Martin Hunt (1956-1965)

Designer, born 4 September 1942; died 8 June 2018


Martin Hunt, who has died aged 75, was one of Britain’s most distinguished designers. He exercised influence as a member of the faculty of Royal Designers for Industry from 1981 and reached generations of students through his association with the Royal College of Art, where he was successively a star student, a tutor, head of the college’s department of glass (1976-86), senior fellow (1984) and a visiting professor (1997-2000).


But it was as a partner, with David Queensberry, in the design group Queensberry Hunt for 52 years that he produced tableware and glass that reached countless households.
