The tool, which allows you to experiment with a selection of wallpapers in your own room, was created during John Lewis’s JLAB Accelerator Programme. The idea sparked when our CEO David Levine was presented with a choice of wallpaper samples for his living room. Struggling to visualise how the room might look and convinced he couldn’t be the only person unable to bridge the ‘imagination gap’ David set out to find a solution.
John Lewis’s innovation programme, which helps startups shape retail experiences of the future during a 12 week programme, kick-started the DigitalBridge journey. It was a real vote of confidence from one of the biggest retailers in the world, and the investment has allowed us to focus our research and development in computer vision and deep learning for the retail sector.
Since taking part in 2016, we’ve continued on our mission to help anyone design beautiful living spaces for themselves and their family, no matter how little design experience they have. Alongside building our visualiser tool, we’ve started to focus our attention on the underserved bathroom visualisation space. Our cutting-edge technology allows individuals to capture, design and visualise their new room, which we’ll be rolling out into kitchens later this year.
Whether you’re looking to redecorate your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, watch this DigitalBridge space!
