CONTEMPORARY DESIGN OBJECT
DINING CHAIR II – MUGA SILK designed by Studio Mumbai – Bijoy Jain made in teakwood and muga silk Booth 03
MANIERA gallery commissions architects and artists to develop furniture and objects for use, offering them the opportunity to take an excursion beyond their usual practice. Architects often have a close relationship with the visual arts and artists are often inspired by the spatial environment. MANIERA crystallises these affinities into new design proposals. More than just furniture, the objects produced by MANIERA are a deliberate search for confrontations between the realms of architecture, design and art.
MANIERA brings both up-and-coming and well-established figures to the fore. What they all have in common is a personal language and hand, a conceptual mode of thought, and an authentic and idiosyncratic ‘maniera’ or working method.
MANIERA was founded by Kwinten Lavigne and Amaryllis Jacobs in 2014.
