Surfaces are one of the most obvious yet provocative tools appropriated by interior designers, affecting mood, atmosphere, and comfort as well as the way space is inhabited. An interior will function effectively only when its finished surfaces are well integrated into the project. The course will provide a general introduction to interior surfaces not only in terms of depth, durability, and appropriateness for a specific function but also in terms of how decisions over finish contribute to and express a design idea. By allowing the students to understand various aspects of tactility, visuality, and spatiality, it is expected that they will develop awareness towards how surface variation can impact space and enhance the interior experience.
