The IED Barcelona projects lighting up shop windows for Christmas

The initiative  ‘Las luces de Navidad iluminan el comercio’ [Christmas Lights Illuminate Commerce] once again features projects by IED Barcelona students, one of which has received a special mention from the jury.

Euphoric Christmas and Navitus are the proposals that students in their third year of the school’s Interior Design courses have produced to light up the shop windows of two establishments in the city of Barcelona. Although very different and tailored to the needs of each client, the lighting and use of colour are prominent elements in both designs. 

This initiative, driven by Barcelona Design Centre and Barcelona City Council’s Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, aims to boost local trade within the framework of the Christmas campaign. Further, it is an excellent platform through which to showcase the work of up-and-coming design talent.

EUPHORIC CHRISTMAS Special Mention from the Jury

Students: Anarella Morales, Hafdís Hlynsdóttir and Yasmin Vargas

Course: Third year of the Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design

Tutor: Michella Mezzavilla 

The aim of this installation, designed for the window display of iPeluShop, is to generate the sensation of the first snowfall through lighting and the use of polystyrene balls. 

The students propose an interactive design: customers are encouraged to take a selfie in the mirror located in the centre of the window display, and to participate in the Christmas raffle publicised by the hair salon on its Instagram profile. 

NAVITUS

Students: Patricia Belma y Pia Martí 

Course: Third year of the Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design

Tutor: Michella Mezzavilla 

The students worked on the window display at Estampería San José, a shop located in the Ciutat Vella district that sells religious products.

Taking the Christmas traditions linked to Catholicism and the designs of the Sagrada Familia’s stained-glass windows as references, the project places emphasis on the use of colour for the two thematic spaces chosen: the birth of Jesus and the star of Bethlehem.
