The new CLESTRABOX application eases the design process by enabling designers to access the extensive partitioning combinations available from Clestra Hauserman – at the swipe of a fingertip.
May 5th, 2016
With the CLESTRABOX application, designers can mix and match various partitioning styles, glazes, finishes and colours available from Clestra Hauserman with the swipe of a fingertip. This allows the designer to quickly generate or revise a proposed design for the client to visualise it from all angles, and even against the actual flooring.
The ‘Augmented Reality’ function superimposes the computer-generated rendering of a partitioning on the user’s perspective of the real world. This is particularly useful for the demonstration of a proposed partitioning against a particular flooring or carpeting.
Furthermore, designers can do a screen capture of the various options to be shared with the rest of the team. A product brochure can also be accessed to find out more about the selected finishes.
The CLESTRABOX application was developed with an intention to lower the risk of communication issues between the designer and client. Rather than having to imagine the proposed look with two-dimensional swatches or samples, the client now has an actual visualisation of the design from all angles, allowing them to feel more confident with the final decision.
“In addition, the options available to the client are now no longer limited by the number of partition samples and swatches the designer or sales team can carry,” says Gilles Marino, Managing Director of Clestra Hauserman, South Asia. Clestra Hauserman is a world leader in the design, manufacture and installation of prefabricated moveable partitions.
CLESTRABOX is free and available worldwide in French and English via a smartphone or tablet.
