Hooker Furnishings Partners with Science in Design as Sponsor

Hooker Furnishings has partnered with Science in Design as a key sponsor for the inaugural Design, Art & Science Symposium at the upcoming High Point Market. As part of the programming, the company will host a series of educational and experiential events in its new Designer Theatre located in Showplace.

The design-focused series will offer evidence-based educational sessions from leading academics and scholars on how beauty, nature, and design can improve health through the study of neuroaesthetics.

“As we continue to develop educational programming for our new Designer Theatre at Market, we are eager to launch this collaboration with Science in Design this fall,” said Kenzi Reddick, vice president of marketing, interior design and brand management for Hooker Furnishings.

“Representing leading design firms and educational institutions from across the country, this series will offer tools and insights that our partners can use to make positive impacts on their businesses.

Taking place in Hooker Furnishings’ showroom located on the third floor of Showplace, the events include two educational sessions presented by Science in Design faculty members as well as the debut of an exclusive experiential event, called iMotions, that uses biosensors to analyze emotional reactions to an interior space.

“A first at High Point Market, our iMotions technology experience center will provide visitors with the opportunity to interact with cutting edge tools that can help guide their design process,” said Mike Peterson founder of Science in Design.

“Through the use of eye tracking and facial expression analysis, iMotions provides an ‘emotional spellcheck’ for not only interior spaces, but also renderings and marketing materials.”

“Leading consumer brands are using this technology to better understand customer experiences and product performance by measuring visual attention to key messages in product advertisements, placement and branding, package design, visual merchandising and more,” added Linda Kafka, co-founder of Science in Design.
