About Instituto Marangoni
Istituto Marangoni is the international fashion school par excellence, with four Schools in the most prestigious venues of international fashion. In Milan, the capital of Made in Italy, in Florence, where fashion, art and tradition meet, in Paris, the home of haute couture, in London, where trends are born and in Shanghai, where fashion is the future, Istituto Marangoni is able to offer different visions of the contemporary fashion system to its students. Istituto Marangoni is a school where the passion for fashion unites cultures, ideas and people from all over the world. Entering Istituto Marangoni means being part of a very special community, where fashion is the common denominator in all its most cosmopolitan aspects. The four sites of Istituto Marangoni are truly one of the most international student contexts in the world, with more than 4,000 students from 106 countries, each with infinite interests, styles, and knowledge. Attending this school is an experience of being immersed in fashion, learning and being enriched through contact with the most varied and interesting cultural realities. The new School of Art brings together, in one prestigious site, all the disciplines taught by Istituto Marangoni. The school is located in a historical building in via de’ Tornabuoni 17, in the core of the city, just a few steps away from Piazza S.Trinità and the museums of Gucci and Ferragamo. In addition to a range of long and short courses in fashion and design, the new Firenze school provides an intense programme of studies dedicated to art and encompassing History of Art, Art ‘Management’ and Visual Multimedia Art. The Florentine school is on the one hand characterised by the support of professors who are both professionals and highly specialized technicians in the ‘art of making’, and on the other by collaboration with an important French institution in the field of art teaching, the renowned Atelier de Sèvres (for Art courses). This completes the school’s innovative and prestigious profile.
Planning an interior space means creating a story of styles, moods, color and light, reflecting contemporary lifestyle living, or interpreting a theme from a given design brief.
For those with limited time available, this course provides the technical and theoretical concepts related to interior spaces, looking at the methodologies in developing a concept, and the applicable representation techniques of an interior design project. Participants begin looking at various interior styles for domestic space, including the impact of furnishings, materials and fabrics, patterns, colors and shades, progressing onto more complex projects in commercial retail, and leisure spaces (e.g. restaurants, bars, and leisure clubs).
They understand how to introduce the concept and vision of a luxury brand in their designs and analyze various design trends, different furniture styles and the concepts of scale and proportion. With an introduction to technical drawing skills (CAD) and freehand sketching techniques participants are able to demonstrate perspective in design proposals, and prepare project layouts. They learn how to evaluate and prepare interior color charts and manage their own sketchbook of research and mood boards. As well as key design skills, successful interior designers respond to the ‘identity’ of a space. They work toward producing ‘sensations’, taking on-board demands of physical wellbeing and performance needs of the space in question.
