The CSP (Continuing Study Program) in Lighting for Retail and Commercial Spaces explores the use of light as an instrumental tool for design and expression in commercial spaces, this being an increasingly competitive and changing sector.

Lighting is a crucial part of designing any environment or experience. In the hospitality sector, retail and offices, lighting is closely related to brand image, making it a crucial element to create a user experience that fulfils all commercial requirements.

During the program, students will be putting into practice everything they learn from the workshops they attend and the comprehensive lighting design projects they carry out, including conception, development and execution.

IED Master school provides continuing  training, qualifications, specialisations and  the chance to keep up-to-date with all  aspects of design, backed by the rich historic  and cultural heritage of Italian design.

Our strategy for the future is always in tune with social, environmental and financial macrotrends, and we keep a watchful eye on the changes that our cities and surroundings will need to adapt to over the coming 30 years. We believe that we can provide answers and solutions through design.

Our teaching here at IED Master is based on  the four scenarios we consider crucial to face  the needs of the future: design for sustainable development, design for new business models, design for new media and design for people.

Our goal is to train professionals who are capable of harnessing cultural values and de-sign tools to not only overcome the challenges of the future, but create and drive innovation. We want our students to take responsibility for their training path and learn how to steer it with the support and tutoring of experts and professionals.

At IED Master, we see the School as a  laboratory where students can be innovative, enterprising and a driving force; where they are free to experiment and create.
