Interior Space and Furniture Design

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 a harmonious interaction .This makes the built space respond like an efficient and welldesigned 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.

Bachelors of Design: Interior Space & Furniture Design

The bachelors’ program in Interior Space and Furniture Design is structured with the sole objective of creating sensitive space designers who can create sensible spaces. With an intense foundation in first year, the learner undergoes courses at each semester with a blend of space design as well as furniture design. The structure is based on five verticals of Skill based inputs, Technological inputs, Space & Form studies, Design Context & Design Projects. This multifaceted approach enables the learners to look at space in holistic manner and design the interiors and furniture to enhance its functionality. The unique aspect of Interior Space and Furniture Design programs at MIT ID as compared to other Space Design courses is the emphasis on hands on approach. The pedagogy focuses on the deliverance of the core subject with an intension to cater to not only the big industry but also to the small scale and rural industries and handicrafts sector. An ISFD graduate is thus capable of handling different types of space design projects & designing furniture along with their execution independently.

Masters of Design: Interior Space & Furniture Design

The masters’ program in Interior Space and Furniture Design offers specialisation for all design graduates who seek material based hands on explorations in space & furniture domain. The course nurtures an attitude towards detailing focused space design, prototype oriented furniture design or to space styling through emphasis on CMF. The course is structured with a focus on developing design skills in first semester, a design realisation oriented second semester & a practical choice based third semester that develops a graduate to a focused & confident space & furniture designer. A learner would further become sensitive towards Indian craft & cultural aspects affecting user’s spatial behaviour & understanding. ISFD department encourages research as a part of its training in space & furniture design as a tool of change for sustainable competitive advantage. The postgraduate learner thus would consolidate a portfolio, where the attained competences and the work of specific domain for each individual would stand out as a personal brand.

CAREERS

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.
