BOSTON, March 18, 2019 — 

Ori, Inc., the leading creator of robotic interiors, today announced that its robotic furniture is incorporated into a number of apartments in The Maya, a mixed-use development in Oakland, California. The Maya will open on March 21, and residents will have the option of living with two of Ori’s products: The Ori Studio Suite, which effortlessly transforms a studio apartment into a spacious living room, comfortable bedroom, office and more; and the Ori Pocket Closet, which creates a beautiful, on-demand walk-in closet.

“Oakland remains one of the most competitive housing markets in America, and the city’s residents are always looking ways to make the most of their limited living spaces,” said Hasier Larrea, Founder and CEO of Ori. “We very much look forward to having residents of The Maya experience how Ori’s robotic furniture can help them seamlessly transform apartments to accommodate their daily activities.”

Located on the Broadway corridor near upscale Piedmont Avenue and the trendy Temescal neighborhoods, The Maya is a mixed-use development of 47 apartment units, and approximately 2,400 square feet of retail space. The Maya features multiple community spaces, and sustainable amenities like long term bike storage and solar thermal facilities.

“The Maya’s beautiful and sustainable design is the latest example of how we’re  redefining urban development,” said Matt Branagh, CEO and owner of Branagh, a development and construction company. “We are always exploring new ways to improve the lives of the the people who live in our buildings, and are thrilled our tenants will have the opportunity to benefit from the transformative living experience that comes with Ori’s products.”

Select apartments at The Maya will come equipped with:

  • Ori Pocket Closet: The Ori Pocket Closet transforms spaces effortlessly. With the touch of a button or voice command, the Pocket Closet expands to reveal storage for clothes, shoes, appliances, books, and more.

  • Ori Studio Suite: The Ori Studio Suite redefines the idea of compact urban living, simulating the functionality of multiple rooms in a single space. Along with providing ample storage, the Ori Studio Suite allows people to reconfigure their space at the touch of a button, creating a cozy sleeping room when they need it, and opening up the living area when they don’t.
