-standing client of the agency, contacted us to entrust us with a very unusual assignment for designers: to design the Champagne-Ardenne Region's innovation lab, a task never before undertaken in France. Intrigued and motivated by our past experiences in regional innovation, notably in Orléans with Lyonnaise des Eaux, we took the plunge. After ten weeks of on-site work, hundreds of hours of creative workshops, analysis of the area, sensitisation to design approaches and logo design, the lab was born.

- 22%+ increase in service use
- 96 approved cultural partners
In order to design its new public policies, the Champagne-Ardenne Region wanted to draw greater inspiration from citizens’ needs and uses so they set up a large ecosystem: elected officials, agents and directors of the Regional Council's operational departments, CESER \[Economic, Social and Environmental Council], associations that are members of the CRAJEP \[Regional Committee of Youth and Popular Education Associations], high schools, cultural facilities.
