First City Students Celebrate World Interior Day In Style
29 May 2019

PETALING JAYA- Interior Architecture and Design students from First City University College (formerly known as KBU International College) made their World Interior Day celebration a memorable one by inviting Dulux Malaysia to conduct a special workshop on campus.

World Interior Day is celebrated globally each year, with the purpose of connecting students, professionals as well as members of the design community. This provides an opportunity for exploration, learning, and discovery as well as the chance to raise the status of the design profession in the eyes of world.

According to Interior Architecture and Design Student Club president Elwin Kee, this year’s theme of “Designing Space, Changing Lives” aims to give the Interior Design and Architecture profession a stronger voice in the community by drawing attention to the tangible and intangible impact design has on everyone.

“The Architecture and Interior Design profession has impacted lives across many continents throughout the years. It is only appropriate that we have an event such as World Interior Day to honour those from this profession while raising awareness regarding the need for well-designed living spaces,” Kee explained.

Dulux Malaysia’s workshop, themed “Space, Dream, Love, Act” aimed to introduce students to Dulux’s 4 ColourFutures 2019 palettes with the goal of empowering people to create homes full of purpose and possibilities.

One of the workshop activities included a talk by Dulux Malaysia on the importance of using the right variety of colours and paints in interior spaces. The lifestyle and living space of a house may be affected by using a slightly different colour mix.

Another workshop activity involved the students creating a mood board, which refers to a collage consisting of images, texts, and samples of objects used to convey a general idea or a particular feeling towards a topic. During the activity, students worked together in groups to design a mood board which followed one of the appointed Colour Themes (Space, Dream, Love, Act).

By making creative use of old magazine pages, all of the groups succeeded in creating their own unique and eye-catching mood boards. The activity concluded with each group presenting their respective works with a representative giving an in-depth explanation of their board’s concept.

In addition to the workshop, IAD students who visited the UK during the London-Manchester Education Trip in March this year were given the opportunity to share their experiences. Each of these unique experience were conveyed via sketches which in turn were compiled and displayed in a mini gallery.
