Design Labs

The Department's Laboratory System represents the largest international center of technological infrastructure to support research and teaching in the field of design. It consists of four instrumental laboratories occupying a total area of more than 6,000 square meters, providing equipment and expertise to support research, design and prototyping activities in the various fields of design.

Constantly expanding and updating, the Laboratories provide a vital link between research and education. Through advanced equipment and instruments, they allow supporting experimental activities in teaching. Thanks to specialized technical staff and in collaboration with faculty and researchers, they also support experimental research conducted in the Department and offer external partners technical services for the design, prototyping and testing of new products, solutions and systems.


Research and teaching services

The Laboratories accommodate some experimental teaching activities organized by the School of Design. They are also available for unrestricted access by students in possession of security clearance

The Laboratories also support the Department's faculty and researchers in activities and projects that require specific experimentation and instrumentation.


Business services

High-profile equipment and expertise are available to companies, bodies and associations for the design, prototyping and testing of a proof of concepts, products, solutions and systems in the main areas of design application: from textiles-fashion to exhibition systems, interiors and furnishings; from image production and multimedia to the experimentation of technologies for digital manufacturing and digitization of products and services.
