Intro
The versatility of the designer reveals the complexity and the excitement of the contemporary jewelry landscape. Constantly contaminated by different creative languages, it is the expression of the socio-cultural reality.
Istituto Europeo di Design was founded in 1966 in Milan by Francesco Morelli. For more than fifty years, the IED has been operating in the fields of education and research in the disciplines of design, fashion, visual communication, and management.

 
The Jewelry Design Department at IED Milan fosters a complete and cross-disciplinary education in the contemporary jewelry field. The complex scenario is embraced by opening a dialogue between two apparently distant realities: an intimate and experimental approach and a company-oriented design, both fundamental for jewelry designers.

In this framework, the jewel artifact is considered as a multifaceted design object, constantly contaminated by different creative languages as well as by socio-cultural phenomena and occurrences. Thus, it is a means of communication, aimed at conveying both individual and collective meanings.
The IED approach - based on learning by doing and project culture - provides a balanced mixture of goldsmith skills, design methodology, and experimental research. Students are encouraged to combine tradition and innovation, considering themselves and their personal stories and experience as a precious and unique narrative resource, capable to build their future identity as designers.

During their path, they may profit from different design approaches under the guidance of a faculty of professionals, trained with specific skills in their areas of expertise. Furthermore, collaborations with galleries, international competitions, and events offer the possibility for students to take the first steps in the professional environment.
The school trains students to manage independently the making of a collection, providing them with knowledge and tools to handle the numerous aspects of the design process: concept phase, design, prototyping, production, as well as visual and strategy communication.
Students can benefit from a privileged student/teacher relation thanks to the limited number of participants in a course.

. Mirror retains a powerful ability to directly engage people. 
. Some take advantage of the reflective properties to explore, fragment, ask questions of perception, to create and distort space and environment, or allow people to contemplate themselves in their own reflections.
. Look At You is about the involvement of human perception through the use of the sight.
. People so often see their image reflected in the mirror but not always what we see in a surface reflected the reality of the things. The appearance is deceiving and in our reality, nothing is as it seems.. Francesca Zilli

. The collection is about the relation between human being and the forest. While you are in a woods, all your senses perceive the power of nature: you can see the effect of the light passing through the leaves, hear the sound of the living creatures, smell the perfume of the plants. People are wrapped up by nature and become part of it.. Clara Morganti
