A new 6-week online course called The Vegan Interior Design Method, created by Aline Dürr, founder and creative director of Vegan Interior Design and writer of a 2020 book on the topic, sets out to provide anyone with the tools to create healthy, sustainable and cruelty-free interior designs. It is a creative approach to ending animal exploitation and the celebration of healthy and sustainable design evolution, says the founder.
The Sydney, Australia-based expert, who also organised the Vegan Interior Design Week in 2021, says to vegconomist that the “concept of ‘The Vegan Interior Design Method’ goes beyond the usual interior design trends and courses. It explores the challenges surrounding climate and ecological change through the lenses of interior design, ethics, health and technology. Students, whether vegan or not, will walk away with a wealth of knowledge about how to create spaces to live and work in more consciously, healthier and much more sustainably.”
Providing targeted support and enabling worldwide collaboration and networking, the course is structured into six separate modules with one released each week for students to complete the teachings in their own time. Course materials include videos, expert interviews, downloadable worksheets, checklists, questionnaires, additional reading and learning material, email templates, and a personal onboarding call.
“Vegan Interior Design is for everyone!’ says Aline Dürr. “Everyone who lives, sleeps, eats or works in a space, whether they are vegan or not, should know about what is actually in the materials and finishes that surround us all day and influence our wellbeing and health. This includes interior designers who want to learn more about ethical interior design but also any individual interested in creating healthier, more sustainable and cruelty-free spaces for themselves or their families.”
“The course is directed as much at professional interior designers who want to add on another specialty to their services as it is directed at any home or business owner or design, health or sustainability aficionado,” she adds.
