Caravaggio Read™ is yet another addition to designer Cecilie Manz' iconic Caravaggio™ series. Based on the wall lamp's adjustable shade, she has created a whole new universe of Caravaggio™ lamps with functional, directional light. These small lamps do exactly what they should and have a design that is as simple and minimalist as possible. The floor lamp can rotate 260 degrees around its own axis thus giving the user an extraordinary degree of flexibility. The floor lamp is fitted with a 3-step touch control dimmer for adjustment of light intensity. The small diameter of the base means that it is easy to position the lamp. In this way, the floor lamp can be pulled all the way to the sofa and provide you with light exactly where you need it. The floor lamp is fairly low to ensure that the light is more intimate.
Cecilie Manz was born in the Odsherred region of Denmark. As the child of parents occupied with art and design, designing always formed a natural part of her life. She chose design as her living when she began studying at the Danish School of Design in 1992. Her great interest for function and conceptualization took her further as an exchange student to Helsinki where she attended the Finnish University of Art and Design. In 1998, a year after she graduated from the Danish School of Design she started her own studio, Manz Lab, the centre of her work ever since. Already, Cecilie Manz has exhibited all over the world and is permanently represented in the exhibitions of MOMA and the Danish Design Centre. She has been lectured and awarded several significant prizes for her conceptual design. "I work with 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" - Cecilie Manz.
