BA (Hons) Product Design/Design for Products at Istituto Marangoni

The BA (Hons) Product Design/Design for Products course at Istituto Marangoni equips students with manual, technical and digital design skills to create products in innovative ways.

School: Istituto Marangoni
Course: BA (Hons) Product Design/Design for Products
Location: London, United Kingdom
Course dates: October 2022 to June 2025
Application deadline: 31 August 2022

Both furniture and industrial product design overlap with many creative fields, including crafts, fashion, art and interior design.

Product designers understand where these areas meet and make use of contemporary influences and appropriate methods in their own creative process, designing luxury furniture, bespoke one-off items, or products for industrial design and commercialisation.

This three-year course covers a mix of applied manual, technical and digital design skills, including technical drawing, 3D modelling, visualisation and prototype development.

It combines this with a holistic approach in the journey toward design project development, working individually and in teams to nurture and develop creative talent in design processes, methods and final product realisation.

Participants learn how to effectively apply research methods to the development of product design proposals. They acquire knowledge of the basic principles of industrial processes and organisation and gain expertise of material properties, learning how to exploit and employ existing or new materials effectively and in innovative ways.

Particular attention is given to product sustainability, ergonomics and user awareness, together with preparation in design language and communication to provide a professional approach in the planning, negotiation and presentation of ideas.

Applications to this course have now closed.
