Explore the latest technologies in custom furniture design,
Within the shifts in architectural movements and styles, furniture design has also evolved over the years, moving from elaborate sinuous lines and luxurious materials to simple, functional layouts.
And back again, in constant motion.
As it continues to evolve, contemporary furniture design is often influenced by technological advances, exploring digital fabrication and user-centred design, while also responding to sustainable strategies.
These innovations feature elevated custom furniture design, crafting unique pieces tailored to meet individual needs, preferences and space specifications.
With the ability to adapt to each user, bespoke furniture design creates unique pieces designed to meet individual needs, preferences and space specifications.
Delving into augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), Tylko creates custom, long-lasting and sustainable solutions for sideboards, wall storage, bookcases, wardrobes and TV stands.
By analyzing their advanced technological approach to creating endless possibilities of made-to-measure furniture,
We showcase their experience in the design process, along with an intuitive online configurator and augmented reality app.
Combining user-generated design techniques with parametric design techniques
User-generated design enhances the creative process by allowing users to collaborate on the design and customization of their own products.
By combining user-generated design and parametric design, Tylko has developed an online component
It enables users to create their designs by choosing sizes, shapes, materials, finishes and features.
By integrating design with programming, parametric models can implement innovative solutions, from initial sketches to digital solutions.
Having these templates inside the online configurator allows users to become the designers.
Therefore, in addition to adapting the appearance and function to the needs of each individual, customization also includes them in the design process.
Incorporating augmented reality to revolutionize furniture design
Reimagining traditional furniture design, incorporating augmented reality into the storage solution design process creates a more immersive and interactive experience.
Through augmented reality applications, users can simulate and visualize designs in specific real spaces before building them.
By pointing the smartphone camera at the area where the furniture will be placed, it can be placed virtually.
Once the furniture placement is determined, the app’s online component and intuitive interface allow users to easily make these adjustments.
Within real-time overlaid interactive 3D models, providing multiple combinations, including size, style and color options,
Plus doors, drawers, extended upper or lower storage, and even features like clothes rods, cable management, partitions and dividers.
From bedside tables that grow and contract to fit any size bed space, to wardrobes that simplify custom closet design,
The simplified configuration tool makes customizing furniture easy.
For example, when designing a bedroom,
users can experiment with different storage furniture layouts and change their colors by choosing from neutrals,
vibrant options, and combinations.
Advanced techniques for the sustainable design process
Given that the furniture industry is responsible for cutting down over a billion trees every year – sending 670,000 tonnes of waste to UK landfills,
Along with 10 million tons in the United States – Telco is seeking to promote a new way of manufacturing.
By incorporating technological innovations, their furniture design involves a circular flow from the initial design process to the final piece of furniture,
Which extends its benefits to future scenarios such as disassembly, transportation, reproduction or reuse.
To reduce environmental impact, their strategy introduces a bespoke manufacturing approach using high-precision machines.
The components fit perfectly into available spaces and were previously designed to produce only what is necessary.
Through a technical process known as nesting, advanced software optimizes the system’s ability to cut the largest possible number of panels from a single panel.
This reduces the amount of waste and increases the efficiency of using raw materials.
