About The Collection

Simplicity imbued with a sense of beauty is at the core of the Post Collection from Cecilie Manz. The name is a nod to the former home of the Royal Mail, renovated into our flagship showroom in Copenhagen. Clean, uncluttered lines are the signature traits of the Post Chair, boasting a solid wood frame that reflects our heritage of wood craftsmanship and appreciation for authentic materials.

The Post Chair is upright and unassuming. The plywood seat and back are light yet sturdy, while the arms offer just enough support with a minimal use of space. Add to that the option of an upholstered seat in leather or fabric, and you have a subtle design that could easily fit into a residential setting, restaurant, café or corporate environment.

Cecilie Manz

Designer

"SOME OF MY PROJECTS REMAIN EXPERIMENTS OR SCULPTURED IDEAS, OTHERS ARE MADE MORE CONCRETE AND TURN INTO FUNCTIONAL TOOLS."

With discreet and playful aesthetics, Cecilie’s work demonstrates that functional details are able to create the aesthetic essence of an object in a subtle way. Early recognition of her contribution to Danish design began with the "Micado", table designed for Fredericia in 2004.

After graduation from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - The School of Design in 1997, additionally studying at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Cecilie Manz founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998. Here, Cecilie Manz designs furniture, glass, lamps and related products, mainly for the home.

In addition to her work with industrial products, her experimental prototypes and more sculptural one-offs make up an important part of her work and approach:

“I view all my works as fragments of one big, ongoing story where the projects are often linked or related in terms of their idea, materials and aesthetics, across time and function. My work has always revolved around simplicity, the process of working toward a pure, aesthetic and narrative object.”

Cecilie is recipient of the Thorvald Bindesbøll Medal 2011, the Bruno Mathsson Prize 2009, Kunstpreis Berlin 2008, the Finn Juhl Architectural Prize 2007, The Furniture Prize 2007, the Three-Year Working Grant from the Danish Arts Foundation and several other grants.
