The Post collection is an example of eliminating all futility to focus on the essentials.
For designer Cecilie Manz, creating means questioning the function of a piece of furniture. By reducing an idea to what is necessary, form emerges from function into a pure and useful expression.
It is this simplicity imbued with a sense of beauty that is at the heart of the Post de Manz collection. The name is a nod to the former home of the Royal Mail, now Fredericia's showroom in Copenhagen. Clean lines are the hallmarks of the Post table and Post chair, each featuring a solid wood frame that reflects the heritage of wood craftsmanship and appreciation for authentic materials.
The Post chair is straight and unpretentious, with a classic line. The plywood seat and back are lightweight yet sturdy, while the arms provide just enough support with minimal use of space. Add to that the option of a leather or fabric upholstered seat, and you have a subtle design that could easily fit into a residential setting, restaurant, café or corporate environment.
With its long rectangular top and sturdy cylindrical legs, the Post table is the perfect fusion of functionality, simplicity and serenity in a classic, modern and minimalist design. The solid wood frame provides a stable structure for the profiled table top available in clear varnished, soaped or smoked oiled solid oak. The feet placed at the ends offer plenty of space for the legs.

« I consider all my works as fragments of a large continuous story in which the projects are often linked together in terms of idea, materials and aesthetics, through time and functions. My work has always revolved around simplicity, the working process to achieve a pure, aesthetic and narrative object. »
With a discreet and playful aesthetic, Cecilie's work demonstrates that functional details can also bring aesthetics to an object in a subtle way.
