Product Design Laboratory

The course that is structured in two semesters, offers basic training to acquire the necessary skills and take the first steps into the design practice. Activities taking place during the first term aim at defining the domain of design together with a common operational methodology, to be enhanced by means of a number of exercises of increasing complexity. Thanks to both a theoretical and a practical methodology promoting experimentation and confrontation with different design philosophies, students are offered the chance to consciously choose a peculiar methodology that could be applied to product and interior design. At a theoretical level, the most important emphasis is on the projects of the greatest designers and interior architects boasting strong emotional qualities. During the second term attention will be drawn on product design. On the basis of this open and experimental approach, the course will combine different disciplines such as analysis and morphology of design, the study of materials, colours and perceptive values, usability principles. Communication techniques will be dealt with through the constant assessment of projects. The programme requires a strong commitment from students that are asked to carry out complete designs thanks to a daily practice and in accordance with all the sujects in the plan of studies.
