The Advent of Technology: AI Impacting Furniture Design

TO THEHow does AI play an important role in the design of furniture?

We can see the presence and engagement of technology everywhere. Nowadays, the advancement of technology and the advent of the internet have changed the way we live, we wear, we eat, we see, everything. But have you ever imagined how? Technology, especially AI has an impact on the way furniture is designed, made, etc.?

Various technologies are used today to advertise and advertise end products from different furniture segments. Digital catalogs incorporate evolving technologies such as expanded reality, virtual reality, 3D modeling & art, mobile technology, artificial intelligencee, IoT, Etc.

Below are examples of how technology has impacted this field:

3d printing

3D printing is already a broad, all-time topic on the market. This is a type of production called additive manufacturing, in which three-dimensional geometries generated on the computer are converted into reality with exactly the required amount of material and forms are created that could not be produced by humans.

A furniture item can be printed anywhere in the world simply by owning a digital file, which can be a useful option for remote locations.

The idea behind this is that the chairs can be downloaded for free and printed out at home. Each element is sufficiently small and can be made in the most compact 3D printers.

expanded reality

Augmented Reality can be seen everywhere from Instagram filters to interactive games. It has invaded our everyday lives. In the case of furniture, augmented reality applications primarily offer the possibility of discovering desired objects in a real space, which gives a better sense of scale, color and the future environment. For this reason, several companies have invested in tools to improve the visualization of their products and make these conditions even better. AR enables users to put some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in their own homes with just a few clicks. For example, IKEA has developed an AR application to test its furniture in real environments.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Furniture with internet can provide us with comfort, reduce repetitive tasks, remind us of commitments and even take care of our health.

Artificial intelligence

The term Artificial Intelligence is often applied to the ability of a machine or system to think, discover meanings, generalize, or learn from previous experience.

The computer can develop thousands of iterations, following the parameters and sequences set by the user in order to arrive at the most appropriate solutions. Kartell’s AI is considered to be the first market chair created by artificial intelligence. The generative design developed by the architect Philippe Starck in collaboration with Autodesk was used to create a strong, stable and aesthetically pleasing chair with as little material as possible.

In recent years, the role of the interior designer has gained considerable popularity. With the development of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), the domain is getting bigger and better. The advances are so significant that we have a number of mobile apps, web apps, and other tools that do the job of an interior designer.
