HiHack: a call to design the future

The final phase of the Call4Design promoted by HiHack is starting: contestants can present their ideas and projects for the workplace of the future until 20 July

The 2020 edition of HiHack, the Open Innovation program created by Hi interiors, an Italian company specializing in the creation of hi-tech design products, is very close to the end. Hi interiors is also the promoter of DesignTech, a new Hub in the MIND Milan Innovation District, supporting the use of advanced technology in the furniture sector with highly innovative design projects and products. Until 20 July 2020, designers and creatives can promote their ideas and projects interpreting the concepts of tomorrow’s offices created by the companies and start-ups that participated in the first phase of the competition with the Call4Solutions.

The winning solutions will be prototyped and located in the coworking spaces of the DesignTech Hub, whose inauguration is scheduled for October 2020.

The Call4Design launched by HiHack, conceived by Hi-Interiors, is addressed to Italian and foreign talents interested in developing future office models: a design research that, in this period of global health emergency, is more necessary than ever. Not only has the Sars-Cov2 virus changed people’s habits, it has also questioned the safety of the social and working spaces we usually use.
