Robern Designer – Design Innovation at Your Fingertips

The New Robern Designer Tool Simplifies the Way to Visualize and Choose Robern Vanities, Mirrors, Medicine Cabinets and Lighting

Bristol, Penn. (January 9, 2018) – Robern, the leader in luxury styling spaces, understands that remodeling a bathroom can be an overwhelming process and today unveils a free tool—Robern Designer—that makes designing a styling space simple and fun. Robern Designer will be available March 2018.

The tool—which is first of its kind for bathroom design—empowers architects, designers, showrooms and homeowners to mix and match Robern vanities, mirrors, medicine cabinets and lighting in a virtual space that resembles their project and then visualize how all of the different design elements come together to create a beautiful finished room with more than 12.9 billion-bathroom configurations.

“People love that Robern’s modular products give them so much design flexibility, but there’s no way for them to see all of the different options without visiting several different showrooms,” said Devon George, Director of Marketing, Robern. “People want a way to see all of the Robern product options out there and then easily visualize how all of their selections will look together in a finished space. With Robern Designer, we are taking the legwork and guesswork out of bathroom design by allowing people to play around with different Robern products in a cool and interactive 3D virtual showroom that resembles their space. All of our products are right there in the tool, and users can mix and match and rearrange them as many times as they want. Once they like what they see, they can download and share the image with their showrooms and design team. Robern Designer will even automatically pull together a bill of materials that specifies exactly which products and options they need.”

To help bring Robern Designer to life, Robern has partnered with Marxent, the leader in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology for home builders, retailers, and manufacturers. Marxent’s award-winning VisualCommerce™ 3D Cloud platform allows customers to configure and visualize Robern products with photo-quality realism.

Robern Designer is so easy to use that any homeowner, designer, architect or showroom can build out their space and try different products and configurations. It approaches the design process from a variety of angles: 

  • INSPIRATION: With our guided approach, Robern Designer allows you to select the best products for your space and gives confidence that whichever pieces you select will be the perfect fit.
  • PRODUCT SELECTION: With simple menus and intuitive filters, Robern Designer will recommend the pieces that fit your space and your needs.
  • DESIGN: The simple, drag-and-drop tool lets you design your room in real-time, mixing and matching products, and seeing the results in 3D. You can even change the time of day to view the night light features.
  • ORDERING: When you’re finished, use the tool to create a bill of materials and get connected to a showroom near you or request a quote.

"Robern Designer is a great way to visualize Robern products and how they play from each other,” said Michele Alfano, founder and creative director of Michele Alfano Design. “Robern seems to have thought of everything with this tool, from features that allow you to see quotes and find the nearest showroom to the ability to save the image to your computer. It's a wonderful tool."
