Mentor Speaks



In the metropolitan of Mumbai, there is a vast demand for specialized and trained INTERIOR DESIGNERS and DECORATORS. Other institutes presently offering education in Interior Designing and Decoration much less fulfill this demand. In fact, all the latest trends of design in this country have originated from Mumbai and such city has a vast potential for formal training in this intricate field of INTERIOR ENVIRONMENT DESIGNING.

Keeping this in mind in 1997, Late Bhausaheb Hiray Smarnika Samiti Trust has setup "INSTITUTE OF DESIGN" on Plot No. 341, Next to New English School, Bandra (East), Mumbai 400 051. This area of Bandra is yet undergoing major development and is also convenient for students from South Mumbai and Suburban Mumbai, an institute of design offering Certificate Diploma Courses in Computer Aided Interior Space Design and Management, the institute is ideally located.

The Institute of Design, which is one of the HIRAY GROUP OF INSTITUTES, has department of Interior Design. It is conducting Full Time and Part Time courses such as (i) Certificate in Computer Aided Interior Space Design and Management, (ii) Diploma in Computer Aided Space Design and Management.

The Interior Design Department would want to broaden its arena to impart education through socially required (Part Time) short-term special courses namely; (a) Certificate in PERSONALITY ENHANCEMENT & COMMUNICATION SKILLS (30 Hours) and (b) Diploma in SET DESIGN (60 Hours).

While the world has moved on such, that you have a choice about everything, from how you like your tea/coffee to how you personalize your demine and bikes in megacities like Mumbai. On the other hand, Scientifically and Ergonomically considered and evaluated Space design has still to catch up.
In my opinion, one must not forget while designing any environmental spaces (Exterior or Interior) either in smart city or Green architecture or Green Interior, to have a main basic CONCEPT (idea) of providing and /or furnishing environmental spaces for various activity performance, consideration of safety desired, comfort to user/users. This is because profession of architecture and Interior Designing also , are covered under "CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT"
Hence, while imparting education to the students of Interior Design course, it is essential that teachers should stress on the students that Interior Design proposal/assignments should be such that it should not cause any physical problem to the users and should create appropriate mood to perform the perspective required activities with desired comfort, safety and ease of maintenance in respective spaces.

Keeping in mind the above and my suggestion and request with reasoning, our teachers give more thrust on the ergonomically aspects while designing along with usability (function) with desired comfort than the looks (aesthetics) only.
