The Faculty of Decorative Arts was established in 1956 under the impetus of Professor Silpa Bhirasri (Corrado Feroci), at that time the Dean of the Faculty of Painting and Sculpture.
The new Faculty was the first such institution of higher education in Thailand to promote the study of the various disciplines of the design profession, in their academic and practical aspects.
Currently, the seven respective departments offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in the fields of Interior Design, Visual Communication Design, Product Design, Applied Art Studies, Ceramics, Jewelry Design, and Fashion Design. Students are trained in project management, art education and aesthetics, among other cross-disciplinary specializations.
Annual exhibitions showcase the works of the faculty and students, with a special focus on students’ works for their theses. The Faculty also holds a design contest every year that is open to public participation, and offers design services for public and private concerns.
The decorative arts serve society in numerous ways, most importantly in preserving the arts and culture while promoting new concepts and styles.
