U&US Home design studio from Godrej works on the unique concept of involving customers in designing the furniture and interiors solutions for their dream homes. Today’s consumers are tech-savvy, living fast lifestyles and value the buying. The process of getting home furniture and interiors done is often tedious, cumbersome, laborious and time-consuming. Customers face a daunting task on deciding on furniture lay outing, designing, material selection etc. 
                                                      

At U&US Design Studio they have eased these pains by helping customers perform all the related activities in a very simple way. The entire journey of the customer is activity based. At their recently launched studio all these activities are brought alive with the aid of various digital stations created in an innovative manner.


Inside U & Us Design studio - Rotating wheel with miniature home models are enticing.
Touch screen in the center of wheel helps play the U&Us concept film and customers can browse through previously Exploration Wheel. Mood board selection is done by customers which helps the designer understand the customers' tastes and styles.
2 D room layout is done by customer on the touch screen followed by layout with the help of miniature furniture model placement activity (customer can scan layouts/work on ideal layouts)
The layout created can be visualized in 3D.



“Color Visualizer” is a station where the color scheme selection of the home is done by the customers themselves. (It’s a unique technology which being patented by U&Us)
This fun based activity helps customer shortlist on the various colors schemes of their home interior elements like wall color, laminate, fabric, Wood polish & flooring with the help of hexagon shaped color cubes.
Customers have a choice of going ahead with a preset color scheme formulated by a color expert or can customize according to their taste and choice.
State of the art 3d visualization software helps the customers visualize their own homes, take walk through inside the rooms.
Customers can still edit things in real time (eg. Color, furniture placement etc) if they feel like before finalizing the details.
                                   


Proto typing area is a station where customers can create low fidelity models/ proto types with paper, thermocol etc to explain any concept / design which they are not able to express through Prototyping area. So unlike any buying experience, U&Us has created a unique customer-centric, playful experience for the customer to co-create his dream home. U & Us wants the consumers to play an active role in making their signature home dreams come true. With co-creating their own customized furniture enabled by innovative, experiential technology.
