About the Workshop

This furniture design workshop focuses on understanding the different design genres, that are essential in relating the product to the proper context. Since we can characterize design ages through specific uses of languages, the global macro-trends become landmarks to understand the new creations for our spaces, furniture and accessories: the upcoming scenarios have a strong and deep relation with the object feeling, perception and emotional involvement. Students will see new trends in furniture and interior design, with a practical outcome that will help them develop a personal design language conforming to a specific design typology.

During the session they will be led through the right use of materials and technologies, defining a deep relation between the product, the environment and the cultural behavior. The final project will consist of a new furniture piece for interior use.

English / 320 JOD regular fee. 260 JOD early registration available until 31 July, 2016.
