When you think of canopy beds the phrase "cutting edge design" may not be one of the first to come to mind. But these days modern furniture designers are pushing the limits and transforming stuffy old traditions into amazing new products for those seeking clean lines and high-tech options.
Meet the "Hi-Can" - from Italy's Deta Design IT. Also known as the "High Fidelity Canopy Bed," this ultra-modern piece is more than just a bed, it's self contained entertainment center. It features state of the art surround sound, reading lights, a computer and gaming console, a projector complete with a large display panel. This bed has all the home entertainment features you could ask for, but if it's perfect relaxation you're seeking you can get that, too. An automated system allows customization of lighting, bed angles, built-in blinds, and screen settings to the users preference.
The bed was created by Deta's off-shoot interiors division, Hi Interiors. According to the company's Website, the division's mission is to "move in new directions of research in design field: not just pure design research, but searching the best integration of existing technology with design to improve the quality of home life." To that end, Deta plans to roll out a series of products like the Hi-Can that merge furniture, interiors and technology.
