In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, we highlight the work of six designers making an impact in the fields of furniture, lighting, architecture and interiors, through design innovation.
Award-winning Danish designer Cecilie Manz is a master of modern minimalism.
She encountered the world of design in early childhood, as her parents were both artists. Her work abides by a ‘form follows function’ philosophy, with an understated aesthetic, highlighting the details with supreme quality materials.
“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,” Cecilie Manz.
