With IKEA, the startup will be developing the ROGNAN solution, which is more on par with its own Studio Suite product. At IKEA's 2019 Democratic Design Days, the company presented one possible configuration: with a sofa on one side and a walk-in closet on the other, the closet can compress during the day to maximize your living room space.

Ori, the Boston-based maker of robotic furniture, is on track to get its technology in front of millions of new customers.

"This mass urbanization is accelerating and creates heavily populated cities that are at the same time consuming both land and resources at an unsustainable pace", explains IKEA. "Instead of making the furniture smaller, we transform the furniture to the function that you need at that time".

For regular Joes, Ikea said it had to answer a question: "How can you utilise the square meters of your home in a better way without compromising on either function or your dreams?" "We wanted to change that". You can see a shorter video demonstration of this furniture above, but for a longer clip, you'll need to visit Ikea's official announcement page. "When you use your wardrobe, you do not need your bed etc", Strawn added.

Ready to welcome robotic furniture into your home? In the U.S., Ori units have been packaged as entertainment centers for small home theaters.

Anyone who has lived in, or has been to Asia will know that space is at a premium, so it's no surprise that the system is coming first to Japan and Hong Kong, where it will be rolled out next year, promising to increase your usable space up to eight square metres.
