Since 2016, Qeeboo is an Italian next-generation brand by Stefano Giovannoni, creating design.
Its products are emotional and narrative, and suitable for all. Far from traditional design imaginary, their uniqueness is based on the exploration of different visions of figurative art with a narrative approach, creating iconic objects with great emotional power. Extraordinary objects are created in a playful-narrative approach, with the collaboration of top international designers.
Marcantonio is the designer for the extraordinary Giraffe in Love Chandelier, Turtle Carry Bookcase, and the Filicudi Chair, for Qeeboo; featured here at Ark Interiors.
“I never give up irony; irony is a serious matter. If a good idea is even fun, I cannot resist to realize it”.
Marcantonio was born in Italy and graduated from the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts. After graduation, Marcantonio worked on projects with architects and soon after, created unique pieces of designs incorporating artistic concepts. His favorite theme is the connection between Man and Nature; and interpreting the dynamics and beauties of them.
His work is a direct continuation of what he used to do as a child, playing with everything he finds, and create what his mind imagined.
He looks for the aesthetic elements and concepts and takes ideas from the sources he created while playing, daydreaming, and in his surroundings.
Marcantonio translates the natural world and its bizarre forms into artistic concepts bringing sophisticated irony to our homes.
GIRAFFE IN LOVE CHANDELIER
Giraffe in Love represents the irony and lightness: the giraffe’s heart is far from her head, she is in love but she doesn’t know it yet and she lives love light-heartedly. Designed by Marcantonio, Giraffe in Love holds a classic Marie-Thérèse style chandelier. At 9 feet high, a dimension that allows it to step into everyone’s homes.
Available in white or black. XL version (13 feet high), Medium version (9 feet high), wall lamp version and XS version (3 feet high).
TURTLE CARRY BOOKCASE
The Turtle Carry Bookcase carries a pile of your favorite books with a metal support with three shelves on its shell. The Turtle Carry Collection also includes a coffee table, a planter and champagne cooler, a lamp, and a carry pouf that can function as a seat, footrest, or additional tabletop. The Turtle Carry Collection is available in white, dove grey, and black.
The prickly pear plant evokes sceneries and special relaxing moments of the Mediterranean, a place of holidays and discoveries. The Filicudi chair recreates the Mediterranean magic in your everyday spaces. It comes in a set of two, suitable for the indoors and outdoors. Available in a chair and lounge chair in black/brass, white/brass, and balsam green/brass.
