Degree by Cecilie Manz
Another Monday, another extraordinary kitchen design from the danish design company Reform. I really don’y know how they do it. One great designer name after another and every single design, hits a trend spot on. If this continues, I think I need to have multiple kitchens in my future dream house. This time it is one of our own, the talented designer Cecilie Manz who has a very strong attention to details. She has designed a kitchen based on simple principles; balancing functionality and a hospitable atmosphere. The steel countertop is a practical and raw expression that is balanced with warm shades of the cabinet fronts; the golden Oregon Pine and rich painted grey. The wood grain of the Oregon Pine is laid at a 45 degree angle, softly contrasting with the horizontal and vertical lines of the kitchen. The geometric notch handle is placed in the corner of each front and adds a graphic element to the kitchen. The simple details and honest materials create a classic but modern look. A comfortable backdrop for everyday life.
After graduation from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts – The School of Design in 1997, Cecilie Manz founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998. Here, Cecilie Manz designs furniture, glass, lamps and related products, mainly for the home. Cecilie Manz is the recipient of several grants, e.g. the Thorvald Bindesbøll Medal 2011, Kunstpreis Berlin 2008, The Danish Crown Prince Couples Cultural Award 2014, and latest MAISON&OBJET PARIS chose to celebrate the talent of the designer with the award; Designer of The Year 2018.
