Marie Hugsted

Designer and creator of thought-provoking talks, books and workshops.

As a textile designer and teacher I work in the field between culture, design and communication. My core focus is to share knowledge of design. For more than ten years I have run workshops about Danish design for children, adolescents and grown ups all over the world, including Denmark, Japan and Morocco.

I write educational material for the Danish Ministry of Education, Design Museum Denmark and the publisher Gyldendal. Recently my book “The Little Book of Danish Design” was translated into English.

I teach at the design school Textilskolen and am a freelance designer. I also work as the vice president of the textile association Kontempo and am an appointed censor at the Danish design educations.
