Course in Interior and Showroom Design
Summer and Winter Courses - Milan
- Attendance: Full-time
- Language: English
The course introduces the Italian design industry and current trends in interior design in order to enable you to develop the necessary skills to produce layouts for high-level showrooms and shops with an essential expressive value.
During the course, you examine and analyse Italian interior and commercial spaces. “Interior” refers to key spaces for improving everyday living: places to eat, shop, and read and other public spaces.
You will also increase coherence and fluency in expressing ideas, pursuing a narrative yet analytical approach to your work and will get a better understanding on how to structure and develop a project following the Italian methodology - brief, concept, design, communication - being able to select the right tools and apply them.
Schedule: From Monday to Thursday during the first two weeks and from Monday to Friday during the 3rd week, on a full time basis (morning and afternoon) the course has a duration of 75 hours spread over 3 weeks
Target: The course is designed for qualified applicants, such as students who are attending the final years of University studies in Architecture, Interior Design and Industrial Design, or newly graduated, and young professionals interested in enriching their personal knowledge and understanding of the field.
Applicants need to have mastered representation technique skills such as drawing, sketching and rendering visual communication skills such as computer graphics and rendering, as well as model making and verbal communication skills.
Applicants need to show strong motivation and the ability to work in groups.
Methodology and structure - During the course you acquire theoretical and practical awarness of Italian interiors and commercial spaces, and you take knowledge of the latest trends of Italian design.
The synergy between lectures and practical training, both of which are supported by workshops and visits
to relevant showrooms, shops, and exhibitions, allow you to benefit of a 360° vision of Italian - in particular Milanese - reality and design methodology.
Site visits are an integral part of the program’s learning experience and are designed to complement what is acquired in the classroom as well as serve as an on-going orientation to the field.
The nexus between knowledge and knowhow is the indispensable starting point for developing the cultural, creative and critical skills and competencies that are the ultimate goal of education at the IED.
