ABOUT

 

Hello & welcome

I am Signe Emdal - a danish master artisan and designer in fiber materials, crafting soft textile concepts since 2007.

I like to transend ambience and emotions into material constructions with physical textile tools. This process is organic and kind with focus on crafting a softer way of collaborating in todays busy world.

I keep asking myself, how I can use my intuitive crafting skills to produce serenity and calmness for the everyday life ?

I move naturally between methods that origins from poetry, fine art, cinematography, design, crafts & music. The soft fabrics has always been a way for me to express poetry in a physical way.

In collaborations I have a very strong sense of knowing combined with my technical skills, that gives clients new insights and innovative value.

I work with private clients, museums, galleries, interior designers, set designers, architects, fashion brands, the hospitality industry, commercial brands, researchers, scientists & artists. I adore working across disciplins.

ABOUT EMDAL STUDIO

Emdal Studio is a multidiciplinary studio crafting textiles with soft ambience. We build radiant fabrics for intimate decor & accessories, always seeking to create materials with essense and not just surface designs. This might be the key to why Emdals fabrics are experienced by clients like a physical embrace or a hug.

The studio is currently based in Copenhagen by the sea, but Signe enjoys working from nomadic offices at remote artist residencies around the world. She has recieved a long line of fundings, grands and prices to keep exploring and developing beauty for the world.

Signe is an experienced digital textile machine technician, with an additional master in textile design from danish Designskolen Kolding 2007. She is constantly exploring new methods and techniques in material constructions and performs a contemporary approach to the matter of fabrics. She knows how to create digital fabrics with a sense of handcrafted romantic feeling and she handcrafts fiber-materials that puzzle the eyes.

In 2019, Signe is exploring an old analogue carpet loom and retro film shooting, in both, feeling into colours, layers and textures of nature. She is also interested in “crafting silence” and how memory is stored in the physical body.

a free Proces

inspired by the romantic GARDEN

“..intrigued by the poetry of nature, Signe combines a free heart with the solid hands of a gardener, scanning ambiences and transcending the informations into colourful layers of textile constructions, through a variety of digital and analogue textile machinery, raw yarns, fibers and photography. Within the right serene conditions and locations she hand builds materials and fuse old textile methods with contemporary tools. The locations matters. The spaces where you live & work, will shape your outcome and your mind, just like the plants in your garden will shape and grow from your personal emotional style.”
