The ‘YOO Styler’, will allow customers to use a glossy, table-top touchscreen to see a 2D plan of their homes. They will be able to drag and drop virtual items of YOO Home furniture into the interior scheme, which will calculate whether each piece is suitable for the space. The system then creates a 3D projection of the room onto a 5 metre wall in the store allowing customers to get a real, tangible sense of each item of furniture in situ before arranging purchase and delivery of their furniture.
“I’ve always believed that interior design and the way we interact with our homes is more an evolution than a revolution,” Hitchcox says. “But now, with the launch of YOO Styler, I may be forced to eat my words; I think we will revolutionise the way people design and view the space they live in within a matter of a few years. YOO Home is all about interaction and inclusion, we want to work with our customers so that they can customise our collections to make the furniture they choose very much their own.” Source: Yoo.com
