Two key themes are reflected across Anne Birgitte Hansen’s work: the inspiration nature provides and the interaction between the designer’s drawings and paintings and the practicalities of the industrial production process. Originally from the Danish island of Bornholm, Anne Birgitte Hansen was fascinated by weaving and began at an early age. Subsequently, she attended the School of Arts Crafts and Design in Copenhagen where she studied Industrial Design. She went on to attend “Fondazione Arte della Seta” in Florence, where her love affair with Italy began and she studied woven replicas of old renaissance textiles. Always innovative and simple, Anne Birgitte Hansen’s textile collections are remarkably diverse, ranging from simple woven upholstery to printed motif-laden curtain fabrics.
