April 16-20, 2012 / July 16-27, 2012
Inside Design is an opportunity to take a tour of the world of Italian design; to study design precedents and develop an interior design project.
Students will be guided in investigating a famous Florentine fashion griffe, starting from the analysis of its products,to it's translation in philosophy and features into a space reflecting its particular atmosphere.
The course includes lectures, visits, critiques and studio time to work on a project. Visits include museums, design show rooms, architectural offices. Hosting specific guests will introduce students to the complexities of developing interior spaces as well as an introduction to Italian design culture. Working on their projects, participants will express their own creativity through sketches, drawings and maquettes all while focusing on materials, surfaces, volumes, light and colors.
