IED in Kiev

Istituto Europeo di Design has always tried to empower talent throughout its widespread range of activities. Once again IED will be hosted by Interior Mebel and by IZONE helping to work on a common goal of involving society in creative process and nurturing a community of talented individuals that work in the cross-disciplinary field, who are eager to elaborate their ideas and bring them to life.

Andrea Tosi, Dean of International Partnership and Innovation,will run a special masterclass for Ukrainian students of Visual Arts, Fashion, Design, and Communication as well as young professionals in a design field. Moreover, students of Business and Engineering majors are also invited since we will talk about commercial and innovative parts of design process.
The masterclass’ topic will be Entrepreneurship through design as new perspective of design education “Made in Italy”: learning by starting creative ventures.
Italian Design is deeply rooted in entrepreneurialism, especially within production and marketing, other than technical and aesthetic formalism. Design Education in Italy remains consistent with the Italian way to do business through design.
