Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne

Since January 2010, the Cité du Design, Etablissement Public de Coopération Culturelle (EPCC - Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation) and the École Supérieure d'Art et Design (Graduate School of Art and Design) have been located together on the same site.

Supported by the City of Saint-Étienne, Saint-Étienne Métropole (Saint-Étienne urban community), the Rhône-Alpes region and the French State (Ministry for Culture), the Cité
du Design is a hub for higher education, research, economic development and the promotion of design and art, which is open to all.

Highly-receptive to the Product Innovation initiative, in 2009, Reltex illustrated the impact that design had on its development. The company was selected by the Cité du Design to take part in the "When Design Embraces Business" project.

LACTAE HEVEA® soles were showcased at the 2013 International Biennial of Design.

In 2014, Reltex showed its desire to contribute to Saint-Etienne's Cité du
Design by becoming a fully-fledged Partner
