Full design scheme from initial concept design to design implementation and project coordination.

Design process

  1. Discovery Meeting: After obtaining the script, the design process begins with a meeting to discuss the brief.
  2. Concept Design: In response to the client’s brief, a concept design scheme is created for discussion.  This is presented in the form of draft layouts, as well as a mood board with images to help the client visualise the scheme.
  3. Detailed Design: Once the client has agreed the concept design, the project moves to detailed set design drawings and set floor layouts, scene by scene, which are presented in the form of CAD drawings.
  4. Procurement: Once the detailed design has been agreed, a roughly costed plan is presented of all items to be used for the set building.
  5. Installation & Dressing: db-INTERIOR works with a number of builders/carpenters who deliver accurate set design. Should the client want to work with their own preferred builders/carpenters, db-INTERIOR is very happy to work alongside them.

db-INTERIOR is a Basel-based interior design and set design consultancy whose work encompasses, residential, retail, commercial and set/scenography design.
