Structure and methodology: The first part of the course will allow you to understand the Italian design system, focusing mainly on furniture design. At the same time you will acquire the tools and the methods necessary to analyze a specific collection of a specific brand, through the use of colors, materials and finishings.
The course is structured around the major international trade shows including Salone del Mobile furniture show in Milan and the Design Week, Salone Satellite, Euroluce, International Bathroom Exhibition and the International Home Furnishings Expo.
