Announcement   Our mission, simply put, is to make stuff we would want to have. Why should the things we use every day be boring? We think people should surround themselves with creatively-designed, cool, and smart products that are both functional and fun. Life is more interesting when we are inspired by the things we see around us every day.

About

Unique home accessories, furniture and jewelry crafted from sustainable materials.

Our mission, simply put, is to make stuff we would want to have. Why should the things we use every day be boring? We think people should surround themselves with creatively-designed, cool and smart products that are both functional and fun. Life is more interesting when we are inspired by the things we see around us every day.

All of our home accessories are made of individual pieces that slot together without the need for fasteners. Putting them together like a 3d puzzle is part of the fun and playfulness of our designs. This also allows us to ship them flat-packed, and is great for storage.

We use eco-friendly FSC certified bamboo plywood with a natural linseed or butcher block oil finish. The all-natural materials used in our products reflects our commitment to sustainability and the environment.

GioGio Design was founded by twin sisters Jessica and Monica Giovachino. Jessica is a practicing architect as well as the designer of our products, and she brings this experience to the creation of her home accessories and jewelry. She creates elegant, organic pieces that are influenced by nature as well as architecture and design. Jessica's pieces include playful reinterpretations of traditional forms and natural motifs.

Jessica designs our products on the computer, and the individual pieces are cut out with a CNC (computer) operated router or laser cutter. She sands and finishes each piece by hand in her New York studio.

Our line of jewelry came about as we realized we could apply the same design and production methods that we use to make our home accessories on a much smaller scale. Jessica's jewelry designs feature geometric and organic patterns in leather, wood, stainless steel and brass. Our mission is to offer a unique and fresh line of jewelry featuring alternative materials and elegant, clean design all at a competitive price point.

  • E. Leet Woodworking

    Plainwell, MI

    E. Leet Woodworking works with me to create prototypes of my home accessories, so I can fine tune the fit and connections. They cut the individual parts of my housewares from bamboo plywood using my CAD drawings and a computer-operated (CNC) router.

    Ponoko provides a large catalog of materials (wood, metal & leather) and a cutting service all in one place. I design my pieces on the computer, and they use my graphic files to cut the individual parts for my jewelry and small houseware designs.
