Designer Cecilie Manz

“I design things that have meaning to me. My general objective is to always have a clear argument that legitimizes the designs that I make. Function is essential and if I cannot formulate a good reason for a new product to exist, it is better to refrain from making it.” - Cecilie Manz

Designer Cecilie Manz lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her designs are characterised by a subtlety, lightness of touch and he years she a commitment to 'form over function'. Manz says of her approach "a project has to possess a sound, strong and relevant idea or functional justification before I address the actual physical design."

After graduation from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - The School of Design in 1997 with additional studies at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Cecilie Manz founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998.

Over the years her contribution to the Nordic design renaissance has been significant. She has worked with Lightyears, Fritz Hansen, Nikari, Fredericia and Muuto. Her designs can be found in the permanent collections of such landmark institutions as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Design Museum Danmark.
