In this project, we used generative AI tools to design a line of concept beds called "Pandabodes," which were inspired by the appearance and characteristics of pandas. Our objective is to better understand how AI tools can support organizations in the process of generating product ideas.
The prompt we gave the text-to-image model for the creation of Pandabodes was: "A bed in the shape of a giant panda, made of bamboo with a soft white and black faux fur cover. The headboard is shaped like a panda face, with round ears, a small black nose, and big black eyes. The bed also includes a set of panda-shaped throw pillows and a matching duvet cover with a white and black panda print. The bed is surrounded by a cozy bedroom setting, with a nightstand and lamp next to it, and a window with a view of a peaceful outdoor scene." This prompt was first used to generate the below designs for panda-inspired bids using Midjourney. While the images depicted in this context are highly realistic, they do not present any particularly novel visual features or appearances in regards to the bed.
