At this level of study there are no exams or assessments to worry about. No prior technical or software skills are required.
Interior and product design express the quintessential of “Italianness” in design. This engaging short course introduces participants to the Italian creativity applied to product and interior design. They will be introduced to the interior design scene, the elements that make up interior design, and to the trends that emerged during the Milan Design Weeks. Participants will be given foundations in visual culture and will be guided by tutors to create their own interior and product design proposals from research to concept formulation to the final presentation. They will learn how to investigate interior and product design with a focus on the aesthetic experience. The short course includes external visits to design cultural venues allowing participants a full-immersive learning experience in the world capital of design.
At the beginning of the week participants will be introduced to Italian design culture in order to better understand what are the key features that define “Italianness” in interior and product design. Participants will be introduced to basic elements that will allow them to approach a simple design project.
Participants will investigate a living environment and apply spatial principles to create a personal interpretation, choosing the furniture elements as well as the materials, fabrics, and colours to define the ambient mood. As part of this project, participants will have the opportunity to create an individual furniture proposal through the customization of a standard typology.
