oooh!design is a multidisciplinary laboratory made up of Diego Zanella, designer and cool hunter, Gaziella Giacobbe, illustrator and stylist, Ornella Rigato, Creative Director of the agency that bears her name and expert in food packaging.
Three different personalities with a single vision relative to design: an interest for the dysfunctional aspects of our daily life and the search for new and unexpected design solutions, which are at times ironic, at times conceptual, but always surprising.
They participated in the 2006 and 2007 Salone Internazionale del Mobile (Milano), within the ambit of the Transformer and Vecchio/Old Shows, organised by Opos, the famous Milanese firm that promotes young and emerging design.
In 2008, they were selected by Trieste Contemporanea for the Graal Glass show, with the theme of the Sacred Graal.
Their designs always start from a reflection on the shady sides of our contemporary world, an almost psychological approach, which aims to bring out the disturbed aspects of our daily lives. Their objects have a strong symbolic value, which sometimes stimulates ambivalent sensations, and they are placed in an interstitial area, between art and design; conceptual, but without intellectualisms.
