Cecilie Manz is the designer behind Origami - a multifunctional basket inspired by the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The purpose of origami is to create an object based on geometric, folded shapes and patterns.
The Danish designer has a fascination for Japan that shines through the foldable design, where minimalism, functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand.
The Origami basket is made in linen and the straps come in leftover leather from our designs produced with nature leather - in other words, high quality leather that only becomes more beautiful with time. In 2016, Fritz Hansen Objects was born. Ever since, the most stunning vases, amazing pillows and much more have added another dash of beauty to beautiful homes.
Objects enhances the Fritz Hansen collection and enriches it with accessories for the design savvy and quality oriented home.

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.
