When it comes to the carbon footprint of a guestroom space in a hotel, the size of the space is of course critical. I heard today from a PR person informing me that Marriott has partnered with Ori, a robotics and architecture startup, to reimagine guestroom space. The announcement of the partnership was made at CES.
The two brands will be working together as part of Marriott’s Design Lab to completely transform the way customers experience travel. Integrating Ori products and technology into Marriott guestrooms will allow travelers flexibility and adaptability and new kinds of rooms and experiences. This is the first large hospitality partnership for Ori, marking a new era in transformable space in the industry.
Picture a guestroom with transformable furniture that allows one to essentially create two rooms out of one. Imagine a bed that lifts into the ceiling to reveal a table for dinner or desk for work—all at the touch of a button, sound of your voice or swipe on your phone.
