We design, develop and deliver immersive 360° domes, cylinders, and all of the enabling technologies.
Stepping inside an Igloo immersive space is a bit like stepping inside a giant VR headset. And, because anything up to 750 people can get inside, it is always a shared experience. In our ten-year history, we have worked on several hundred assignments for many of the world’s biggest brands. Based in the UK countryside, Igloo also has offices in London, the USA (both in the New York metro area and Los Angeles) and Canada, and we are planning to open in other locations around the world.
Igloo benefits from a strong leadership team, bringing together skills and experience in technology, business, sales and financial management.

Wearing a VR headset can be a solitary experience. For some people, it can also be an uncomfortable experience.
With Shared VR, Igloo takes any VR or 360° content, puts it in a space that anyone can use, and makes it sharable among team members, stakeholders and clients. This means it becomes possible to:
Because everyone can see what each other is looking.
Because you can make eye contact and read facial expressions.
Brief team members
Because you can easily talk them through the VR content.
In our 10+ year track record, Igloos have been used by 100s of clients across many different sectors.
So, please, get in touch to tell us about your ideas and how Igloo can bring them to life.
