The programme focuses on interior design, more specifically on utilization
of textiles in interiors, and reflects current trends in architecture, housing,
as well as in graphic expression. Our students engage in generating
overall interior design concepts and creating textile designs, primarily
printed textiles. They also create 2D and 3D designs, taking a traditional
or experimental approach to textiles.
Interior design students will master drawing skills, understand principles
of composition, stylization and acquire a sense of detail, while becoming
familiar with a variety of materials and techniques. The acquired
knowledge and skills are then applied when working on own designs and
implementations in workrooms. That is, students’ work is based on hand-
drawn designs, which are then worked with in a 3D program, followed by
implementation guidelines and execution of their designs.
Every student’s unique perspective and abilities are valued – they are
encouraged to be creative, to be able to respond to given topics originally
and to look for new and novel solutions of their own. Computer graphics
and modelling in 3D utilising a 3D printer constitute an integral part of the
classes from the very start. Practical skills are developed in workshops
(e.g. screen printing and sewing), where attention is paid to acquiring
craftsmanship and developing manual dexterity that is needed when
executing own designs. A number of other specialist subjects provide
students with fundamentals of typography, modelling (clay modelling,
casting), ergonomics and figurative drawing. Field trips, exhibitions and
lectures are an important part of the curriculum.
Successful graduates are well equipped with complex knowledge of
interior design and related skills whose broad spectrum makes them ready
for a career in graphic and textile design and college-ready for the major
of their choice.
