Our programme is open to all students who want to experiment with new solutions for contemporary and stylish interior design. The idea is based on improving psychophysical well-being, with full attention to the emotions and needs of everyone involved.
The Interior Design degree programme at IED Torino is for students who want to bring the idea of ‘feeling at home’ outside the boundaries of home. The new concept is about reshaping the interior space to provide a feeling of comfort and safeness, based on careful and accurate project design process.
You will soon find out that career prospects are extremely varied and not just restricted to that of Interior Designer.
One of the main reasons to go for our Interior Design degree programme in Turin is the city itself. Here you can enjoy a long-standing tradition in all fields of design, with inspiration from the work of some great interior designers such as Carlo Mollino.
This programme is designed for anyone who is looking for a new direction: not just recent graduates, but also professionals with a strong passion for design and, more specifically, for interior design applications.
With an emphasis on market trends and new materials, this programme is based on just a few key concepts. Culture, because project design means taking ideas from the past and reworking them into a modern form. A focus on research, as a way to better understand how things change and provide appropriate solutions. Cooperation, because this is the kind of mindset that all project designers should have among their soft skills set. Materials knowledge, which means using materials with awareness of how they can work together to expand the sense of space - from colours to textures, everything should work in synergy.
This three-year programme is based on a process that provides a step by step exploration of project design, with a combination of theory and practical experience.
Imagine and represent - On the first year, you will be introduced to general cultural knowledge and the basic tools needed to approach the whole design process. Activities will be based mainly on practice as a combination of creativity, research, and technique, with a special focus on personal identity.
