  • Sowen was tasked with creating a light, dynamic space for the Unowhy offices in Paris, France.

    Unowhy, the French leader in digital education, has opened the first campus dedicated to the future of education in Neuilly-sur-Seine (Paris area). Sowen was in charge of fitting out these premises. On 5500m2, Sowen created an experiential and immersive place, with a wide variety of uses, which projects visitors and employees into the world of tomorrow education.

    The Campus is a real ecosystem, which houses in the same place different activities around the future of Education. Unowhy asked Sowen to design a range of functional and didactic spaces to accommodate different audiences: The Academy for teachers, the Factory to assemble digital tablets, studios of the new SQOOL TV channel, New Classrooms to experiment with new digital tools, The Incubator for young EdTech start-ups, and work, collaboration and conviviality spaces for Unowhy employees.

    The Unowhy Campus is today the beating heart of a dynamic community made up of 200 Unowhy employees, dozens of teachers who come to train every day, primary, middle and high school students who visit the New Classrooms, or even journalists and guests of the new SQOOL TV channel.

    Unowhy’s wish is to give everyone the desire to adopt the new usages of tomorrow School. Sowen has created an experiential and digital place, thanks to immersive tunnels, visit routes adapted to each audience, an operational control center, nods to the history of Education, lighting games.

    Thanks to these innovative facilities, Unowhy intends to attract and retain the most coveted talents by relying on an attractive work environment. Thus, the Agora was imagined as a place of exchange with an inspiring design, a real lair of moments of conviviality between members of the community.
