Qeeboo - an Italian brand with an extraordinary personality

Qeeboo is a brand founded by Stefano Giovannoni. Giovannoni is currently one of the most respected and sought-after designers, who enjoys not only great fame, but also recognition. He has won a number of prestigious awards and accolades such as Design Plus, Forum Design, ISH award in 2003, Good Design Award 2010, as well as New York Interior Design 2012.

Everything you need to know about the Qeeboo brand

Giovannoni decided to create a company that is not for profit, but for design freedom that will allow him and other world-renowned artists to express themselves by creating unique products. Giovannoni himself says that Qeeboo was established to bring together thought, vision and, above all, emotion. The juxtaposition is intended to create an atmosphere in which artists and designers working with the brand feel at ease and comfortable. According to Giovannoni, only then are true masterpieces created.

The goal behind the Qeeboo brand is to create products inspired by people's stories. Custom design, which is the result of mixing together pop, classical, as well as individual improvisations on a given theme, has meant that Qeeboo is now inspiring other brands not to lock themselves into a rigid framework. 

Who is Stefano Giovannoni?

Speaking of the Qeeboo brand, it is worth introducing the figure of its founder a little more. Giovannoni began his career in the world of interior design already in college. Almost from time immemorial he was interested in designing and creating aesthetic structures. Therefore, no one was surprised that he decided to study architecture. His choice fell on Florence.

Giovannoni was good at what he did, thanks to which he was quickly noticed by the staff. This is how he got his start as a lecturer. His outstanding projects quickly became recognized, and he began teaching at other universities as well (including the University del Progetto di Reggio Emilia and the University of Genoa). 

Over the course of his career to date, he has had the opportunity to create not only individual designs signed with his name, but also take part in numerous collaborations with brands such as Simens, Samsung, Fiat, L'oreal, Magis, Nestle, Lavazza, NTT, Pulsar, Artsana. As a versatile designer, in addition to applied design, he is also involved in architecture and interior design.

What distinguishes Giovanonni from other world-famous designers is first and foremost his sublime sense of humor, which can easily be seen in almost every product of his design. In addition to his characteristic playfulness, his designs conceal something else - a soul and extraordinary precision that delights every design lover

Qeeboo brand philosophy

As we mentioned, the main goal of the Qeeboo brand is to create products inspired by the natural needs of people. It is people, their stories, their needs and their character that is the biggest inspiration for the brand's founder. Qeeboo focuses on originality and original design. Although at first it may seem that the products in their collection rely mainly on loose and unrestrained form, it is worth clearly emphasizing that all the people working on the creation of their range pay special attention to rigorous care and precision workmanship.

All modern furniture and accessories from Qeeboo are meant to arouse emotions in their customers, and make them surround themselves with a uniquely arranged space. Qeeboo products differ from classic design with an innovative vision - they are a bridge between reality and the mysterious world of imagination. Despite the distinctive design, all the components of the collections offered by Qeeboo are unusual, but their premise is versatility - in practice, this means that their products will work well in almost any style. Extravagant designs are often contrasted with subdued colors achieving the effect of universality.
