The Caravaggio lamp, design and inspiration by Cecilie Manz

Cecilie Manz is one of the contemporary Danish designers who inspire me the most. Because of the sensitivity with which she shapes and brings her ideas to reality, and for all that Scandinavian cultural baggage that is embodied in designs such as the Caravaggio lamp.

She has collaborated with different brands such as Fritz Hansen, Bang & Olufsen or Duravit. In addition to been recognized as Designer of the Year at Maison & Object 2018. So, let's not doubt that the next few years we will see much more of her design.


The portfolio of Cecilie Manz is huge but today we will stop at this lamp that I am sure more than once you have seen, but perhaps you did not know well its origin or who is behind its design.

The Caravaggio lamp is named after the characteristics of shadow and dramatic light of Caravaggio's paintings. The idea of ​​this lamp is simple, as well as its design, without forced elements or complicated materials. A lamp with the necessary elements looking to create a dramatic and contrasting light. Each element of this lamp fulfills its function, without seeking to hide it and thus achieve this lamp, which seems to wrap the light.

I'll take this sentence from Cecilie Manz:

"Danish design is about the sensibility toward materiality: using the right material in the right place"

Hope you enjoy this lamp in these fantastic interiors!

    My mother was a bug fan of Danish modern furniture so I inherited a bunch of her vintage pieces that are still beautiful today.
