Interior Design and Scenography

Developing innovative approaches to space and the impact it develops is core to the work at the Institute of Interior Design and Scenography.

While scenography deals with the design and dramatic composition of time sequences and narration in space, interior design attends to the atmospheric effect of space in due consideration of the optimization of functional processes.

At the Institute of Interior Design and Scenography we engage with space in all its facets: its dimensions, colours and materiality, its surfaces, with regard to lighting as well as the objects that structure space. Our tasks involve stage settings, film sets, exhibitions, urban situations or interventions in the fields of gastronomy, work organization and corporate design. Our work is team-based and interdisciplinary, our projects require knowledge and skills from a wide range of disciplines.

In the context of service provision, studies and research projects, we regularly enter into collaborations, involving real projects on a 1:1 scale.

Basel ranks as one of the richest cultural cities in Europe, featuring just on forty museums on merely thirty-seven square kilometres.
