Future of AI: Artificial Intelligence Impacting Furniture Design

by Amelia Scott — 3 years ago in Artificial Intelligence 2 min. read

Technology is everywhere. The evolution of technology and the rise of the internet have changed everything. We now live differently, see more, eat better, and do things differently. But have you ever imagined how technology, especially AI has impacted the way furniture is designed, manufactured, etc?

Today, a variety of technologies can be used to promote and advertise end products in a range of furniture segments. Digital catalogs incorporate evolving technologies like augmented reality, virtuality, 3D modeling and art, mobile technology. Artificial intelligence, IoT, and more.

Here are some examples of how technology has affected this field

3D Printing

3D printing is a popular topic on the market. This type of manufacturing is called additive manufacturing. It uses three-dimensional geometries that are generated on a computer to turn them into reality. They use only the right amount of material and generate shapes that are impossible for humans to make.

A digital file can be used to print a furniture item anywhere in the world. This is a great option for remote locations.

This is because the chairs can be downloaded and printed at home for free. Each component is small enough to be printed in the smallest 3D printers.

How AI plays an important role when designing furniture

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is everywhere, from Instagram filters to interactive gaming. Augmented reality has become part of our everyday lives. Augmented reality apps are especially useful for furniture. They allow you to see the desired items in real space.

This gives you a better sense of scale, color, and what the environment will look like in the future. Many companies have spent money on tools that enhance the visualization of their products to make these environments even more appealing.

AR allows users to easily place iconic furniture pieces in their homes with just a few clicks. IKEA, for example, has created an AR application that allows users to place their furniture in real environments.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The internet and furniture can provide comfort, ease repetitive tasks, reminders of commitments, and even health.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence refers to the ability of a system or machine to reason, find meaning, generalize or learn from past experiences.

Computers can run thousands of iterations following predefined parameters and orders to find the best solutions. Kartell’s Artificial Intelligence.

Kartell’s Artificial Intelligence. Philippe Starck, an architect, created the generative design in collaboration with Autodesk. It was used to create a sturdy, stable, and visually pleasing chair using as little material as possible.

The interior design job has seen significant growth over the last few years. The domain is only getting better and more advanced thanks to the advancement of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual and augmented reality, and VR.

These advancements have resulted in several web apps and mobile apps that can do the job of interior designers.
