A New Generation Brand



qeeboo - Il Dolce Stil Novo



During the 14 th century, a small group of young poets from Florence (Guido Cavalcanti, Guido Guinizzelli, Lapo Gianni, Dante Alighieri, Cino da Pistoia) were the first to stop the Middle Age with its dogmatic and useless theologies in order to talk about Love, about Women (which may have never even existed, just like Petrarca’s Laura), about their diversity from the Byzantines, becoming witnesses of a generation without a clear destiny… By inventing the Women, they also invented the New Men.



Dante, the Father, coined for them this magical name, which changed not only poetry but also the history of the world… As a matter of fact, all great things always come from little ones, apparently useless and redundant; from a title and sometimes by chance. The Dolce Stil Novo of Design is founded on a figurative and narrative matrix, completely different from the one of the commercial markets, but maybe even more invasive than that, herald of a new feminine and masculine sensitivity: less testosterone, more irony, more simplicity. An innocent Design and therefore braver.


Manifesto



qeeboo is a new way of manufacturing and distributing design. qeeboo is an italian brand that, strong in its italian way of thinking about design, opens up to the international market, with a focus on reaching people’s hearts.


qeeboo, unlike traditional companies is not for the bourgeois, it moves on a new business model, choosing the web as its key point and then using it to shorten the supply chain. qeeboo produces objects meant to be delivered to a large audience, combining high levels of quality with low costs.



qeeboo and its designers move through a narrative approach coming out from their expressive language, having in common a figurative research that is an important element of communication, in order to create iconic objects that express great emotional power. qeeboo is an italian brand created by stefano giovannoni who called andrea branzi, front, richard hutten, marcel wanders, nika zupanc to join its debut collection.


qeeboo will present 25 plastic objects, among which chairs, tables, lamps and accessories realized thanks to advanced industrial technologies and techniques. qeeboo has a very light operative structure by outsourcing many of its activities. it thinks playfully, it produces taking care of the quality, it talks with the audience and tries to imagine the future.


Marcel Wanders



Dubbed by the New York Times as the “Lady Gaga of Design,” Amsterdam based Marcel Wanders (Boxtel, Netherlands, 1963) is a prolific product and interior designer and art director, with over 1700+ projects to his name for private clients and premium brands such as Alessi, Bisazza, Kosé Corporation/Cosme Decorte, KLM, Flos, Swarovski, Puma, among scores of others. In 2001 Marcel co-founded the successful design label Moooi, of which he is also Art Director.


Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel has made it his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” His work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain.


Marcel’s chief concern is bringing the human touch back to design, ushering in what he calls design’s ‘new age’; in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In his process, Marcel defies design dogma, preferring instead to focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In Marcel’s universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment.


B.B Collection



Combining the talents of designers Marcel Wanders and Stefano Giovannoni, a new collection arises out of their seemingly inevitable collaboration. Both have a penchant for establishing themselves with iconic pieces that are cherished throughout the world both commercially and artistically. The B.B. collection consists of a standing lamp and table lamp, together with a dining table and matching dining chairs. Reminiscent of Wanders’ New Antiques collection, the plastic legs of the lamps, placed on a solid base, follow the recognisable moulding. Jacquard fabric is upholstered onto the dining chairs and with a choice of black, white and colourful graphics can match the lampshades. The seats are placed onto a transparent plastic base, in clear or black, with the injection-moulding used for a curved appearance. This style of legs is also reflected in the dining table, which has an MDF top and it comes in various other dimensions. Together the set can be flexibly adapted to accommodate many interiors. The weight of the classic archetypal forms is contrasted by the lightness of the thin and transparent plastic. Design at its finest, this collection expresses a desire by the designers to cultivate relationships between the objects and environments they create and the people who will live among them. 


Nika Zupanc



Nika Zupanc is known for pouring her own personal brand of poetic disruption into the world of design and interiors. Her creations usually appear as precious one-off pieces, design editions that bring inspiring reports from the outer frontiers of technology, materials and possibility. Nika Zupanc has now joined a select handful of illustrious designers to represent Stefano Giovannoni’s mission to create emotionally charged objects accessible to wider audiences everywhere, giving voice to the things that cannot be told. A romantic, democratic and unconventional adventure the design world most definitely needs.


