DESIGNER CECILIE MANZ ON HER DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I design things that have a meaning to me. My general idea is always to have a clear argument legitimizing the designs that I make. Function is essential, and if I cannot formulate a good reason for a new product, it is better to refrain from making it.
The wonderful Caravaggio T table lamp is a 2008 addition to the Caravaggio lamp collection created by Cecilie Manz for the manufacturer Lightyears. Originally the Caravaggio series was famous for its characteristic pendant lamp with its high-gloss lacquered metal shade and its downward light emission. In record time Caravaggio reached the status of a true modern classic.
