Interior Space and Furniture Design Courses

Interior Space and Furniture Design discipline focuses on designing and planning of interior spaces for all kinds of human needs. The learners concentrate on designing spaces – interior and exterior - according to their functional hierarchies and interrelationships. Spaces to be more functional and aesthetic require components like furniture, seating, storage, lighting etc, so only Interior Design alone is not sufficient. The interior space design should be integrated with furniture & accessories, and both should have an harmonious interaction .This makes the built space respond like an efficient, well designed system. This approach imparts the learner a unique edge than merely "interior decoration". Of the many Interior Space and Furniture Design Courses the one at MIT ID emphasizes on the holistic learning.

Courses at each semester include a blend of space design as well as Furniture design (lifestyle products). Courses with technological and skill based inputs like Ergonomics, Architectural drawing, Building technology, Prototype making etc enable the learners to look at space in holistic manner and design the interiors and furniture to enhance its functionality. There is also an extensive exposure to digital methods like AutoCAD, RHINO, Google Sketchup and Solid works. The unique aspect of Interior Space and Furniture Design programs at MIT ID as compared to other Interior Space and Furniture Design Courses is the strong foundation that the learners go through.

Scope

The education at MIT ID has been founded on a philosophy & way learning that can be best described as generalist. All learners spend all their years getting "indoctrinated" with this particular way of learning that they may be later encouraged to select their specialized fields of work.
Taking this thought ahead a passing out graduate of ISED at MITID can choose his area of specialization as a space or a furniture designer.
A learner concentrates on designing interior spaces according to their functional hierarchies and interrelationships.
A learner understands that the user is given the utmost priority & the overall space along with the furniture system satisfies the requirements in all possible ways.
A learner is capable of proposing a space treatment that emphasizes the desired special experience.
A learner is sensitive towards appropriate use of material & exploring it to its maximum capacity.
