In our final profile to celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re headed back to Scotland by way of Venezuela to introduce Claudia Padula, whose presence and passion transform a space, both literally and figuratively. She is blending the worlds of interior design and Web3 to create a new experience for her firm’s clientele, while juggling motherhood and being a co-founder with her husband. Claudia was part of our ONE Tech Hub cohort in Aberdeen, Scotland.
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in an Italian family — a super loud and passionate mix. As co-founder and Creative Director at CP Concept Store & Design Studio, I leverage state-of-the-art gaming technology to offer our customers immersive digital interactions. We are developing an innovative online platform that enables our customers to experience immersive 3D, AR & VR with fully embedded home products and virtual spaces without downloading any app, a unique ‘try before you buy’ experience within reach. Imagine CP as a test drive, but instead of testing a car before you buy it, you are testing the design and functionality of home products and spaces.
Interior Design is all about textures and feeling, and I love it. However, the reality is that as a consequence, the Interior Design industry is one step behind in Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality adoption compared to other creative industries. There’s still a lot we can learn, which is exciting and also a great opportunity. At CP, we are accelerating the transfer of skills from the media and entertainment sector to create a better experience for our customers. We make it easy and fun to buy home products or renovate spaces. By helping people take control of their environment and how they feel about it, we will positively influence their physical health, as well as their emotional state of mind and productivity.
