Spotlight On: Manu
Today you will find Johannes Weege at the helm. Like founder Ilse Ebert, he is always looking for new ideas and has a strong connection with customers and the jewellery sector, viewing it as an opportunity for collaboration and exchange. His learnings help guide the designers and hone the collection to suit current customer desires.
The Manu design and production team consists of an intimate group of designers and goldsmiths, who create two new collections each year. Each team member brings their own personal charm and craftsmanship to the table, which results in a broad variety of styles. Nevertheless they present a cohesive collection through their commitment to precision and quality, use of bimetals throughout all their designs, and also strict adherence to Manu founding principles of affordable, contemporary jewellery to be worn everyday.
Whether you’ve fallen for a beautifully designed bracelet, alternative engagement ring, or statement necklace, Manu designs are almost exclusively constructed by hand from sheet and square wire. This in itself brings design challenges for their often voluminous work with fluid lines. Because they do not take advantage of larger production processes like CAD and casting, you are guaranteed that every piece is made by hand from start to finish and produced in only very small runs.
