Fritz Hansen Balance Rug
The four rug designs draw inspiration from the designer’s pencil drawings with geometric cut-outs, paper layering and coloured pencils, as well as shapes cast by sunlight through her studio windows.
Various tufting heights within each design make these rugs subtly three dimensional and tactually interesting. Each rug is handtufted in India and coloured with acid-free dye. Proceeds from production support children’s education in Nepal.

Cecilie Manz wants to sent the message that everything is possible. This positive conviction stems from her upbringing in a creative environment of artists and craftsmen. Her interest in design and materials brought her to Danmarks Designskole (the Danish School of Design), where she studied a curriculum of furniture and implements. Her determination to explore function and ability to think conceptually was sharpened further during a period of study in Helsinki. Today in her own design studio, Cecilie Manz strives to combine conceptualism with the Danish penchant for durable materials and sublime, craftsman-like finish. An innovative fire and sense of detail express themselves in Cecilie Manz?fs lighting designs for Lightyears. As she puts it, new products should either be innovative and rejuvenating, or offer improvement, in order to earn recognition. Thus, she has done her utmost to develop designs that do not steal attention from the light, but ensure that function always prevails.
