In Italy, in 1966, Francesco Morelli founded Istituto Europeo di Design, an innovative school that revolutionized the academic universe by going against the traditional theoretical education and proposing as a complement to theory the practical application of knowledge.
Based on the nexus between knowledge and know-how, IED set off to a great legacy.
In 2014, Rio de Janeiro welcomed the second headquarters of IED in Brazil, revitalizing the cultural and historical heritage of Cassino da Urca and signaling the great impact that was about to come with the arrival of IED Rio.
An independent school, the headquarters of the Institute in Rio is a laboratory for the development of different areas connected to Design, from Fashion to Strategy and Management, from the graphic and digital universe to products and spaces, bringing together in one place students, professors, professionals and companies in search of creative and innovative solutions with an eye on the transformations of society and on the demands of the future.
Point of cultural convergence and stage to important artistic movements in the country, Rio de Janeiro is the synthesis of Brazil: the city’s plastic wealth, the creative ability of its inhabitants, the fascinating colors, the landscapes, and the reinvented materials are genuine expressions of the Brazilian identities, which make Rio a unique site for a headquarters of IED Brazil.
