Course aim

This part of our design school in Florence brings the students into direct contact with the reality of interior design. The students will partecipate in a real project within our firm. Infact we start from the clients' requests and we try to understand what they really want and we attempt to discover their true identity. The reason for this is that we need to create a universe in a given space ( residential or store or exhibition). In order to fully understand the fragmented desires and needs ( both ours and the client's) we must dedicate time to talk about them, in the office and on site.
When we feel that we have gained an intimate knowledge of the clients and the spirit of the place ( Genius Loci) through the filter of our personality we can begin to elaborate the three factors of composition:
a) Construction; b) Function; c) Beauty, which must be united in the final project.
