Maniera
Founded by Kwinten Lavigne and Amaryllis
Jacobs in 2014, MANIERA commissions architects
and artists to develop furniture and objects for
use, offering them the opportunity to take an
excursion beyond their usual practice.
MANIERA brings both upcoming and well-
established figures to the fore. Each with a

proper personal language and hand, and a
conceptual mode of thought. More than just
furniture, all creations are a deliberate search
for confrontations between the realms of
architecture, design and art.

“Our profiles and backgrounds are very different,
which allows us to contribute in a complimentary
way. We’re specifically drawn to art objects that
tend towards functional design, or for architects
with a conceptual practice.”
