More about 'social and aware' >>.
The Manon style can be described as personal minimalism, clean and pure design, modern yet timeless. A touch of influence of architecture and urban design is always apparent in the form or function of the products. 'Our dream is to create timeless products that are functional and make modern life just that little bit easier. Products that preferably can be used for different purposes.' The Manon collection is comfortable, easy to combine and sustainable in both design and quality.
Manon Garritsen graduated with a Masters degree in urbanism from Delft University of Technology in 2001 and 5 years later as fashion designer from Artemis Styling Academy in Rotterdam. After 8 years work experience as urban designer, time had come to translate the inspiration and many ideas to a new label: Manon. Manon began in early 2010 to design products from a personal need and desire as urban designer, which were simple, stylish and functional. Her first product was the A3 bag, a large felt bag in which A3 size documents, a 17-inch laptop and much more fitted. Now the Manon collection contains bags, covers and sleeves for the iPad, MacBook and iPhone. In 2011 she launched her first Manon cushion collection.
