The platform enables real-time 3D rendering of a space, say a kitchen, and enables customers and designers to discuss design ideas visually and instantly. The product also has an integrated pricing engine that helps customers know the cost implications of every design change in real time.
"This (interior design) business needs collaboration between customer and designer. The customer needs to take out a few hours to meet with the designers. It is a visual subject. Our customers had to come to our experience centre," said HomeLane CEO Srikanth Iyer.
"We came up with this product to basically bring convenience. The need to meet physically is going to be eliminated and transparency will improve."
It has raised $15 million (about Rs 96 crore) so far. At SpaceCraft, a customer can look at and choose fixed furniture, loose furniture, paints, wallpapers, false ceilings and cabinets among other options.
"The basic constraint was time. We could not go to the showroom. They (HomeLane) said I can have a remote session. It was a great experience," said Antony Raj, one of HomeLane's earliest customers to use SpaceCraft.
