2 Academic Year
Interior design today represents a complex cultural system and requires a broad set of professional skills.
The Master’s course promotes creative thinking along with sound design abilities according to an architectural orientation.
The Master of Interior Design covers concepts such as space design and planning, interior composition and layout. The course program pursues study of the language of materials, lighting, color, furniture and technical components. Each of these aspects contributes to a solid and highly professionalizing preparation.
Students in the Master of Interior Design course work with companies, studios and institutions enabling them to learn how an environment is able to communicate brand values through the use of architectural, graphic and spatial elements.
The course encourages students to develop a conceptual approach and provides a strategic understanding of creative processes. Attention to detail allows students to refine their ideas and hone their professional skills.
Our students participate in a course whose goal is to prepare them in the most comprehensive way, providing them with a testing ground to express skills from concept to execution.
The faculty supervises students individually; designers, professional figures from different fields and visiting professors are at your disposal throughout the academic year.
Teaching sessions vary between intensive workshops, studio classes, lectures, seminars and external visits. We also involve you in research initiatives carried out together with brands such as Volkswagen, Beiersdorf, PepsiCo, Poltrona Frau Group, Fritz Hansen, Marazzi and Alias.
Students must hold a bachelor’s or higher academic degree in Architecture, Interior Design or Product Design or other disciplines from any program recognized at ISCED level 6, as well as candidates who have previously gained significant professional experience in the field. SPD also takes into consideration other significant experiences and/or participation in SPD Preparatory Courses.
