It has been recently shown that modern technologies are evolving faster than ever before in human history and dreams from sci-fi are becoming reality. Scientist and Technology companies have always been excellent in applying technology to our personal devices and spaces, but there has been little progress in technologies that can create positive and meaningful experiences within our public spaces. Gira as a client and company specialising in domestic technology has asked for a design of a showroom of future living within five to ten years.
Consumer electronics have become more significant in the way we experience our life and spaces than ever before. 2015 was the year of consumer electronics, and a great variety of products have emerged in the market creating the potential to change the way we experience our interior spaces. Recent media coverage has generated considerable research and consumer interest in the field of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The purpose of this study is to illustrate the need for a change in how we think about the way we work and how we design our office environment. Few researchers have addressed the impact of VR and AR on the way we work, and even less research has been done on how this technology will change the working environment around us. The objective of this study is to explore the perfect integration of AR and VR into our personal workspace and to address some common issues in office space such as privacy and distraction from a task thru smart materials, wearable technology and design solutions. This project is designed for Gira and their headquarters in Sabadell.
