Textile and colour designer Margrethe Odgaard works with colour as a full, sensory perception. With her intense focus on the interaction of colour, material and light, she aims to become clearer about how we as humans experience and emotionally connect with the world around us.
Odgaard shares her time equally between commercial collaborations and an artistic practice based on self-initiated research. On her client list are companies as Kvadrat, Muuto, Montana, HAY, and IKEA, and her exhibition catalogue includes solo exhibitions at Willumsen’s Museum (DK), Röhsska Museum (SE), Designmuseo Helsinki (FI), and Munkeruphus (DK).
In 2015 she received the Three-year work grant from The Danish Arts Foundation and in 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Award (SE).
Before setting up her design studio in 2013, Odgaard worked as a printing assistant at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, USA, followed by seven years as textile designer in the French fashion company EPICE. She graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2005 with additional studies at Rhode Island School of Design in USA.
