The programme of the Master Course in Product Design is workshop-based, supported by seminars, tutorials, lectures, work-in-progress sessions, critiques and a series of tutor led-projects. Through a pro-active relationship with the Course Staff and Project Leaders, students will lead their project work and be supported through consultative and advisory tutorial guidance.
Final Master Project The final project is an important moment of the overall learning experience, since students have the chance to critically select, adopt, and integrate the methodologies learned during the course into a single, consistent body of knowledge .
Students will need to produce a coherent body of work that reflects a developing personal integrity and achieve a high level of technical skill. They will need to develop an individual approach to the research and develop their own personal investigation, planning and writing of a final report. Students will be expected to demonstrate a clear relationship between their research, text and practical work submitted to the Masters presentation. They will be expected to critically reflect on their own practices as well as on that of others, by exploring and identifying the context of their own work within the area of Product Design.
Collaboration with companies and/or designers will add real value and links to the field, while still maintaining students freedom as far as the selection and development of a personal theme is concerned.

Domestic LandscapesNew product concepts for Gufram Candidates are asked to identify new product concepts that will maintain both the continuity and the values of the historical brand, and lead to new directions to be explored. Most of the items in its catalogue are radical experimentations of those years in which designers were working together with artists and architects to explore new forms and new materials. The new collection of Gufram should present the same distinctive elements: the relationship with art, iconicity, stylistic discontinuity with domestic furniture, originality, capacity to create a mood. The field of research we want to approach encompasses all the existing typologies in domestic furniture and is aimed at building a new domestic landscape.
