Shipping & Delivery


Designed by Cecilie Manz for Fredericia, Micado is a sculptural side table inspired by an old Japanese pick-up sticks game. The ingenious little table is assembled without any screws or hinges – the table is built on three wooden legs that pierce the round tabletop and hold it steady. Manz designed Micado in 2004 for an exhibition with the theme ”nomad furniture”, and the same year it was awarded the Danish Design Prize. The table has been crafted in Denmark from solid oak.

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.
