Interior Design students score with Chelsea FC

interior design students work with chelsea fc as part of museum redevelopment 

Interior Design students have been working with Chelsea Football Club on their final projects that focused on the Museum’s redevelopment. 

The ideas will help the redevelopment of Chelsea Football Club’s museum that is opening in September.

Over the past six weeks, students from Interior Design have presented their projects and ideas to Chelsea Football Club.

Level 3 Interior Design students worked with the design consultancy Designwerk on the project. The project focused on one of the rooms in the museum: ‘The Foundation Room’.

‘The Foundation Room’ focuses on the local community. Therefore our students’ ideas focused on engaging visitors with the club’s history, charitable work and the club’s future.

The brief stated that the room should use other elements to engage all ages rather than being technology-led.

Ideas included an area where visitors could share their stories, which included engaging graphics and creative displays concepts.

The students attended an initial briefing at Stamford Bridge and afterwards they started to work on their ideas. Their ideas where then presented to Designwerk.

The final project presentation was held at Chelsea Football Club on Wednesday 13 June.

Saha Saif and Connor Crawford from Designwerk, said: 

“It was good to see the students thinking like designers as they are using the same design processes that we use in the workplace.”

Student gains work experience at design company through project

As a result of the project, Level 3 student, Saffron Lord, won a three-month design internship with Designwerk.

Saffron said:I am excited to work with DesignWerk more. I am looking forward to see what new doors open for me. It is an incredible opportunity to be offered an internship with DesignWerk. Furthermore, this internship will really give me a truly valuable experience within the design industry.”

Alya Rizvi, who is the Curriculum Manager of Design and Multimedia, said: “All our Interior Design and Architecture courses prepare students for higher education and design employment. It is brilliant that not only do our students get into top design universities each year, but our students also gain work placements at top design companies too.”

In addition, the museum will be opening at Chelsea Football Club’s Stamford Bridge site on 1st September 2018.
