hi-Fun is a company, started-up by four young Italian entrepreneurs inspired by the love of music, and constantly travelling for work between the United States and China.
Our love of music, and its constant presence in our lives has always been a source of inspiration and joy. The concept of hi-Fun is therefore built on the objective of bringing your music with you wherever you go, being able to listen to your music wherever you are. Hi-Fun is music for you: for when you travel, for your commute, for your well-being. Think about a long wait at Charles de Gaulle de Paris, or a cold Berlin train platform, or the long passageways that connect Washington's International Airport to the domestic flights for New York. Picture yourself waiting or walking in that noisy hassle, surrounded by a cacophony of voices, press Pause on the outside interference and then press play to hear only your favourite music. Is an iPod enough to provide this experience? An iPod is nice but often not enough.
hi-Fun creates accessories that render listening to music an even more original, and multi-sensorial experience. With hi-Sleep, listening to music becomes the prelude to a dream you can experience anywhere and anytime by comfortably leaning your head on a soft pillow. With hi-Bomb, it becomes an ensemble of notes and melodies to share with others. While hi-Brick brings back childhood memories in the shape of a familiar toy. After our initial inspiration, we found ourselves on the phone to Chinese industrialists Jon Wu and Mr. Miaghi, with whom we would never have anticipated conversing about music, talking about how to merge speakers and headsets with everyday wear, Italian design and fashion. Merging our post-modern need for continuous music with their technical experience in continuous production, hi-Fun has become a reality.
Let hi-Fun play the soundtrack to your life!
Music is to me the sound of waves crashing against the hull of my sailing boat « Rolly Go », my passion.
This job is related to Economics and Business, which I studied at Università Cattolica, in Milan. hi-Fun is a company started-up by three friends who are based in Italy but live around the world. A world where Asia and the United States are interconnected through the iPod. I believe ideas are more important than money.
Our ideas are innovative, and as young entrepreneurs we have what it takes to be successful. My father taught me to believe in the power to create things and with that we are sure to succeed.
I travel a lot, I am constantly on the move and not always I enjoy it. I often shut myself away listening to music.
I have a playlist for nearly each mood that may come.
I would never leave without making sure that I have a fully loaded ipod and a set of great earphones and speakers, ready for any eventual random use. Listening to music is a true passion of mine, I simply love it, I love to live it and to travel with it.
I truly believe that Hi-fun not only is the realization of a dream but more a global mission: to create something that is mine, that is ours, that helps people like us to not feel lonely and left alone with their thoughts.
I studied law (jurisprudence) at the University of Milan and my workshops and projects were very different from what I had imagine I am confronted today.
I believe in us, in our ideas and in the power of music in a world that is more and more dynamic with everyday. Indeed, together the three of us, have manage to combine travelling and music, commitments and passions, dreams and reality… and all this thanks to Hi-fun.
My real passion has always been cinema.
When I finished my degree in media and before I started this adventure with hi-Fun, I worked on film making sets as a runner who couldn't even make the coffee machine work. First as a second assistant and finally as a first assistant director.
But than an old friend of mine came along and asked me if I wanted to be his partner in a strange music gadgets company.
I've always been a Optmistic person who thinks that Opportunites must be taken when they knock at your door, so I didn't let this one slip away and futher we go on the better it looks.
Growing up together with the dream to make a company that was our own, when we first saw the musical pillow we knew it would make for a perfect start-up.
We named it hi-Sleep. Simple, original and funky idea that could make people smile.
At times we seem to forget the importance of music in our lives, it has the power to relax us, to keep us company, to transmit energy, to make us laugh and make us cry. It lets feelings flow along its notes and transports our thoughts along its melody.
hi-Fun creates stylish products that bring music to the people everywhere, at any time, and in any circumstance.
With a degree in Economics from Bocconi University in Milan and a specialization in Internationalization Strategies, I have worked at the conception and birth of the hi-Fun start-up, and am still a partner today in this exciting adventure.
