The Umami Visualizer was made to support Steelcase’s Umami Lounge and assist in showcasing it’s modularity and wide selection of materiality offered. This tool was created for and is currently used by salespeople, customers, and designers who want to quickly mock up a unique space in a matter of minutes. This application was tailored to support touch screen devices as well as traditional mouse and keyboard users.
This application allows users to drag and drop Umami components into a space where they snap together and arrange themselves according to the product guidelines. After configuring an arrangement users can then customize the product’s materials. A wide selection of fabrics are available and each side of the Umami can have a unique fabric. After building a scene users have the option of filling out their email inside of the app. Once completed, users will receive an email containing an image of their scene as well as the components used.
