Hi-Interiors launches HiBed Smart Packaging Contest now is over!

Hi-Interiors launches HiBed Smart Packaging Contest: New packaging design contest has been recently organised by Hi-Interiors and released on the site Desall.com inviting you to design a new smart and sustainable packaging for HiBed, the second smart bed generation that the company is getting ready to launch on the market.

Short description

Italian scale up Hi-Interiors, known in the global market for the launch of the technology revolution in the furniture industry, now is accpeting submissions for its HiBed Smart Packaging. The goal of the contest is the development of a new concept of smart packaging to guarantee an efficient and safe worldwide shipment of the smart bed HiBed.

Hi-Interiors is looking for a new packaging solution, which is designed to optimize the utilisation of packaging materials and for this reason they suggest the use of alternative materials to the traditional ones (wholly or partially).

Since it should be a high-quality products made in Italy and purchased worldwide, you should take into account the best protection to the components of the HiBed product, during the logistic phase in order to avoid any damage caused by shipment.

HiBed is composed of a series of parts, assembled in 15 dedicated packages, which are shipped individually. In addition, each package should be designed individually or combined in order to get a secondary function (side-product), so that it can be reused after removing internal parts.

Hibed packaging should be durable by using sustainable, innovative and performing materials and also have a competitive price.
It will be appreciated the selection of recycled materials of production waste in circular economy supply chains. The materials should be lightweight, resistant and aesthetically pleasing to the touch and to the sight.

For the correct participation in the contest, it is mandatory to present at least one packaging solution for one of the main parts of the bed; for the evaluation it will be taken into account the full design of all the elements of the packaging, especially the ones that will be concretely converted into a side-product.
