The Interior Design One Year Course (taught in English) pertains to the educational offer of the Design School. It is aimed at those who want to enter the world of the design of interiors and other spaces of varying types and scales, by means of projects and workshops carried out in collaboration with designers and companies in the sector.
During the academic year students acquire the basic foundation necessary to be able to plan and design spaces, understand the relation between user and environment, human and spatial scale, while computer and communication tools, expression and surveying techniques are taught, along with courses of a cultural nature.
Outstanding are the conceptual, expressive and formal projects and exercises, applicable in the design of commercial, leisure, public and private interior spaces, as well as exhibitions, stage design and spatial interventions
The course is structured in three blocks spread over two semesters:
1. Design and creativity Theoretical and practical knowledge of the foundations and references related to design, colour, form, visual and structural languages, perception of space, scale and volume through courses in conception, analysis and creativity such as the Basics of Design, History of Art and Design and Colour.
2. ProjectThroughout the course projects and workshops will be carried out relating to space, the user and the experience, in which knowledge acquired in other subjects comes together. The projects are exercises for greater conceptual, technical and detail development, unlike the workshops, which are more intensive, creative and experimental.
3. CommunicationCommunication is the most important tool for transmitting an idea and explaining a project. It is for this reason that it is so important to teach the tools and certain techniques needed to represent and communicate the design of interiors: drawing, surveying and graphic design among others.
Centuries of shared influences have marked the historical and cultural relations between Italy and Spain
. We can remember the Spanish domination over Milan, lasted almost two centuries, and that in southern Italy. In a way, the decision that Spain would be the first country outside Italy to host IED campuses came quite naturally. In this city, one of the most important in the world and a crossroads of European and Latin American cultures, IED develops its teaching in design in its traditional areas (Design, Fashion, the Visual Arts and Communication), while also implementing innovative areas to train professionals capable of designing interactions, services and systems that put the focus on the individual.
