Talking Furniture is a piece of digital wizardry. It is about the memory of the product and that of the life taking place around it. The idea emerged from point #5 of our Manifesto: 'We plan the solid to breathe life into the void'. You can now scan a LAGO NFC interactive microchip with your smartphone, to start a dialogue with a LAGO table and get basic information, like product name, materials and designer, but also to have more intriguing experiences, like storing the stories that have bubbled up around the table, using images, texts and/or sounds that then become part of an 'emotional diary' for remembering the wonder of a special few moments in time. Thanks to this same idea, you will also find recipes when you 'swipe' the NFC tag of a LAGO kitchen and, in the tag of a Kids&Young LAGO bed, fairy tales to help your child fall asleep. If you are staying in a B&B or hotel furnished with LAGO products, you will get suggestions for background music, tourist information and other material linked to the product or its context. LAGO NFC is a new experience for getting more out of all kinds of furniture, in both public and private spaces. With this project, LAGO is the first furniture company in the world to create an important and interactive experience connected to the Internet of Things.
Each update of the LAGO DESIGN app features improvements in speed and reliability.
