Cecilie Manz is one of the modern Danish designers
As promised, we set the theme ” Danish design “Gone. Today we would like to introduce you to a contemporary Danish designer.
Who is she: Cecilie Manz
Why did we choose exactly Cecilie Manz? to present directly after the great Arne Jacobsen:
Because we want to present Danish design from different angles.
We want to face Cecilie Manz and Arne Jacobsen and thereby emphasize the development of Danish design in recent decades. The contrast between the two will help us.
