The Spring Italian Contemporary Design and Trends semester program is designed to offer participants a practical study of Italian design, revolving around a number of shows and fairs that exhibit the best of the Italian design system: the Salone del Mobile furniture show in Milan and the Design Week that follows; the Salone Satellite, Euroluce, International Bathroom Exhibition and the International Home Furnishings Expo.
Throughout the semester, students will be engaged in developing technical and critical skills in the classroom and inside the main trade fairs that highlight the Italian design experience.
Schedule: Lessons run from Monday to Friday, full time
Target: This course is intended for motivated students and professionals interested in understanding the Italian design system and the trends research methods. A basic knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator commands is requested.
The first part of the course will allow participants to understand the Italian design system, focusing mainly on furniture design. At the same time students will acquire the instruments and the methods to be used to analyze a specific collection of a specific brand; the analysis will be related with formal language, use of colors, materials and finishings.
Thanks to the basic knowledge acquired at the beginning of the course, students will be able to do an analytical experience on field during the Milano Design week and individuate the main trends in the furniture design filed. This will be the starting point to work on a proposal for a new collection for a “made in Italy” brand.
During the course the participants will learn how to use the graphic instruments so to be able to express the new ideas for the brand and in order to organize a professional presentation for the client.
