Quaglio Simonelli Design,

Quaglio Simonelli is the creation of two designers Andrea Quaglio and Manuela Simonelli, both graduates of the Università del Progetto, in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
After their debut in Italy, they are invited by Philippe Starck to join the Tim Thom, Thomson Multimédia’s creative center, as product designers, to put their creativity at the service of the various brands of the group. Their collaboration with Thomson and subsequently TCL, of which Manuela will lead the Global Strategic Design, will last more than 10 years.
In parallel, the duo carries out projects in different fields of creation, thinking that diversification is a source of creative richness and that each object deserves to be studied. They design technology products, create furniture and decorative objects, conceive the visual identity and product design for beauty brands, alternating industrial logic and artisanal approach.
