The course aims to develop and consolidate skills in designing interiors in an architectural context and not only in choosing and arranging furniture and furnishings. The goal of the course is to instil a sensibility and attention towards the communicative value and ergonomic efficiency of interiors.
Studying graphical representation techniques through 2D and 3D technical drawing is an indispensable skill for completing the final design of a project. the module begins with geometrical drawing and continues with the theory and practical exercises on the main plane projection systems (projection, axonometry, perspective).
Students investigate the design of the areas making up a private home (kitchen, bathroom, lounge etc.) and analyse their main features. Particular attention is focussed on the organisation and functional characteristics of working environments, exhibition areas, public spaces and commercial premises.
In this module the student learns the practical design techniques, how to check the process or organisation, assessment and management of the implementation of a project from the economic, administrative and bureaucratic standpoint.
Main systems and their problems
This module illustrates the general criteria underlying the main systems (water, heating, wiring, etc.) and the lighting concepts that will ensure maximum integration between furnished space and illuminated space.
Materials and Complementary Furnishings
These lessons are dedicated to studying natural and man-made materials to be used (for floors, coverings, etc.) and learning the aesthetic and functional features determining the choice of furniture an furnishings.
Marketing and Enterprise
The studies of marketing and management complete the training in methodology and skills that make up this professional figure.
The module dedicated to studying the history of furniture and design complete this course.
The role of the INTERIOR DESIGNER is to design rooms and indoor areas in terms of their and/or decoration. The indoor areas within his working radius include the home and work environments as well as hotels and conference centres. A major source of work for these professional figures lies in commercial premises, such as shops, show rooms and stands at trade fairs: situations requiring the interior designer to exploit all his/her technical and stylistic know-how to meet the needs for companies institutional and product communications.
The interior designer can also design furniture, furnishings and other related items and accessories.
The know-how acquired during the course will assure students a successful career in the working world, either as free lance professionals, for those endowed with a spirit of enterprise and initiative, or in the furniture and furnishings sector, for example in show rooms and in the offices and studios of specialised firms operating in this sector.
