Shaping tomorrow’s designers with a real word-orientation, Poznań-based New School of Form makes a strong argument for hands-on education, balanced with a human and social science foundation. Divided into four holistic and open-atelier style departments – Domestic, Fashion, Industrial and Communication – the three-year-old institution looks to cover all relevant issues facing society today. Students are able to experiment with all aspects of design while receiving guidance from an international group of dedicated technicians and established professionals. Equipped with ever growing workshops, young talents are put through a series of formative exercises before being given free rain to develop their own concepts. Outside critiques by trend guru Lidewij Edelkoort – one of the school’s initiators – are joined by collaboration with industrial and local cultural platforms.
