Hi-Interiors was founded as a
spin-off start-up in 2008.

We were young outsiders in the design scene, born in Calabria and grown as professionals within the furniture family business.


We decided to be game changers and start from a “blank sheet” in order to better exploit the HiCan revolution.

Intuition was that this product could ride the long-term trend of convergence between design and technology, defining a new path for innovation in furniture sector. In 2009, the first HiCan was presented at Milan’s Design Week.

The same year Intesa Sanpaolo has featured us in its first Start-up’s Arena among the 14 most innovative Italian start-ups.

We are proud to be the very first to take full advantage of the latest technology to redefine human interaction with their interiors.
