The Pathway in Contract Design is more focused on strategies and steps involved in the planning of public spaces on a large scale, and interiors such as Hotellerie, residential complexes, museum and theatre spaces.

The aesthetic approach is a prerogative of those interested in a career in the Contract Design field: this type of interiors reflect contemporary society and the ongoing search for “beauty”, comfort, and well being which translates in aesthetic codes and trends, all culminating in a precise and strategic selection of upholstery fabrics, as well as in the chromatic and stylistic choices.

The search and experimentation of new technologies are essential part of the course, such as lighting design, home automation, applied digital resources, and design solutions for contract companies.

Regardless of the chosen pathway, participants acquire a mangerial ability to relate between the company and the client needs, as to manage all aspects of an interior design project; they will also experience working closely with partners companies within the assigned projects, learning how to relate with the professional reality.
