Objects origami basket

By Fritz Hansen


  • Description

    The multifunctional Origami basket by Cecilie Manz was 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’s own fascination with Japan shines through the foldable design, which harmoniously unites minimalism, functionality and aesthetics. The Origami basket is made of linen and its straps of leather left over from the production of other Republic of Fritz Hansen™ designs: in other words, a high-quality material that only grows more beautiful with time.

    Cecilie Manz

    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, she started her own studio, Manz Lab, the centre of her work ever since.

    Cecilie Manz' strong feeling for functionality and insistence on quality made her an obvious choice for Fritz Hansen. 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 awarded several significant prizes for her conceptual design.
