Discover the Beauty of Minimalism

Course Description routine of client. Over a three-month period, students will have the opportunity to learn and work with experts in minimalism and explore a wide range of topics such as lighting design, color theory, furniture and material selection, organization optimization, and more. As minimalism grow more popular, demand for interior designers with the ability to design these spaces are increasing. The aim of the minimalist interior design course is to not only prepare designers for these types of future projects, but to also enable them to innovate in this field and create interesting new concepts for this design sector. Aspects such as materials, storage spaces, and composition will be studied to understand how to best utilize them and adapt them to users’ needs and make them flexible for future applications.

The course lasts three months and consists of 24 three-hour live sessions run by an expert in the topics given. These sessions are divided into two parts: topics and practical projects. The first part is 16 lectures long and begins by taking a look at the history of minimalism’s origin, history, and how it has evolved into what is today. From there we look at the different branches of minimalism and niches to gain a better understanding of what minimalism is and how it works in people’s day to day lives. Once we achieve building a strong base of knowledge in the fundamentals of minimalist interior design, we will look at specific components of designing these spaces by learning about color theory, material palettes, furniture selection, lighting design, vegetation, composition and more. We will look at minimalist interior designers from around the world and see how their design strategies and concepts can be implemented in our own future design projects. Lastly, three lectures will be dedicated to learning about specific interior spaces: kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms. These sessions will lead us into the practical project portion of the course in which we will apply what we have learned into four projects that will be created using SketchUp to represent the design proposals and put them into final presentations with mood boards, sketches, renders and more.

For this course, it is not necessary to have previous knowledge of experience. This course is open to all levels of experience.
