Interior Design

The Interior Design Program at LdM gives the opportunity to work in teams on projects for real customers. Professors and lecturers provide an inside view into what to expect from the professional world and how to navigate it successfully.

Field trips to furniture factories, designer offices, and artist studios give students a hands-on experience of all aspects of Interior Design.
