Augmented reality is increasingly being used to enhance retail experiences, such as previewing furniture designs instore. With no brick and mortar store, Poland-based Tylko have developed an app for users to ‘see’ the furniture in their homes and customize it before they buy.
Hoping to overcome the tedious process of measuring spaces and visiting furniture stores, only to return with something that still doesn’t look right, the Tylko app has a Context View feature that uses AR to display 3D objects through the user’s device camera. While viewing the product in place, users are able to customize their furniture using touchscreen gestures, including the layout, color, and even the size of a table’s legs. Once the user is happy with their design, Tylko’s platform sends the data to the appropriate manufacturing partner, and the pieces will be delivered to their door.
By using augmented reality, Tylko is providing residents of small apartments or unconventionally designed spaces the option to accurately visualize bespoke pieces to suit their needs. How else could AR depict consumer goods more accurately?
