Celebrating design with Cecilie Manz!
Cecilie Manz has been found of art since very little. As a child, she wouldn’t miss any opportunity to sink her hand into the clay of her parents’ ceramicist studio. In 1977 she earned a diploma in object and furniture design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and in the very next year, she founded her own studio in Copenhagen after she further her education at the Universtiy of Art and Design in Helsinki.
The Danish designer told Maison et Objet that “the balance she maintains between civilization and nature is vital to her creative process.” Her inspiration is also provided by her lifestyle and relationships with family members.
“My work goes from the inside out, and a project has to possess a sound, strong and relevant idea or functional justification before I address the actual physical design. My work has always revolved around simplicity, the process of working toward a pure, aesthetic and narrative object.”
Today, Cecilie Manz designs furniture, glass, lamps and industrial products, mainly for the home. Her experimental prototypes and more sculptural one-offs make up also play an important part of her work. When asked about the biggest highlight of her career, Cecilie Manz admits that it was the ceremony for the Crown Prince Couple’s Culture Award she won in 2014, presented to her by the Prince and Princess of Denmark. Cecilie Manz is, without any doubt, one of the major figures of Scandinavian design.
Let’s fall in love with her amazing work!
The Ladder was her first project that was quickly picked up for production by Nils Holger Moormann.
Caravaggio lamp ( 2005, with Lightyears) has also jumpstarted her career. Not a best seller, but certainly a long seller.
Cecilie Manz has also worked on various projects such as sofa throws, a minibar for a Wallpaper* show, a series of wooden armchairs, a collection of dining tables and chairs for Fritz Hansen, glass vases, and several models of portable speakers for B&O Play.
“She is constantly experimenting in her studio and she will present the latest results of her work at MAISON ET OBJET January 2018.”
