Interior design, as a specific field of academic study and expertise, has been quietly developing and maturing globally. Design and arts education were based on the simple concept of experimentation and encouraged students to explore alternative solutions to problems but also encouraged new ways to consider and conceptualise the interior. One of the original examples of this was at the Bauhaus School of Design in Germany in the 1920s. This school helped form the basis for modernism thinking and this initiated the European models of design teaching that created an impact for both two-dimensional and three-dimensional design during most of the twentieth century. The development of interior design education grew from an appreciation of architectural form and the early recognition of how specialised interior education could impact upon the quality of the interior experience and improve the inside surfaces of architecture. The chapter examines the translations and interpretations of interior design in a global context.
