Ibi Trier Mørch (1910-80)
Danish silversmith, architect and designer graduated from the School of Architecture in 1944 and worked in various studios, including Sweden 1937-1940.
She was active in the Student Association and was a leader in the founding of the Society for Industrial Design and the National Association of Danish Crafts. She was also a prolific author.
Her design work began with silver designs for A. Michelsen. Later she worked with Grethe Meyer on her glass designs and was also responsible for a number of exhibitions.
From 1951-53 she taught at Goldsmith’s College and from 1956-64 at the School of Industrial Design, but she insisted on keeping her freedom as a designer.
Although she entered many competitions and often won prizes, her designs were rarely adopted for industrial production.
