The purpose of the short course is to develop students' knowledge and skills related to all aspects of furniture design from design, to development to production of prototypes. During the 4 week program, students study presentations of materials, history, theories, and detailing of Italian and International furniture.
The short course teaches furniture design skills together with a general overview of furniture history. The program is designed for students with a strong interest in Italian furniture design, interior design and industrial design. This course is excellent for students of all levels. People with a general interest in Furniture Design, but have no immediate plans to pursue a degree are also encouraged to enroll.
We also combine the Furniture Design courses with Italian language for 3hrs per week – a chance to build confidence and understanding of one of the most beautiful languages in the world. A development of knowledge of the language can help you to enjoy the culture and customs of Florence and Italy even more.
