Ribbon dining chairs, Rabbit chair, Rabbit lamps and Empire lamp
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.
I selected those designers whose languages I felt the closest to mine,” said Giovannoni, “designers who have the ability to define the world of their objects through narrative poetry based on iconic objects that could communicate all their emotional values.

A magical mix of technologies, inventions, and industrial techniques, creating a catalogue of poetic funny and hybrid objects allowing everyone to interpret and use them freely.
Front (Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren) with its Loop Chair
Swedish studio Front’s stackable Loop Chair has an asymmetrical spiral-like back and a padded seat that can be upholstered in textile or leather.
Asymmetry and dynamism: the designers have been inspired by the human body, asymmetrical in nature, to create a seat that does not impose a single position but allows the body to find the ideal one.
