Cecilie Manz is a Denmark-born furniture designer that went and founded her studio almost twenty years ago, in 1998. She mostly designs furniture pieces for a home environment, with pieces ranging from furniture to lamps, and even glass. She also likes to experiment with some other prototypes, which are considerably more sculptural and make for an important part of her work.

I view all my works as fragments of one big, ongoing story where the projects are often linked or related in terms of their idea, materials, and aesthetics, across time and function.Some objects remain experiments or sculpted ideas, others are made more concrete and turn into functional tools.”

It’s called ‘Micado‘ and you can’t help but understand why that connection was so brilliantly made. The minimalist piece of Danish furniture can be looked at as a simple bar table, and the light wood contrasts beautifully with the blacktopped legs.

Meet ‘Minuscule‘, a light upholstered chair that was first designed and brought to life in 2012. Today, they are still as relevant and current as they were five years ago. The simple and minimalist lines of Danish interior design are present throughout the designer’s pieces.

Essay‘ is a solid wood table, that can be produced in oak, ash, or walnut. It was first presented to the market in 2009, but just like ‘Minuscule’ it is still making everyone fall in love with Danish furniture design.

Finally, these stunning seating pieces were cleverly named’ Soufflé’. ‘Soufflé’ is a series of poufs and tables that were made for Offecct. But who knows, maybe in January you will be able to see them live at your favorite furniture fair: Maison et Objet!
