Qeeboo is the Italian Next Generation furniture and accessories brand designed and launched in 2016 by designer Stefano Giovannoni
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, extraordinary design products are born with the Qeeboo brand. Emotional and narrative objects that are openly non-bourgeois and accessible to all who, once created, are entrusted to our interpretation to acquire a new life.
Qeeboo resumes and reinterprets the icons of our imagination in a fantastic way and gives them an unexpected, full of emotion and original image, introducing a collection of intelligent, ironic and surprising objects.
A magical mix of industrial technologies and techniques, together with aesthetics and invention that offer not only poetic objects, but also hybrid and fun objects such as Mexico and Killer designed by Studio Job, which can be used in a personal way as a session, a table, a lamp or a vase, a planter, a champagne cooler, allowing everyone to interpret them and use them freely.
Emotional and narrative objects expressly non-bourgeois but suitable for everyone. Once created, they are entrusted to our interpretation to acquire a new life.
