Meet the $40K HiBed smart home theater
bed, featuring built-in 4K projector,
70-inch screen and surround sound
speakers, along with biometric sensors.
By Jason Knott
IS THE BEDROOM the next
big location where wellness
and home theater collide? If
Hi-Interiors, an Italian design
company has anything to
do about it, the answer is
definitely yes.
The company unveiled the
latest version of its HiBed
smart bed last year during
Milan Design Week as the
solution to bringing home
theater to the bedroom,
along with smart technology
that monitors sleeps and
other metabolic functions.
The company is still in
start-up mode, and to date
the smart home theater bed
has only been installed in a
few places, including a hotel
lobby, but the concept is
intriguing as it could open up
the ability for dealers to sell
many more home theaters
in both master suites and in
secondary bedrooms.
The four-poster design
of the home theater bed
looks like a regular, albeit
ornate bed, but it hides a
retractable 70-inch screen,

4K projector, retractable
side screens for privacy, and
multiple speakers. According
to various published
reports, the company makes
several different models,
ranging from its initial
introduction at $13,800
to the current $40,300
version. (Note: Outreach
from CE Pro to Hi-Interiors
to get more specifics on
the projector, screen and
loudspeaker models went
unanswered.)
The all-in-one design
of the home theater bed,
dubbed HiBed, certainly eases
the problems integrators
often encounter in bedroom
installations where the TV
is placed across the room or
requires a lift either dropping
down from the ceiling
or up from the floor at the
footboard of the bed.
Hi-Interiors was launched
in 2008 by co-founders Ivan
Tallarico, CEO, and Gianni
Tallarico, COO. According
to a report on the HiBed
from CNN, the solution
The solution from Italian start-up Hi-Interiors enables dealers
to highlight home entertainment's wellness benefits.
offers dimmable lighting,
an adjustable base, motorized
blackout curtains,
voice control and a built-in
W-Fi connection. The bed
monitors the movements
of the person in the bed
and " automatically adjusts
the temperature according
to his or her preferences, "
per the report. Additionally,
the report notes, " the bed's
personalized concierge service
starts when the person
wakes up by providing a
smart clock, weather updates
and traffic information. "
From the wellness perspective,
the bed is fitted
with biometric monitors to
track a user's weight.
Meanwhile, it's not the
first bed to incorporate high
technology, and the wellness
category is a natural fit for
more companies to design
solutions for the space since
sleep is such an important
element. Bryte is making a
CEDIA channel push with its
smart restorative bed, and
Ergomotion showcased its
wellness technology-laden
smart bed options at this
year's Digital CES.
On the home theater
side, we've seen Rayva
develop turnkey " wellness
rooms " that marry home
entertainment retreats with
biophilic elements, so integrators
are already pitching
the media room for providing
wellbeing.
