The cradle of design and industry.

At the heart of a metropolitan area that bears comparison with London and New York, Milan is for the whole world a synonym for art, industry, finance, design and fashion.

Artists of the calibre of Leonardo and Bramante worked in Milan, and four centuries later, Marinetti and Boccioni, founders of the Futurist Movement.

More recently, celebrated architects and designers, such as the Castiglioni brothers, Magistretti and Zanuso, and fashion designers
like Armani and Versace, to name just a few, made Milan the world centre of fashion and design.

Art, science, industry and finance are the cultures at the root of this city pragmatism and of its creative and entrepreneurial spirit.

It is no coincidence that our school was born in Milan, drawing the inspiration for its teaching methods from the know-how, the thinking and the innovation so typical of Milan hinterland and its history.

Designing both goods and services for industry and with industry is the vocation of IED Milan, where design in all its ramifications is taught and practised.

The founder and President of IED - Istituto Europeo di Design passed away last night

“I would like to pass on an IED that places at the heart of its reflections the students. The students who are the true driving force of our work. Young talents to support while they navigate within a galaxy of opportunities, not only within their local communities but in the whole world”
OCTOBER, 26TH 2017
