After graduating from the University of the Philippines with a degree in Interior Design and a quick year in Central St. Martins, she further honed her craft in an apprenticeship under revered industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue. It was during that time that she was able to create the Float Table Lamp.
In addition to this, the opportunities kept coming her way, and rode with her flowing creativity. In 2014, she was one of the six selected artists to showcase at the “Asia’s Rising Talents” debut show of the prestigious interior design exhibition Maison et Objet Asia.
What her mind conceives, her art follows. It is only fitting then that her design concept filled with fantastical creatures, featuring a bevy of whimsical figures borne out of her own imagination, got picked up this season by the Paris Design Week council. At the A Design Experience exhibit at the Galerie Joseph in Marais, Paris, France, Lilianna Manahan is the only Filipino designer hailing from the Philippines.
