This intelligent platform allows you to visualize your future home
The world of interiors may have flirted with augmented reality (following the launch of Pinterest’s recent platform) – but it looks like AI is here to stay – as another company has just followed suit.
This time the launch is courtesy of San Francisco-based powerhouse Modsy, a state-of-the-art interior design platform that offers highly realistic 3D designs of customers’ real homes.
This modern decorating idea is similar to Pinterest in that it allows design enthusiasts to visualize the future. However, while the photo platform is focused on “trying on” furniture – Modsy’s is more focused on the entire renovation project. You can tour your remodeled home without experimenting with countless paint samples (and a big investment), but what exactly does this smart platform entail?
Ultimately, you receive hyper-realistic 3D designs created in collaboration with one of the brand’s designers – before fully viewing and virtually walking through your newly remodeled home.
“We are transforming an industry by combining design and technology in unique ways. Launching the Renovation Design Service was the natural next step for our clients and our proprietary 3D platform,” says Shanna Tellerman, Founder and CEO of Modsy.
Before venturing into a large-scale project, Shanna recommends testing your visions through the platform, so you can be sure your design ideas are right for your room. And, this launch is right on time.
“The demand for remodeling and remodeling has exploded over the past few years as our relationship with the home continues to evolve,” says Shanna.
She adds that their customers were increasingly asking them to be accompanied in their projects – the platform is therefore launching into a world ready to experiment with these AR possibilities. “We knew we could create a truly unique, one-of-a-kind solution,” adds Shanna.
The founder is certainly not wrong. While this platform is the first of its kind in terms of large-scale renovation, it is also a response to an ever-growing interest in AR that is creeping into the world of design. When discussing Pinterest’s similar platform, Jeremy King, senior vice president of engineering, also observed an increase in “digitally savvy shoppers,” fueled, among other things, by the pandemic, when people found themselves immersed primarily in a digital world.
“Millions of people now expect virtual and mobile options to try before they buy, see personalized recommendations, and gather insights as part of their decision-making process,” adds Jeremy.
We have a virtual design “dressing room” – and now – an augmented reality renovation service. We can only ask, what’s next?
