With augmented reality, this tablet app let users customize their lamp while visualizing it in the context where they will place it. In this process, users can get inspiration from pre-designed lamps and expert advise, create their own lamps, and save and compare versions before the purchase.
The app was designed following a user-centered design approach. In the early stages of the design process, an intensive user research was carried out. The feautures of the app were carefully selected to make sure the most relevant user needs were met. In this phase two qualitative studies were performed: contextual interviews to explore users’ thoughts and interests in customization products and a participatory study to gain more insights into the customization process of lamps. Finally, in order to prioritise user needs and define a final set of requirements, an online survey was run. The app was prototyped and tested in low and high fidelity levels, in 5 iterations with 16 participants.
