CMA teapot by 1616 / arita japan represents the simple aesthetics of Japanese design at its most beautiful and practical. The material and shape of the Japanese teapot are all perfectly balanced together. The long handle makes it easy to serve tea, coffee and other hot beverages without burning your fingers.

Designed by Cecilie Manz, the breathtakingly delicate collection includes cups, mugs and teapots that combine beautifully with each other and with other tableware. The minimalist and timeless design makes the CMA series suitable for both everyday and festive occasions. The dinnerware is made from a mixed clay containing Amakusa pottery stone that has a large amount of iron deposits. This means that the shapes and colours of the dishes may vary slightly from pot to pot, making each piece unique. As a reference to the material used, the CMA collection is also known by the name "Clay".

Cecilie Manz

Cecilie Manz (b. 1972) is a Danish designer who studied at the Danish Design School with additional studies at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Cecilie Manz has designed furniture, glass, lamps and related products. In addition to her work with industrial products, her experimental prototypes and more sculptural one-offs make up an important part of her work and approach. For Cecilie Manz function is essential when designing: if a good reason for a new product cannot be formulated, it is better to refrain from making it. Cecilie Manz has designed for brands such as Lightyears, Fritz Hansen, Nikari and Muuto.

For Lightyears she has designed the Caravaggio series of lamps. The main idea behind the Caravaggio series was to create a simple, soft design for small and large pendants. For Lightyears she created also the Mondrian series of lamps. In her development of the lamp series Mondrian, the driving force for the designer was minimalist design. Cecilie Manz has exhibited all over the world and is permanently represented in the exhibitions of the MoMA and the Danish Design Centre. She has been lectured and awarded several significant prizes for her conceptual design.
