Rethinking the Future of Home Improvement:
Lowe’s Innovation Labs
Change in business and retail is exponential—with advancements in technology and customer desires leading the charge. At Lowe’s we embrace big, disruptive thinking so we can be ready for the future.
Lowe’s Innovation Labs isn’t your typical innovation team. We look to redefine the future of home improvement and retail by embracing not only emerging technologies but also radical new approaches to business. We research customer behavior, identify disruptive technologies, and then define and scale projects and technologies that will improve the lives of our customers and employees.
“Our team embraces the unknown and ultimately helps Lowe’s lead the pace of change by pioneering delightful experiences,” explains Bob Dimicco, VP of Lowe’s Innovation. “Ultimately, our job is to peer into the future, determine what’s possible, and help bring it to life.”
The team has pioneered immersive 3D shopping experiences, designed robotic exosuits to keep employees healthy, developed virtual reality training and product testing programs, tested robots to help with inventory management, and much more.
The Lowe’s Innovation Labs team is a unique mix of multi-disciplinary thinkers including seasoned engineers, creative producers and storytellers, and designers that bring the future to life every day.
