Hi I am Sophia Sanchez and I’m from the Philippines. I have a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, and I also have my professional license as an Architect in the Philippines. I’ve worked in an architectural firm for a few years, and eventually tried working for a furniture designer for 2 1/2 years. It was then I gained interest in furniture design, and decided to also pursue this. I am now taking up my Master’s in Furniture design in Accademia Riaci to boost my knowledge and learn more about this area of design.

Furniture Design vol.10 – Master Course 2018 (s.s)

On today’s class, we went to various branded stores here in Florence. First up, we went to Ferragamo which our teacher designed 25 years ago. What I like about this store, compared to the other stores, is how well each part of the store is thought of. From the lighting to the shoe display and so much more. It shows that good design will always last longer as people using it will see how it has benefited them in the long run.

Another store that we visited was Dior. I like how everything there looks so luxe and expensive. I like the little touch of their brand on their floor tiles. It was said that the floor tile pattern was inspired by the sewing pattern of their bag. Sometimes, it’s on the little details that adds an element of surprise in designing.

I showed my teacher the progress of my chair. He made a few suggestions such as defining more on the shape of my chair. He also made a few points such as adding foot space on the bottom part of the chair.

On today’s art visit, our teacher brought us to places in Florence wherein not everyone knows about. She told us that the golden globe at the top of the Duomo has fallen off twice. We went to a corner in Piazza Di Signoria where Michelangelo drew a face of an unusual man on one of the walls. Knowing some of these secrets of Florence is so interesting specially that not everyone knows about it.

During my free time, I went around Florence to see the different Christmas decorations. I also went to Ponte Vecchio to see the light show. My favorite Christmas decorations so far are the ones in Piazza di Santa Trinita and Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. The one in Piazza di Santa Trinita is full of lights and they look like snow falling on the ground. The Christmas tree at Santa Maria Novella is full of colors. However, all of the Christmas decorations in Florence are just beautiful.
