Yves Behar and MIT Media Lab launch robotic furniture

by Team ELLE DECOR India Oct 18, 2016

MIT Media Lab spin-off Ori partners with acclaimed designer Yves Behar of Fuseproject to unveil a family of intelligent, responsive systems combining robotics, architecture and design to enable effortless transformation of interior spaces. At the touch of a button, the system can transform a single studio space into a one-bedroom apartment, suited with a bedroom, living room and office, all connected to any smart-home ecosystem. This launch heralds an era in which interior space will dynamically and almost magically conform to our activities, dramatically improving its efficiency and utility and our experience with a promise to liberate urban design, provide new user experiences, and unlock the potential of the places we increasingly want to live, work and play.
