With every new edition, MAISON&OBJET PARIS elects a Designer of the Year to honour one of the most outstanding names in industrial and interior design worldwide. In January 2018, MAISON&OBJET PARIS has chosen to celebrate the talent of Danish designer Cecilie Manz.
After earning a diploma in object and furniture design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1997, Cecilie Manz moved to Finland to further her education at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki. The very next year, she founded her own studio in the heart of Copenhagen.
A career spanning twenty years, she has emerged today as one of the major figures of Scandinavian design. Despite her taste for experimenting with new materials and exploring original functions, whenever she sits down at her drawing table the process is invariable. Every new design starts with countless sketches and models and a close dialogue and collaboration with the manufacturer.
Cecilie Manz is constantly experimenting in her studio and she will present the latest results of her work at MAISON&OBJET in January 2018. The exhibition will feature existing products and new designs, displayed in a warm and homey atmosphere – the underlying theme that defines every single one of her creations.
