Domus Academy (DA) was founded in Milan in 1982 as an open-project reference center for Italian design and fashion. Over the years, DA gradually became a school in the traditional sense of the term. Today it is both a post-graduate training center and a research laboratory focusing on industrial design processes, scenarios of aesthetics and consumption, space and time relations, public and private services and the radical changes originating from the wide use of the web.

Winner of the Compasso d’Oro, Italy’s most sought after design award, with a distinguished list of past lecturers such as Ettore Sottsass, Philippe Starck, Gianfranco Ferré, Neil Barrett, and Ron Arad, DA has always been a true pioneer of “Made in Italy,” not simply teaching how to design products, but considering design as a complex, challenging activity which strategically contributes to direct the form and meaning of industrial production and culturally outlines different aesthetic and social visions.

DA was recently included by Business Week among the best design and management schools in the world.

SAI offers DA Master’s programs and undergrad Summer and Semester programs are offered at DA’s sister school, NABA.
