ROGNAN robotic furniture for small space living

Cities are booming and at the same time living spaces are shrinking. Together with Ori, IKEA is exploring flexible and innovative solutions that empower people to have big dreams for small homes, introducing ROGNAN robotic furniture. Sounds like science fiction? Well, you’ll be the judge.

More and more people are living and moving into cities where approximately an extra 1.5 million people join the urban population every week. This mass urbanisation is accelerating and creates heavily populated cities that are at the same time consuming both land and resources at an unsustainable pace. IKEA wants to create a better everyday life for the many people, enabling them to create their dream homes in small spaces. In order to do this, IKEA had to answer the question: How can you utilise the square meters of your home in a better way without compromising on either function or your dreams?

To find the answer, IKEA is collaborating with Ori, an American startup that has developed robotic furniture for modern living and has been challenging the limitations of square metres in living spaces – now introducing ROGNAN. With ROGNAN as a robotic furniture solution for small space living, people will be able to turn small spaces into smart spaces that have all the comfort and convenience of a home.

More information about ROGNAN will follow during the summer 2019.
