Together with our partner Universities, Politecnico di Milano and Middlesex University, we organise for the fourth time, the summer school "Seamless retail design: integrating the spatial, experiential and digital”. This time it is set up as a crash course of one week of which the goal is to invite students and young professionals from different disciplines (interior design, architecture, product design/industrial design, marketing and cross/multi media design) to collectively reflect on the challenges and opportunities of the “store of the future”.

The general set-up is to combine the state-of-the-art knowledge coming from both academics and experienced practitioners with the creativity ofstudents and young professionals, while working on a real life project

Additionally, extra-curricular activities and social events will further stimulate international collaboration and ensure a lively and fun atmosphere.