Alongside the new daisy-shaped lamp four of Nika’s existing designs have gone in for a stripping down back to basics, for a consummate production-driven plastic makeover. The X chair, now in a straight black injection-molded construction, boasts a host of seat and back fully customizable configurations. The Scarlet Table again turns things on their lovely heads, all shiny, smooth and a just a little diabolical. Ribbon chair, a one-off design for Dior back in 2013 returns all wrapped up in three lustrous shades. And Black Cherry lamp, originally fashioned from glass and brass is now also ripe for picking in a new, smaller high-gloss pop incarnation.


Daisy Lamp



Planted one day by a flirtatious fairy, Daisy turns its most radiant love-awakening spotlight on you. The “loves me, loves me not” rendezvous is now transformed into an egalitarian highlighter putting the sparkle back in the crowd’s covetous eye. Coming in six different shades of glossy pastels its adjustable petal allows you to stream the light directly on the true object of your affection. Let the love shine through!


X Chair / X Table


17 Avvenice - Qeeboo Official - New Collection - ribbon-chair-by-nika-zupanc-ambience.jpg


In its original rendition the X Chair fuelled our imagination with floral upholstery in full spring bloom. Now its injection-moulded construction has been stripped down to its ultimate, bare expression of all that is X. The chair can be dressed or undressed, changed or kept forever the same. Alongside the chair, the X Table, complete with extension mechanism and the choice of two different tabletops in wood or plastic, compels us to confront all that needs to be brought to the table. Constructed in solid black plastic, the new X collection always leaves much to be defined.


Scarlet Table



This object has not one but two deliciously treacherous sides. Can’t have it both ways? Whoever said that never filled it up with sticky sweets and invited friends to dive in. Or flipped it over and served up high afternoon tea, complete with crumpets and curd. This commodity of pure plastic roto-molding lineage supports our contemporary claim to choice with its devious ability to hide and reveal things at will and in so doing, playfully challenge prescribed rules and roles that both bind and liberate.


Ribbon Chair



There’s something deviously daring in this object of controlled prettiness. All the connotative expectations that a bow has to live up to – that of a surprise, a gift, a devotional gesture – are here unveiled in pure injection moulded plastic. It’s a sitting situation for those heroic enough to wear their heart neatly on their sleeve. It comes wrapped up in three colors – discrete black, immaculate white anddust pink.


Cherry Lamp



With its dangerous curves ahead the Cherry Lamp pendant is the ultimate instrument of seduction for all ready to live. Originally hand-blown in precious glass this luscious luminary now gets an explicitly glossy plastic little sister in a number of colors. She’s got a special pop refinement to her, a flirtatious body and plenty of attitude. And the modular assembly scheme can be imagined to include all the sweet cherries one might desire – start with one, pluck more as required. Qeeboo’s Cherry is most wanted and calm.


Studio Job



Studio Job was founded by Job Smeets in 1998 in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. Joined in 2000 by graphic designer Nynke Tynagel the duo went on to become pioneers of contemporary design, combining monumental design and graphic artwork. Works by Studio Job can be found in more than forty museums around the world. The design duo have had over eighty solo exhibitions around the world. Their iconic, heraldic and cartoon-like sculptures are popular with collectors. One of the most influential design team according to the Financial Times, Studio Job is passionate about building up an oeuvre that is becoming increasingly extravagant and personal in its details.


Andrea Branzi



Andrea Branzi, architect and designer, was born in Florence in 1938 where he graduated in 1966 and now he lives and works in Milan since 1973. From 1964 to 1974 he took part to the group Archizoom Associates, the first internationally renowned avant-garde group which projects are nowadays conserved at the University of Parma’s Research Facility and Archive of Communication; his thesis and several projects are conserved at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris. He’s co-founder of the Domus Academy, the first international post-lauream design school; he’s author of several books about history and theory of design and he also curated several design exhibitions in Italy and abroad.


In 1987 he gained the “Compasso D’Oro” Award to his carrier. He’s now professor and principal of the Interior and Product Design department at the Milan’s Polytechnic. My products are absolutely disconnected, but very much expressive: “Pupa” armchair, “Guru” anthropomorphic lamp, “Korall” vase and “Canotta” vase. Each of them has its own identity and a different productive technique: rotational and injection moulding. Nowadays the collections are made this way: everyone goes in a different direction, but if the objects are being placed into an ambience, they can create a dynamic scenario.


Front



Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design group Front. Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they are all involved in the projects from initial ideas to the final product. Front’s design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field.


In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.


Loop



Front’s new Loop chair has a dynamic, asymmetrical shape. “Just as human bodies are not symmetrical we wanted to create a chair that feels individual and allows different ways of sitting.” It is a challenge to make an injection-moulded plastic chair, but the material also has unique possibilities. It is possible to manipulate it in a whole range of dimensions in a way that is not possible in any other material. The plastic chair is finely crafted on the computer in collaboration with engineers, one digital point at a time. The Loop Chair is upholstered and stackable. 


