“I like to emphasize spontaneity and simplicity. I let my ideas run wild in the beginning but then as they begin to take shape, I begin to minimize as much as possible.” Cecilie Manz – the designer of Micado – explains.
After her graduation in 1997 from the Danmarks Designskole in Copenhagen, with additional studies at the University of Art & Design in Helsinki, Finland, Manz founded her own studio in Copenhagen.
Micado, the well known game with wooden sticks, was the inspiration for the three-legged construction of the Micado table. A table top and three legs nothing fancy, but the result is great. Micado is available in ash, oak or cherry – and the tabletop is also available in black lacquered MDF.
Manz – young but already internationally renowned – won in 2004 the Danish Design Prize for this beautiful piece of furniture.
