Designer Manri on the inspiration for the Balance Collection:
‘There are many different ways of thinking in the world.
The book ‘Metamorphosis’ by Franz Kafka was recommended reading when I was a student. When I picked it up again after all these years, I felt the same shock as the very first time.
‘awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect’
Somehow, this work makes me feel empathy and has become a favourite.
Another day, my eyes landed on the words of Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe.
‘He who enjoys doing and enjoys what he has done is happy’
Those words were so strong I felt them propel me forward.
Though they are contrasting thoughts, both are mindful.
That is, balance is important.’
