Overview

Context 

The global market has a growing demand for eclectic interior designers with competences both in the architectural composition of a space and in the design of services, to organize and improve the relation between space and people.

Methodology and structure

The student acquires a broad range of competences: cultural, technical and project based. Cultural elements connected to design, architecture and art but also sociology and anthropology are all subjects of study, necessary to comprehend the evolutionary phenomena of behaviour. 

Students from the Interior Design - IED Milan course at Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED)  are introduced to marketing, an essential tool for analysing brand values and market positioning of the companies the interior designer collaborates with. They gain their own solid project development method that, starting from ethical, social and sustainable values, allow them to acquire a mindset for strategic design. Once the design mindset has been defined, an accurate definition of spaces highlighting of psychological and physical wellbeing is developed through a careful use of materials, colours and lights.

To this end, the Designer must possess those expressive tools allowing to develop, assess and explain the project: the pencil, 3-D modelling and rendering software.
