Evening school: product design

Design is everywhere and affects us in our everyday lives. Evening School product design gives you a basic orientation in the design of products, objects and rooms.

A preparatory design training

The 1-year preparatory training gives you a basic orientation in product and furniture design as well as interior design. It also provides a certain artistic basis. It prepares you to apply for higher design courses, but is also suitable for those who want to take a step in their career, develop skills or change the focus on your current work.

Professional teachers from the field of design

Undervisningen leds av yrkesverksamma formgivare, inredare och konstnärer, bland dem formgivarna Jon Eliasson, Fredrik Paulsen, Anna Holmqvist och Chandra Ahlsell (Folkform).

We want to strengthen your sense of product design And your own expression

Design can ask questions, challenge, influence and develop our times. Through practical and theoretical exercises, you are given the opportunity to meet and immerse yourself in the world of design during the year. Our goal is for you to be inspired, to develop and strengthen your sense of product design and your own expression and encourage you to discuss design and design.

"The courses have really been about doing. We have had to practice working quickly, which has been good because through it I learned to quickly get into the process and to dare to trust the gut feeling."   

Emilia Lambert, Design Scholarship at Kvällsskolan product design 2019.

The main subject of the course is design with six parts:

  • furniture design
  • product design
  • fittings

Other exercises and topics during the academic year are:

An individual portfolio

The course also includes creating and presenting an individual portfolio, which is the document that is almost exclusively used as a merit document in the design industry. The focus is on work samples for higher education and you get individual feedback on how you can develop your portfolio. 

Two nights a week

Teaching in product design lectures and workshops two nights a week. In addition, the tasks/projects require you to work independently to complete these in addition to the scheduled time.
