IED Design is the school’s concrete and complete response to the countless and diversified requirements of the professional design community. These days, design is a crucial constituent in every area of production, contributing contents, lexica, codes of expression and of form and technical and functional aspects. Street furnishings, fashion accessories, automobiles and IT hardware are just some of the fields where appreciation of the value of design has shot up in recent years. The designer is by definition an innovator of forms and functions, an interpreter and at the same time a precursor of emerging aesthetic lines and of contemporary functional requirements. The courses at IED Design are tailored to develop these gifts, while at the same time favouring the acquisition of extensive technical and design skills in the course of workshops and numerous active partnerships with leading industrial concerns.
