Boston-based startup Ori Living’s multifunctional studio suite created a buzz last year, and this time around, they are making rounds in the furniture industry with their Pocket Closet and Cloud Bed. Adding modern technology in furniture design, these are smart furniture pieces that will help a lot in small space living.
The Ori Pocket Closet is ideal for people wanting more storage space in less. On the other hand, the Ori Cloud Bed retracts up to the ceiling, freeing up living space underneath.
Hasier Larrea, CEO and founder of Ori Living said;
As urban populations continue to grow, society must find ways of making increasingly small living and working spaces provide better experiences and at the same time be more functional, affordable, efficient and sustainable. The Ori Collection will show the world how robotics allow us to see space differently, and provide compelling solutions for adapting urban spaces to us and our daily activities. The Ori Pocket Closet, Ori Cloud Bed, and Ori Studio Suite each demonstrate that you no longer need a lot of square footage to make small spaces both functional and comfortable.
Ori Pocket Closet
With the touch of a button, this robotic furniture unit expands to reveal storage and contracts when you want back the living space. There are sufficient enough shelves for clothes, shoes, and other accessories. It even has built-in lighting, USB ports and outlets, a drop-down desk and a TV nook.
Control the Ori Pocket Closet using the onboard control panel, through companion mobile app, or by voice commands to Google Home or Amazon Alexa. Transforming on-demand, it is a cool furniture unit that gives a glimpse of future living. It seems to be perfect for people living in cramped apartments.
Starting at $1,950, the Ori Pocket Closet is available in three different sizes, with options for single or double moving part configurations. A limited edition of closets in white and oak is currently available for US customers, with additional colors coming in 2019.
Ori Cloud Bed
Designed by MIT professor Kent Larson, the Ori Cloud Bed is a ceiling retractable bed, which rises up to fix into the ceiling when not in use, leaving behind a cozy sofa to use during the day.
The Ori Cloud Bed can be controlled using voice commands to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, via the companion mobile app, or with onboard control panel. The most interesting thing is that doesn’t look like an eyesore on the ceiling.
The Ori Cloud Bed will come in king and queen models, and will be available starting in 2019.
