The workshops

Saturday, September 26th, 2009


As part of the collaboration between CIID and Danmark Designskole (DKDS), our programme can take profit of DKDS facilities. Amazing workshops for metal, wood, glass, textile, electronics, photography and stop motion are available at any time (including weekends), allowing people to develop academic and personal projects. During the second week we were taught about how to use the machinery to work with metal and wood.

Interaction Design at CIID

Sunday, September 20th, 2009


The 14th September I started a 1-year course in the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID). The experimental programme explores interaction and service design, encouraging peer-to-peer education, hands-on learning and prototyping as an essential part of the design process.

We are 21 students from 12 different countries and backgrounds, with a common feeling for design and beautiful experiences. From the very first day I was amazed at the incredible synergy of our diversity of skills, thinking and culture.

During the first day Simona and Vinay gave us an overview of the curriculum and the philosophy of the programme, as well as an exciting vision on how CIID approaches design. Here some quotes from the presentation:

“We use the experimental nature of the programme to help us evolve our
definition of design.”
“We look for insights and inspirations, not proofs.”
“We are into the craft of technology and not the science.”
“Our design goals are not visual or physical aesthetics, we work towards crafting beautiful experiences. It’s still about aesthetics.”
