20-20 Technologies, the world leader in 3-D interior design and furniture manufacturing software, has launched the latest version of its professional design solution, 20-20 Design 10.3, which allows designers to easily add task and accent lighting to kitchen designs with a new Lighting Wizard.
Adding lighting to a design can be a complex task, according to the company. There are many variables to consider such as placement, electrical components, and cost estimation. For some dealers and designers, the time investment to understand all the complexities has not previously been worthwhile. However, there is significant demand from the end customer for integrated, green and cost-efficient lighting to be included as part of their dream kitchen right from the conceptual design stage.
The 20-20 Design Lighting Wizard solves this challenge by eliminating the complexity of adding task and accent lighting to designs. With a few clicks, designers can now show multiple alternative lighting solutions to customers with renderings of how the room will look in real life.
“With the lighting wizard, designers can add another dimension to their designs that will not only impress their clients, but also make it easy to order the lights directly in 20-20 Design using the Lighting Report feature and order fulfillment ability of LiveOrder —something that was next to impossible to do before,” said product manager Roberto Ferrer. “At 20-20, we always strive to improve the designer, customer and manufacturer retail ecosystem and we believe the latest release of 20-20 Design is an excellent example of this continued effort.”
The Lighting Wizard supports puck, rigid strip and flexible strip lighting with products from industry leading cabinet and kitchen lighting providers. Lighting can be added creatively over or under wall cabinets, inside wall cabinets, or on toe kicks. The Lighting Wizard is now available in North America, with other regions to be added in the future, according to the company.
