Creating Sustainable Living Spaces with Robotics and Design

American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Ori CEO Hasier Larrea is interviewed by ASME

Are you struggling to make the most of your small living space? If so, you're not alone. Many city dwellers face the challenge of limited space, but Ori CEO Hasier Larrea believes that robotics may be the answer to this problem. In this exclusive interview with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Larrea discusses the innovative use of robotics to create expandable apartments that give furniture and architecture superpowers.

At Ori, we’re passionate about finding solutions to the challenges faced by city dwellers. Larrea explains that by living in less square footage, you'll use less steel and concrete to build your apartment, and you'll also need less heating and cooling because you're heating and cooling less space. With Ori's Expandable Apartments, you can transform your bedroom into a whole office space with just the touch of a button, freeing up valuable space in your small living area.

While developing solutions like these is a challenging task, it's also a lot of fun. And for those of us living in small apartments, it's an exciting glimpse into a future where technology and design work together to create more affordable, sustainable, and enjoyable living spaces.