Stefano Giovannoni



Stefano Giovannoni, graduated in Architecture in Florence in 1978, he lives and works in Milan. He works as an architect, interior and industrial designer specializing in plastic products. He has collaborated with companies such as Alessi, Amore Pacific, Cedderoth, Deborah, Fiat, Hannstar, Hansemm, Helit, Henkel, Honeywell, Kokuyo, Inda, Laufen, Lavazza, LG Hausys, Magis, Mikakuto, Ntt Docomo, Oras, Oregon Scientific, Pepsico, Pulsar, Samsung, Seiko, Siemens, Sodastream, 3M, Telecom, Toto, Veneta Cucine, etc.


He has designed very successful families of commercial products establishing records of sales in design contests such as, for Alessi, the “Girotondo” and “Mami” series, the Alessi popular iconic plastic product, “Il BagnoAlessi” as well as the “Bombo” series for Magis. He participated and won several competitions in architecture and design, while his products have been rewarded with several design prizes.


Rabbit Chair



The Rabbit chair is the last creation that came out from Stefano Giovannoni’s magic hat, that becomes a family of products with a strong communicative media power. The idea of the rabbit comes from the connection between its silhouette and the silhouette of a chair, where the rabbit’s ears become the setback of the chair. It has a double variation, for adults and for kids, and there is also a third version, illuminated, that can be a lamp. Young and olds can sit down and lean the back against rabbit’s ears or on the opposite side, riding it and leaning the arms on its ears. The rabbit is a gentle animal, lovable and tender. In Western and Eastern culture it symbolizes love and fertility, it is a sweet and auspicious object that brings good fortune and good wishes.


K. Chair



K. Chair is the traditional icon of the kitchen chair, designed in plastic at the top of the state of the art. There are certainly lots of chairs like this on the market, but no one of them can be compared to this that will become the new archetype of the kitchen chair, thanks to its design and price, finally affordable to a large audience.


Armrest Stool



Stefano Giovannoni is well known for having designed the “Bombo”, that has become the icon of the stool. In this case he dealt with a new typology where the seatback stands sinuously from the elliptical seat and so allows to seat both leaning back to this element and also to seat on the opposite side placing the legs under the armrest leaning the forearm on it.


Goblets (Table and Ceiling Lamps)



The classic crystal glass, taken out from its original scale, becomes a table lamp in three different shapes similar to a champagne flute, a goblet and a chalice. The same glasses, in a reversed position and with an element fixed on its top, become ceiling lamps.


Richard Hutten



Richard Hutten, Dutch, born in 1967, graduated from The Design Academy Eindhoven in 1991. That same year he founded his design studio specialised in product and interior design. He was one of the founding members of Droog Design, a Dutch collective who changed the field of design since it’s appearance in 1993. As today Hutten is one of the most influential Dutch designers. He is known for his conceptual yet playful designs. Of his famous Dombo mug over one million pieces got sold world wide.


Many of his clients are leaders in their field. To name a few: Moooi, Moroso, Offecct, Skultuna, Muji, Artifort, Gispen. His work can be found in over 40 museums in the world, including MoMA New York, Victoria & Albert Museum London, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Vitra Designmuseum, Weil am Rhein. Richard works and lives in Rotterdam and is the father of 3 sons.


Superform



Richard Hotten has a strong fascination for the circle. In his ongoing research into the circle he found the Supershape formula. This formula, based on equations by Dutch mathematician Johan Gielis, shapes in nature are described, starting with the circle. Hutten used this formula to generate the shape of the Superform lamp. With the help of Abel Hutten, Richard’s 17 year old son and Dutch champion mathematics, he generated shapes which were than translated into the Superform lamp. The result is a very rich looking lamp, which revers to classical patterns as well as to shapes in nature, such as the sunflower. Available in 3 colours: clear, grey and honey.


Pitagora



In mathematics there are only 5 regular shapes with an equal face, such as the cube and the triangular pyramid. For the Pitagora series of lamps, named after the famous greek mathematician Pitagora, Hutten used these regular shapes to create the iconic Pitagora family of light. In each side of a regular dodecahedron Hutten placed a round reflector. The result is an intriguing 3D object which changes from each angle you look at it. A rich object which gives a lot of atmosphere to a space. Both in a a hanging version as well as a floor version.
