Based on the well-known Caravaggio™ shape, Cecilie Manz has created a wall lamp with clean lines that is refined and above all functional. The classic shade is installed on a flexible tube that makes it possible to tilt and direct the light. The lamp can also be rotated 180 degrees, making it suitable for any room, for example living room, kitchen or bedroom. The switch is placed discreetly at the bottom of the wall bracket. The Caravaggio Read Wall™ has three narrow slits at the top of the shade that allow light to pass through. The metal lamps give a soft and targeted light, while the opal lamps sends out a warm, diffused light. Caravaggio Read wall™ lamps are available in white, light grey (grey25™), black matte paint and a hand-blown opal glass variant. The neutral colouring makes it possible for the lamps to blend timelessly into their surroundings wherever they may be.
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.
