On 6th December, at the Polo of Engineering, ICA Academy organized an innovative seminar for the designers and the students of the Design Course.

In the city where one of the oldest universities in our country was founded and which promotes the path of innovation, the high level training of the ICA group came, leader in Italian green research and ideator of anti-CO2 wood coatings.

The participants in the seminar “Color in interiors: design, function and evolution”, organized by ICA Academy, discovered the colors of the future. 

The event took place on Friday 6 December at the Engineering Pole of the University of Perugia, in a land of great artists of the past that is candidate to baptize the creatives of tomorrow.

The initiative was aimed at the students of the Design Course and at the designers who wanted to update their skills with cutting-edge theoretical and practical knowledge on the formation of colors, materials and finishes.
