Ciprian Manda’s professional career began in the office of architect Dorin Ştefan, where he had to deal with complex and interesting projects, which required a great attention to detail and contact with the process of construction itself. His studio was launched in 2010 and the Silva Artis brand in 2011 as a further exploration of shapes and materials. For Ciprian Manda, direct contact with the material matters greatly. The craft that turns a rough plank into a design object is particularly important and sometimes changes the initial idea resulting from a design process. He believes that the details that give the flavor to each piece can only appear from a process that intersects the intellectual process and the physical act of craft.
Clear, purist shapes define the Massive series, the cut beech trunk, dominating the pieces. Suited in a more sober context, objects in the Massive series give class to space, through the luxuriousness of wood.
