5 Questions
Marion Deuchars

What is your favourite place to visit in London?
The British Museum. The best membership I’ve ever bought as it encourages me to pop in a lot. I saw something that caught my eye recently: In a dusty case, some unusual tools brought back by an explorer from the Inuits in the 1800’s. The Inuits had very little wood to make tools but a shower of meteorites had provided them with metal which they shaped into these beautiful objects.

Are you a less is more or more is more person?
Less, for sure.

What does AGI mean to you?
What it means to most AGI members I think: friendship. The chance to meet some of the most amazing designers in the world and have a chat. People’s stories help give a different perspective to their work.

How do you take your tea?
I drink mainly Dragonfly Rooibos Chai, it’s become the Tetley in our house. Very addictive.

What has been your favourite collaboration?
I would have to say with my husband; Angus Hyland. We collaborate all the time, even when we don’t think we are! I value his opinion and thoughts. I feel so lucky to have that.
