Born and launched in 2016 in Milan by Stefano Giovannoni, Qeeboo is an Italian design brand that empowers self-expression with creativity. Its narrative objects are a result of a design culture that combines thought, vision and emotion with the purpose of bringing individuals into worlds in which they feel free to reconnect with their most creative side. Simultaneously, the ideas and products created want to relate to people’s stories, populating their lives while giving new meanings to their everyday spaces.
With a twist of pop, wonder and culture Qeeboo’s creations are consciously thought to enhance the style of each individual bringing originality to the environment, arising a sense of surprise, still maintaining a rigorous attention to details and final high-quality.
Who we are: we are qeeboo
Qeeboo gives a soul to its creations with the aim of awakening individuals’ emotions, imagination and creativity. It distinguishes from the classic design as it focuses on an innovative vision between objects, people and spaces, that combines reality with fantasy. At the same time, its iconic objects create a surprising and unexpected effect while communicating stories that can reach different targets and everyone can resonate with. In fact, all products are purposely thought to be versatile and suitable for a wide range of audience. Qeeboo strives to give a new and unique meaning to every kind of public and private environment, both indoor and outdoor: be it a house, office, garden, hotel or any other space, covering a wide range of product sizes from out-of-scale to micro objects.
Where we are: from Milan to the world
Qeeboo’s headquarter is based in Milan, in the heart of Tortona design district, a neighborhood historically voted to Art and Design and one of the most important industry related events, Fuorisalone. During the fair, Tortona district becomes an exposition of the latest design trends. Qeeboo’s monobrand store can be found in via Crocefisso 27, Milan. This location showcases all the iconic products of the collection ready to be seen and purchased.

Our know-how: a distinctive innovation
In Qeeboo we are constantly oriented to develop new projects, optimize processes, work with different materials continuously improving our technologies. Thanks to a great commitment, we developed sophisticated products such as our chairs realized with gas-assisted injection molding or big sculptural objects by which the rotational molding technology finds its highest expression. Giraffe in Love, with her 2.65 meters high, or Kong XL, with its pivoting arm, are unique products meticulously developed to allow our company to reach a large number of people with prices that suit every budget.
We certificate all our outdoor products with an IP65, an high grade of protection against atmospheric agents. Moreover, Qeeboo is the only company in the world that succeeded to metalize polyethylene products manufactured through the rotational molding technique, endowing them with the appeal of the chromium plated metal finish. This effect has been achieved thanks to the physical vapour deposition (PVD), consisting in a thin layer of few micron in real brass, silver or copper that cover the product giving it lightness and durability. Both the metallization and the flocking are not realized in series but one by one, by the precision and care of our best artisans: this is why in Qeeboo we strive for industrial craftsmanship, supporting a lively assembling chain 100% made in Italy.
Moreover, Qeeboo focuses on constantly developing new products with the aim of creating imaginative landscapes that transform your everyday life and, most importantly, products that are consciously thought to live and last forever. In order to maintain the longevity feature, the majority of these products are created using polyethylene: one of the most common plastics known for its flexible and recyclable properties.
All creations are realized respecting high quality production standards and functionality, specifically aimed at resisting both in outdoor and indoor spaces for a lifetime, avoiding pollution.
Among the various benefits, the production of polyethylene is characterized by the advantage of using fewer resources over other plastics, it is less harmful as it does not contain chemicals such as plasticizers and, most importantly, being composed by a single type of plastic, it can be completely (100%) recycled.
