Andrea Branzi reverses the concept of the collection as a unique technical and decorative theme, declined in several elements: his objects for Qeeboo travel in different directions, both for their identity as for construction technique, rotational or by injection, but placed together in a domestic interior to create a constantly evolving life scene.
It comes in the chrome version for the outdoor version and in gold for the indoor version.

Qeeboo is an Italian brand producing furniture and accessories created and lunched in 2016 by Stefano Giovannoni.
Its products are emotional and narrative, expressly not bourgeois but suitable for all; once created, they are entrusted to our interpretation in order to acquire a new life.
Qeeboo resumes and reinterprets in a fantastic way the icons of our imagination and gives them an unexpected original image, introducing a collection of smart, ironic and surprising products.
Extraordinary objects created under the careful direction of Stefano Giovannoni in collaboration with the most eclectic international designers, integrating different styles and characters in a playful-narrative approach.
A magical mix of technologies, inventions and industrial techniques, creating a catalog of poetic funny and hybrid objects allowing everyone to interpret and use them freely.
So Mexico, Killer or Capitol, for example, can be used in a personal way as a seat, a table or a lamp, or as a vase, a planter or a champagne cooler, allowing everyone to interpret and use them freely.
