Furniture has changed a lot in the last few decades. As styles develop, new innovations emerge, and the boundaries between furniture and tech begin to blur, one has to wonder what things will be like in the next five or ten years.
While we can’t predict the future of furniture, we can rustle up our favourite cutting-edge furniture pieces that may just be paving the way for the next generation of household norms. A few of these pieces may be way out of our price range, but it’s fun to dream!
Have a read through to see if you get inspired to give your living space an upgrade.
Beosound Shape speaker system
Speaker, or art? Why not both? The Beosound Shape is a modular, wall-mounted speaker system that’s available in a wide range of colours to create a custom design that delivers high quality sound. With the ability to support up to 44 individual speakers in a flexible configuration, it’s the perfect solution for any design-conscious audio lover.
Samsung Family Hub™ Fridge
Watch out, SodaStream – the fridge just made a play for coolest kitchen appliance. With a touch screen on the door, the Samsung Family Hub™ Fridge is a whole lot more than just a fridge. Serious integration features let you set up a digital message board for the family, catch up on TV, plan your monthly calendar, get some new recipes, make your shopping list, and place your order online from the door of your fridge. A multi-finger swipe on the screen will even let you look inside without opening the door!
Sisyphus side table
If you’ve ever dreamed of a coffee table you could watch for hours, look no further! Part furniture and part kinetic art, the Sisyphus has a bed of sand set beneath a pane of glass, which is slowly traced into a pattern by a magnetically controlled steel ball. A companion app on your phone can control the pattern and the colour of the LED lights so you can have a different design every day!
Tonal worout system
The Tonal system takes a home gym to a whole new level! This wall-mounted workout station is fitted with adjustable arms and pulley handles that can offer up to 90kg of resistance. The touch screen can walk you a wide range of full-body workouts suitable for anyone, from beginners to seasoned pros, with sensors to make sure you’re using the correct form. Built-in Artificial Intelligence will dynamically adjust your workouts to suit your strength and keep you breaking just the right amount of sweat. Sadly, Tonal is currently based in the USA, but you can register here to get the scoop on international shipping as soon as it’s available.
ENERQi invisible wireless charger
As wireless charging increases in popularity, some bright minds have found a way for it to integrate seamlessly with the modern home. After doing away with the charging cable, it’s only natural to tuck the charging pad out of sight, too! The ENERQi mounts under the surface of your choice to deliver fast, contactless charging to any smartphone and other wireless charging-enabled device that’s placed on top. The only type of surface it won’t work with is metal, so it’s perfect for most desks and tables.
With a sleek design and high-tech functionality, the HiBed is the bed of your dreams! This next generation of smart bed was conceived by the Italian architect and designer Fabio Vinella. The canopy frame has a built-in 4K projector, retractable 70-inch screen and ambient lighting. Sensors will also track sleeping patterns, air temperature, noise levels and more to help you get the best night’s sleep possible.
