Description

The Workshop chair, designed by Cecilie Manz for Muuto, is a charming combination of traditional craftsmanship, contemporary design and beautiful details. The name Workshop refers to the design process that took place at Manz’s Copenhagen studio: sketches were transformed into full-scale models over the course of only a few weeks. The chair has a round veneer back that creates a pleasant contrast with the sturdy, solid wood frame and its sharp edges. Workshop makes a great dining chair for both domestic and public environments.

In 2020 Muuto changed the chairs’ finish to a more environmentally-friendly, water-based lacquer. Please note that, as a result, the hue of the chairs is slightly different than before.

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.
