Marie Douel is a designer whose practice focuses on exhibition design & scenography. Her work is dedicated to creating immersive exhibitions. She mixes mediums to reveal the stories behind the projects and multiply the points of views.
Marie Douel (1988) is a French designer. In 2012, she graduated from ECAL/University of Art and Design in Lausanne (Switzerland) after a Craftmanship Diploma in Upholstery-Decoration at Ecole Boulle (2009, Paris, France). Her double education and mixed materials approach encourage her to co-found Hors Pistes in 2013, a nomadic residency program that initiates international encounters between craftsmen and designers in a cross-disciplinary and multicultural setting.
Currently based in Brussels, Marie Douel works between Switzerland, France and Belgium on exhibition design and scenography projects. She collaborates with international museums, institutions and designers including Mudac, Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, MAD Brussels, Sylvain Willenz, CID au Grand-Hornu.
