QuaglioSimonelli is a binominal duo of Italian designers based in Paris.

After their début in Italy, Philippe Starck invited them, as product designers, to join his Tim Thom group with the Thomson creation centre.

Multimedia. As independent creators, their interests span many different spheres of creation. They see diversification as a source of creative richness and believe that
each object deserves thought.
They have done design work for the foodstuffs industry with Barilla and Lagostina, lamps for Ligne Roset, office accessories for Mandarina Duck, flasks for l’Oreal; lines of cosmetics for Royal, Movie and Oe, for whom Andrea is art director.. all this while continuing their collaboration with Thomson-TTE, where Manuela is head of worldwide strategic design.
