The newly created programme – ID Material Day celebrates the strength of high quality materials, while educating Interior Design students of The One Academy on the need for proper materials that suit different functions.
With the advance of Interior Design techniques as well as materials, more and more people are trying to enhance their residential or working space with magical and stylish touches. To help students to adapt into the rapidly changing world of Interior Design, the Interior Design students of The One Academy were given an enlightening insight into the functions and strengths of different materials.
In line with the practical coaching approach that underscores the creative design education here in The One Academy, the first ever ID Material Day was held with the belief that students should be in constant contact with the front runners in the industry. In this ground-breaking event, material suppliers were invited to exhibit their range of products as well as share their views on them.
For the inaugural ID Material Day, Carpet Ideas was invited to share about their Interface products. Interface is the world market leader of soft-surfaced modular floor coverings, while Carpet Ideas was appointed as their main distributor for Malaysia. As a compulsory programme for all Interior Design students, this programme has opened students’ eyes on the diversity and flexibility of these modern-looking modular carpets.
Besides getting in-depth understanding and the application of such materials, students were also delighted to find out that the speakers shared quite a few recent developments in the domestic and international industry, including the latest trends and the ‘in’ things around the world.
As part of the industry-driven syllabus, the event has once again highlighted The One Academy’s highly-acclaimed philosophy of Masters Train Masters. It is no wonder the brilliant graduates of this internationally-renowned top-notch art and design college are privileged to master various specialised knowledge and tower above their peers upon venturing into their creative careers.
