What if Furniture Had Superpowers?

Hasier Larrea

With more than 54% of the world’s population now living in cities according to the U.N., many newly urbanized denizens are learning how to make do with less – especially when it comes to smaller living and working spaces. But there are still important barriers keeping us from living smaller, and we must get past them. Hasier argues that the use of robotics holds the key for making living spaces act like if they were twice or three times bigger. Downsizing in square footage does not have to mean downsizing functionality or experience anymore.
