Design Cecilie Manz, 2009
Solid oak wood
Made by Fritz Hansen

"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

Essay™ is an exclusive table series in solid wood, created by the Danish designer Cecilie Manz. What distinguishes Essay is its solid yet light design.

The table consists of three elements - a table top and two bases - in a simple and natural construction that gives it both an elegant look and flexible functionality. The table is perfect as the gathering point for any home where family members, friends and guests meet.
