    Island by Cecilie Manz

    The early morning fog—a thick layer over the trees, the lake, the mountains—makes everything a bit softer around the edges. It is like being in a poem. The 16 shades of Cecilie Manz’s palette Island are inspired by a remote Japanese island and its palpable serenity. Enigmatic and captivating, the landscape partially submerged in fog forms an almost abstract natural scenery.

    Portrait of designer Cecilie Manz for Scandinavian colour and design house, Blēo.

    Cecilie Manz is based in Copenhagen, working from a serenely lit studio hidden in the belly of the city centre. After graduation from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - The School of Design in 1997, Cecilie Manz founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998. Her designs for furniture, tableware, lighting and electronics draw on the Danish design tradition, yet have their own kind of poetry and voice. In addition to industrially manufactured products, experimental prototypes and sculptural one-offs remain an important part of her practice and approach.
