It is an educational course that aims to emphasise the unitary character of the human environment and therefore of the instruments and skills required to ensure its care and increase its quality. Educational Objectives The objectives pursued in the Habitat Design course are: to guarantee to students the attainment of critical maturity, an understanding of the problems connected to transformational intervention on the living environment and methods for their most suitable solution; to provide students with technical knowledge and educational experiences in the fields of construction and production – artisan and industrial – for a speedy and satisfying start to their professional activities; to ensure graduates possess a secure planning method that encompasses creativity and rigour, both supported by an adequate grasp of the techniques of representation, both manual and computer-assisted, through the most advanced software available in 2 and 3D design and virtual modelling; to form characters who are expert in multiple and complementary techniques, all unified by method, guaranteeing, at the same time, a flexible planning attitude that allows the young professional to deal with the challenges arising from rapid social mutations and not just existing ones.

The graduate in Habitat Design can draft plans and manage works for projects that do not require authorisation, that is, other than the abovementioned fittings of very sort: sets, exhibitions, temporary structures, gardens and open spaces, as well as designing objects of all kinds, including those that will be mass produced, by artisan or industrial structures. This is an extremely vast and varied operative field, that can allow unsuspected talents to emerge and also create professional opportunities in promising but largely unexplored sectors.

With these pragmatic objectives that aim at the acquisition, in a set time, of a solid professionalism, this course takes the form of a valid alternative to more theoretical studies.

BA in Interior Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Florence
Campus Full time 3 years October 2017 Italy Florence

The Interior Designer applies design skills to a variety of fields: staring from the domestic setting, these ultimately take in private and community residential spaces, public spaces (airports, ports and stations), public service venues (banks, post offices, hospitals, schools, museum interiors and installations), commercial and hospitality venues (shops, bars and hotels) and lastly open spaces (squares, courtyards and playgrounds). [+]

Best Bachelors in Design in Italy 2017. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ITALIAN Interior design is an articulated system in which the process of designing spaces interacts with those of designing lighting, materials, colours and furnishings. Every interior designer has to come to terms with the topics of designing hospitality, wellness and commercial interiors, of designing lighting and of designing furnishings, all sectors that derive major impulses from changing human behavioural patterns and environmental issues. During the first year, students acquire familiarity with the tools they need to perceive object’s morphology and generate a design: the preliminary phase on paper, a check by computer and then the 3D check, using a mock-up. This is also when they learn about the historical context behind design work, how to take a cross-disciplinary approach to the fields of art, fashion, communication, design and architecture. In the area of technology, they come into contact with both natural and artificial materials, with development processes and with the perception of materials’ surfaces. The second year is devoted to developing on the instrumental, cultural and technical themes first studied in the first year. At this stage, students are also introduced to further fields of investigation and knowledge, so as to extend and complete their individual skills. They now apply the methods they have learned to creating design projects for areas related to industrial products and to systems of spaces and services, in both private and social contexts, conducting creative experiments in all the fields where designers work. In the third year, students tackle increasingly complex cultural topics and learn how to use the latest tools for elaborating and communicating their projects. The actual design work now occupies the lion’s share of their studies, as they learn to manage the development of a project completely independently. Students are now stimulated to learn how to work independently, make coherent, well-reasoned decisions, relate to their clients and bear the weight of clear responsibilities. This course is organised in partnership with Giulio Tanini (www.tanini.it) and ex.t (www.ex-t.it). [-]

Such market segments are receiving more attention because of behavioral changes and environmental issues. During the first year, the student acquires the necessary tools to perceive the shape of the objects, and to create a project: from blueprints, to testing through pc, to the 3-D check through the prototype. In addition, the student acquires the historical knowledge about design, tackling the various fields of art, fashion, communication, product design, and architecture. He’s exposed to different materials, both natural and artificial, and familiarizes with their properties and various work processes. The second year is aimed at deepening the instrumental, cultural, and technical topics acquired during the first year.
