With the information age coming to an end, the augmented age is posing challenges to the future of the interior design discipline. Although the immediate concern revolves around the mass-produced design applications, ‘one click interiors’, and the lack of personal style as a victim of globalised trends, the realisation of Augmented Reality is challenging the core ingredient of interior design, the physical space. The perception of space is being re-invented allowing for an overhaul of ‘home’ as a defining feature. Inhabitation is no longer controlled by the rigidness of materiality, while the future of locality and memory is questionable. Subsided by the flexibility of a ‘drop-down menu’ offering limitless options that currently are considered utopian, the parameter of creativity and design are becoming variables to well-orchestrated algorithms. With both elements, ‘interior’ and ‘design’ being challenged, the philosophy of the discipline must be adapted to survive within the new computation system. If 'physical' space is being replaced by ‘digital’, how is this affecting our perception? Is this new ‘space perception’ enabling people with physical or mental limitations to create their new world-reality? How is social interaction and human behaviour adjusted to the new digital reality?
