Oops / Oops I Did It Again
DESIGN BY MONICA GRAFFEO, 2006—2016
Designed by Monica Graffeo in 2006, Oops is an extendable table with an aluminium base and a 50mm thick lacquered top that extends from a round to an ellipsoidal shape. In technical terms, this table is impeccable when closed or open due to its aesthetic appeal and sturdiness. In 2016, the collection was extended: the Oops I Did It Again range now includes two fixed tables with a round top and a fixed table with a rectangular top, available in different sizes. The legs are made of die-cast aluminium with a brushed or powder-coated lacquer finish. They can be combined as required with a top in laminate, Fenix-NTM® or wood veneer.
I was born in 1973 in Pordenone. I attended an experimental classical lyceum, and after that the Italian Design School of Padova (graduated in 1995, specialization in 1996). I began working first in collaboration with Fausto Boscariol and afterwards with Gabriele Centazzo of Valcucine. In 1998 I launched my free-lance activity and my relationship with Kristalia. Since 1996 I have been working with the Italian Design School of Padova, first as a master’s assistant and for the last four years as an instructor of research methods. In 2001, for the Italian Design series, a stamp was published showing a Free chair, produced by Kristalia in 2001. In 2003 the Boum seating system, produced by Kristalia in 2002, received the 2003 Young&Design award. On July of 2003 I took part in a Summer Section in Industrial Design at the Domus Accademy, while in September of 2003 i displayed by designs at the exposition Donna&Design at the Pesaro furniture trade fair. In 2004 I debuted at the satellite exposition with 806D, friends design team, and the chair Mints, produced by Arflex International in 2004, for which I received the Young & Design 2004 second prize.
