I think the first instinct for most of us when the weekend rolls in is to put on our favorite PJ’s, laze around in bed and binge watch some Netflix. This is exactly what Fabio Vinella’s latest creation promises to provide us! Designed by Hi-interiors, the HiBed is quite frankly the bed of my dreams. The second generation in their smart beds, this one is a more minimal and sleeker version of its predecessor, the HiCan. A modern take on the traditional canopied bed, the smart(er) bed is versatile and integrates effortlessly with any and all furnishing.
“The design of the HiCan and the new HiBed is a contemporary cocoon equipped with state-of-the-art technology for wellness, entertainment and health monitoring that syncs seamlessly with your smart device,” said the design firm Hi-interiors. Equipped with a built-in 4K projector that can be synced with a series of devices to binge-watch movies/TV shows on a 70-inch retractable screen, the HiBed is the epitome of in-bed relaxation. A built-in surround sound system with invisible speakers makes the bed feel more like a movie theatre. For lazy bums like me actually traveling to a multiplex to watch a movie is totally out of the question now! It’s intelligence makes it more than a bed, serving as a space you can escape to with music from any of your favorite sources! Oh, and did I forget to mention it comes along with Wifi?
But here’s where the HiBed moves beyond entertainment and focuses more on our health and everyday usage. The bed is connected to an app and monitors our sleep pattern and movements, adjusting the temperature according to our comfort. It also records body weight, air quality, and noise level to provide a foolproof check on our health. Some good news for the late risers, the HiBed comes with an inbuilt smart alarm system that wakes us up with loud recitations of the weather and daily news.
The founders of Hi-interiors Ivani and Gianni Tallarico have big plans for our living spaces. They said, “We dream of a world in which our living space will listen to us more and more and will be the key to our well-being, becoming our next and ultimate walk-in smart device.” I don’t know about anybody else, but binge-watching Netflix in a bed that especially caters to my personal needs is certainly the key to my well-being!
