Paul Barratt, the managing director of Karndean Designflooring, said: “We understand a product sample is not always enough to help architects, interior designers and contractors decide which of our floors will look best in their commercial or retail scheme.” He added, “Seeing really is believing. That’s why our AR app will soon become a vital tool during the specification process.”
Commercial users can download Karndean’s AR app from the App Store. However, to launch this app, users need to download a ‘marker’ from Karndean’s website.
