HiHack launches the Call4Solutions for companies and tech startups willing to open a dialogue and create synergies to rapidly plan a return to safety in the post covid-19 workplaces while integrating design and technology.
HiHack is the Open Innovation program of Hi-Interiors dedicated to the technological evolution of design, now in its second edition. This year’s goal is to scout for and select new solutions, products, technologies for the coworking spaces of the DesignTech Hub which will be built at MIND Milano Innovation District, in the area that hosted Expo 2015.Learn more on the DesignTech Hub
HiHack was born with the goal of strategically supporting companies in the industry and respond to new challenges created by the impact of transformative technologies such as IoT, Ai and Blockchain, thus offering ideas and tangible design inspirations to face the transformation of one of the sectors with the highest potential of digital transformation.
Hi-Interiors was the first to develop the concept of Internet of Furniture and the concept of smart furniture. Hi-Interiors is now committed to accelerating the technological evolution in the sector, with the goal of improving the quality of life in the spaces we live and work in daily, collaborating with the biggest players in the industry and activating dynamics of open innovation.
The call is divided into two phases: first a call 4 solutions for startups and companies, in order to identify the mix of design and technology solutions;
next a call 4 design aimed at designers, to transform the resulting briefs from the collaboration between startups and companies into design ideas.
The goal is to furnish the DesignTech coworking flagship spaces that will be hosted at the MIND Village, which is set to open in October 2020. The solutions selected with this call will become part of the DesignTech Product Book Workplaces for MIND.
We are selecting startups with enabling technologies (IoT, AI, Big Data, VR, Blockchain, 3D Printing, Nanotechnologies, etc.) for the transformation of the workplace.
We are selecting companies in the industry able to offer products and solutions for the workplace and who care about sustainability, wellness and health, connectivity and smart working, flexibility and transformability of spaces in order to meet the needs of the contemporary office.
If you are a leader in the design industry, open your company to a community of innovators.
HiHack facilitates a first tangible collaboration, supporting the planning ability of the companies interested in embracing the challenge of technological innovation on the theme “future workplaces”.
All the products, solutions and technologies selected will become part of DesignTech coworking space and will represent a concrete solution of the Product Book Workplaces in the post Covid-19 world.
