I am Shani and I am an industrial designer by profession focusing on furniture design. In my first 3 years working in the furniture industry, I was able to work with a lot of interior designers, hence, I wanted to also be able to design my own space. Art and design plays a huge role in my life. I always enjoy being surrounded with various artworks and creative people.

Interior Design Short Course (n.3)

Interior Design blogThis week, to wrap my design for the kitchen area, Professor Bicci showed me different samples of kitchen interior and this one in particular is a modular design solution example he showed.
Interior Design blogProfessor Bicci discussed with me today an example of how resin flooring is done as a cheaper alternative than marble material. We watched several samples on the internet on how it is done.
Interior Design blogI was introduced to several kinds of wood materials (laminated wood, veneers, oak, MDF etc.) that can be used for interior design. Today I learned about how and what wood material is best used on a particular area/furniture.
Interior Design blog I was also introduced to a couple of metal materials that can also be applied in interior design such as stainless steel, brass, copper, and aluminum.
Interior Design blogProfessor Bicci briefly explained to me a sample of a technical drawing as my next task for the next couple of weeks. He discussed how it should be done and the placement of each drawing.
Interior Design blogThis week I designed a dining table made out of brass for a 8-10 seater table. It is designed with a glass top to better appreciate the design of the bottom.
Interior Design blogWe discussed possible solutions on how the table base can be attached with the glass. Professor Bicci drew a couple of solutions that can be done depending on the aesthetic of the table I want to achieve.
Interior Design blogThis week I went to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa since it’s a quick train ride away from Florence.
Interior Design blogI also went to the beautiful town of Lucca which is also part of Tuscany and is a quick train ride away from Florence. I particularly like the overall ambiance this charming town has.
Interior Design blogI spent a beautiful Friday evening watching the sunset in Arno river and I saw a boat in the middle of the river and it was a lovely sight to see.
