In Italy, 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 knowhow, IED set off to a great legacy.
Inaugurated in 2005 in the largest Brazilian city, IED São Paulo marked the beginning of the Institute’s activity in Brazil and outside of Europe, positioning the school as the only international college 100% dedicated to Design in the country.
Located in this diverse cultural center and meeting point for a number of regionalities and nationalities, the headquarters of IED in São Paulo weaves a rich network of students, professors, and professionals around the generation of innovative ideas and proposals for people, businesses and societies through the creative perspective of Design.
In addition to an educational center, IED São Paulo always keeps its doors open to the community, promoting events and a cultural agenda that strengthens Design as a powerful transformation and innovation tool.
Study at IED São Paulo and live the best of the connection between the historic Italian design and the effervescence of one of the greatest cities in the world.
