Interior & Product Design
Design interiors for luxury homes, and create innovative products for luxury living.
This dynamic short course introduces participants to both exciting areas of the design industry: interior and product design.
Via a fun, and engaging series of lessons, participants will be guided to create their own basic interior and product designs, understanding the key design process from research to concept formulation. This short course includes external visits to design cultural venues allowing participants a full-immersive learning experience in the world capital of design.
Interior and product design express the quintessential of ‘Italianness’.
At the beginning of the week participants will be introduced to the Italian design culture in order to better understand what are the key features that define it within the industry. With this in mind they will be introduced to the interior design scene, the key elements that make up product design, and also to the key trends that emerge during the industry renowned Milan ‘Design Weeks’ trade fairs.
Moving on through the week participants will be shown how to approach a simple design project with a focus on aesthetics, and the design of ‘well-being’. They investigate a living environment and apply design principles to create their own personal interpretation of a space, choosing the furniture elements as well as the materials, fabrics, and colours to define the ambient mood.
As part of this experience into both the worlds of interiors and products, participants have the opportunity to put together a basic design proposal, concluding a fun introduction to the world of design, and to the Italian influence on creativity and style in the industry.
