CECILIE MANZ ON THE DESIGN
"A basket for the daily bread. Wicker has clear references to Scandinavian basket technique; wide, thin straps weaved in two directions - only here performed in a completely different material and method, - a highly durable composite moulded into its shape. The structure is light and hollow, emphasizing the direction of the individual straps."

DESIGNER CECILIE MANZ ON HER DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I design things that have a meaning to me. My general idea is always to have a clear argument legitimizing the designs that I make. Function is essential, and if I cannot formulate a good reason for a new product, it is better to refrain from making it.
