In the last years the field of Interior Design has witnessed a continuous growth, for this reason professionals in the field need to be more flexible and in touch with the new technologies, methods, and materials. Through the Interior Design Academic year program students get an in-depth and practical introduction to Italian design and the ‘Made in Italy’ concept with particular attention to contemporary trends, while being equipped with all the necessary instruments to enter this field. Students will learn to design interior spaces both for commercial and residential use, from the initial concept and first sketch to the 3D view, and to realize a model representing a public space. Furthermore the course develops students awareness of colour, shape and form and gives them the necessary skills to choose interior finishes. The program is structured around the major international trade shows in Italy which provide insight on the latest contemporary trends and become starting point for a broader debate on design and its current language: formal and expressive. -
