What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Pocket Closet

15 Comments

I am always kind of obsessed with tiny living. From the very beginning, I’ve been interested in space-saving designs. Maybe it’s because I’m a New Yorker, maybe it’s because I’m a clothes hound, most likely, it’s the combination. At any rate, when the ad below played before something I was binge watching on YouTube, I actually deliberately clicked the link. This is a big step for me. I am generally every advertiser’s nightmare. However, click I did, and I’m thrilled!

This is the M.I.T. engineer-designed Ori Pocket Closet. Robotic furniture is here, and girl, it’s fantastic! And if that’s not amazing enough, it can be ordered on their website and you can install it yourself! 

The limited edition closets are available in white and oak, and include space for clothes, shoes, and accessories on the inside, and entertainment center, bookcase, and/or desk space on the outside. The Ori Pocket Closet can be opened using voice activation with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, via the Ori app, or with the Ori Square control panel that’s built into the closet. 

“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.” -Hasier Larrea, CEO and founder of Ori

And while you’re turning your apartment into a fantastic sci fi set, why not throw in the Ori Cloud Bed which lifts up to the ceiling when you’re not using it, revealing built-in living room furniture. If you’d like an all-in-one solution, Ori also makes something called the Studio Suite, which does all of the above in a single, mind-blowing unit. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

You can learn more about spend all your money on Ori’s amazing products on their website.

  2. The price is up there, but not stratospheric. We could use a couple . . .it’s a good thing they don’t ship to Greece . . .

    • I started making the bed every day when we were living in the tiny apartment. We’ve just kind of carried it over, even though we’re home now and can close the bedroom door without cutting our living space in half.

  4. I would have loved this when we had a multipurpose room that was usually a study/playroom but also had to serve as a guest bedroom.

  5. Having just purchased a pricey set of box springs and mattress for my daughter, that bed does not look comfortable. However, if it flies up to the ceiling, I could be a fan. The closet set up is amazing.

  6. Wow! I used to install closet systems…this is a NEW one for me! I love it! I can definitely use this system! I’m about to look at pricing now….I’m sure it’s expensive!

  7. YEah..single moving piece is $2950 + 450 install if you want it installed by others. Double one is $3950 plus the 450…so it IS expensive, but I can definitely see a great market for the product – it’s awesome! Gives me some ideas of how to make one myself!

    • I had similar thoughts, though Beloved and I are pretty good at building serviceable pieces, but we have reached the stage where we are happy to pay people to build things for us when we want them to look nice. The things, not the people.
