Course description

The goal of the course focused on interior design is to familiarize the participants with a perspective of an interior which, as a priority, is based on the active intervention of its creator and reflects the personality and individuality of the user. This perspective of an interior has no ambition to challenge architectural rules or design icons. The basic element of building the intellectual essence of this perspective of an interior is the joy of creation, a game and the feeling of freedom. Participants will learn a new view of the relevant interior, in which they will apply their ideas and will be expertly-led to practices that really work. Each interior can have a completely different atmosphere, but no style is a dogma.
