MANIERA gallery commissions architects and artists to develop furniture and objects for use, offering them an excursion beyond their usual practice. As architects often have a close relationship with the visual arts and artists are often inspired by the spatial environment, MANIERA intends to crystalise these proximities into new design proposals. More than just furniture, the objects issued by MANIERA are a deliberate search for collisions between the realms of architecture, design and art.
Above all, MANIERA wants to bring a young, up-and-coming generation to the fore, but also show established and renowned figures in a new way. The most important elements in this involve a personal language and writing, a conceptual mode of thought, and an authentic and idiosyncratic way of working.
Although founded in 2014, MANIERA gallery already has a strong presence on the global design market, quietly and successfully changing prevailing notions of furniture design and production.
