Design Centre Stories

Next Generation Thinking

From its base in Design Centre East, KLC School of Design has been helping people achieve a career in interior design for over 35 years. Many students make the decision to pursue a path in interior design from all walks of life and career backgrounds. With 120 international showrooms on their doorstep, they are immersed in a world-famous environment that is as inspiring as it is influential. Celebrating bright new minds, the annual Interior Design Exhibition showcased projects from its on-site courses. Providing a platform for students to present their work in public, on display was an impressive range of inventive and visual work including models, drawings and multi-media installations. Visitors were able to chat to the talented graduates who created them. Exhibiting creative flair with real-world design solutions, many were the results of design competitions with industry names such as Porta Romana, as well as ideas conceived for The Royal Hospital of Neuro-disability. Employers appreciate the way that KLC graduates have been prepared for entry into the industry, combining practical and commercial knowledge with design skills. Many graduates are now working in design companies nationwide.
