On Her Design Philosophy Cecilie Manz I design things that have meaning to me. My general objective is to always have a clear argument that legitimizes the designs that I make. Function is essential and if I cannot formulate a good reason for a new product to exist, it is better to refrain from making it.
On Scandinavian design:
"There are skilled craftsmen all over the world, but what makes Scandinavian design successful is our feel for materials and attention to detail. Scandinavian design is minimalist and humble with great respect for each single material. We are taught the trade of design in the workshop, working with the material in our hands—we immerse ourselves into it."
