Cecilie Manz

Born in 1972 in the Danish town of Odsherred, Cecilie Manz lives and works in Copenhagen. In 1997, she graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (design, objects and furniture section). She continued her training at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, then she founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998. Embodying Scandinavian creativity in all its simplicity, Cecilie Manz designs furniture, lamps and a set of home products. Celebrating the Nordic art of living, she subtly mixes gray tones and brighter colors. 

Alongside her activity with brands, Cecilie Manz continues to work off-set on experimental and more sculptural projects which make up an important part of her work and her approach: “I view all my works as fragments of one big, ongoing story, where the projects are often linked or related in terms of their ideas, materials, and aesthetics, across time and function. » 

The fame of his work is international. She won the Thorvald Bindesbøll Medal in 2011 (Denmark), the Bruno Mathsson Prize 2009 (Sweden), the Berlin Kunstpreis Prize in 2008 (Germany), the Finn Juhl Architecture Prize in 2007 (Denmark), The Cultural Prize of the crown in 2014 (Denmark), the honorary prize E.
