The Advent of Technology: AI Impacting Furniture Design – Analytics Insight

How AI is playing an important role in designing furniture?

We can see the presence and involvement of technology everywhere. Nowadays, the evolution of technology and the advent of the internet has completely changed the way we live, we wear, we eat, we see, everything. But have you ever imagined how technology, especially AI has impacted the way furniture is designed, manufactured, etc?

A variety of technologies are being used today for promoting and advertising end products from varied furniture segments. Digital catalogs integrate evolving technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D modeling & art, mobile technology, artificial intelligence, IoT, etc.

Below are examples of how technology has impacted this field:


3D Printing

3D printing is already a broad ongoing topic in the market. It involves a type of manufacturing called additive manufacturing, in which three-dimensional geometries generated on a computer are switched into reality utilizing only the exact amount of material needed and generating shapes that would be impossible for a human being to manufacture.

A furniture object can be printed anywhere in the world simply through possession of 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 at home. Each element is adequately small and can be made in the most compact 3D printers.


Augmented Reality

Augmented reality can be observed everywhere from Instagram filters to interactive games. It has entered our daily lives. In the case of furniture, augmented reality applications provide, above all, to discover desired objects in a real space, giving an improved sense of scale, color, and how the environment will be like in the future. That is why several enterprises have been spending on tools to enhance the visualization of their products, making these conditions even better. AR enables users to place some of the most iconic pieces of furniture into their own homes via a few clicks. For example, IKEA has developed an AR application to test its furniture in real environments.


Internet of Things (IoT)

Furniture with the internet can serve us with comfort, reduce repetitive tasks, remind us of commitments, and even ensure health.


Artificial Intelligence

The term Artificial Intelligence is often applied to the ability of a machine or system to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from previous experiences.

The computer can develop thousands of iterations, following parameters and orders pre-established by the user, to arrive at the most appropriate solutions. Kartell’s A.I. is considered the first market chair created through Artificial Intelligence. Developed by architect Philippe Starck, in partnership with Autodesk, the generative design was used to arrive at the design of a strong, stable, and aesthetically pleasing chair, using as little material as possible.

Over the past couple of years, the interior designing job role has witnessed significant traction. With the evolution of technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR), the domain is just getting bigger and better. The advancements are so significant that we have a slew of mobile apps, web apps, and other tools doing the job of an interior designer.
