Orderly Disorder

Work spaces at different scales can be quite photogenic. When zoomed in close enough, even the most organized system will exhibit departures from order. The following is a collage of candid shots from CPHmade members: Butchers & Bicycles, SØREN SKIFTER, Andersen & Berner, Sort Slips Hvidt Slips, Emdal Colorknit and For Holding Up The Trousers.











Henrik Vibskov & Friends from Copenhagen


In the CPHmade network we’re blessed with all sorts of talent, spread out on a wide range of proud craftsmen. The talent these craftsmen are representing has led them to produce exciting products and participate in quirky and interesting collaborations. In the forthcoming weeks, we’ll look into some of these collaborations, where CPHmade members have been involved.
This week we’ve kept our eyes peeled on 3 local craftsmen who all have been creatively involved with one of the most acknowledged and awarded Danish designers.
Known for collections like “The Land of the Black Carrots”, “Big Wet Shiny Boobies” and “The Human Laundry Service”, Mr. Vibskov has been known for his sharp attention to details and craftsmanship for over a decade now, and is definitely one of the best-known Danish designers around the globe.

He is probably one of the best-known designers on the Danish fashion and art scene. Known for his unique, sculptural and avant-gardistic approach to art and fashion, Mr. Henrik Vibskov has produced more than twenty (!) collections for men, since he graduated from the renowned art-collage Central Saint Martins in 2001. His clothes and art installations are exhibited and distributed in thoroughly selected stores and galleries around the globe.
Mr. Henrik Vibskov’s unique style and quirky mindset has gained great, international recognition and today, Henrik Vibskov is the only Scandinavian designer represented at Men’s Fashion Week in the fashion capital, Paris.
His shows are notoriously known to be quite a different experience, than you’d usually expect from a fashion show, presenting the audience with an explosion of colors, asymmetrical objects and quirky show pieces.
As it turns out, some of the members the CPHmade network have contributed to Mr. Vibskov’s unique universe, and we’re about to reveal whom.

Emdal Colorknit

The talented Ms. Emdal has helped out Henrik Vibskov numerous times. Her signature, the ultra fine knitting of the finest wool materials have contributed to a strong definition and profiling of Mr. Vibskov’s vibrant knit designs.
Ms. Emdal herself is also well known for working with a quite colorful palette in her fantastic knit designs.
PSST. If you like the works of Emdal Colorknt, we actually just managed to get our hands on some of Emdal Colorknit’s eye-catching scarves. Hurry up, and get yours while they’re still available in our Emdal Colorknit Section of our Web-shop.

Andersen & Berner

The proud hatter, Mr. Stig Andersen, is usually known to be quite a busy man during fashion week, and on several occasions, Mr. Stig Andersen has helped Mr. Vibskov on crafting unique showpieces for his collections, and this summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week was no different, and you can see some Mr. Vibskov’s designs hand crafted by Andersen & Berner.
The quite quirky, unusual and eye-catching hats are crafted from the proudest traditions of craftsmanship. If you don’t quite find the hats matching your particular taste, may we suggest that you sneaked a peek in our web-shop, where you can find a more “ordinary” selection, and Buy Andersen & Berner Hats.


Mr.diverse mana man of many talents, and besides fashion he is also strongly involved in art. He has been involved in several art projects, i.e. The Fringe Project, which he established in collaboration with the artist Andreas Emenius.
His approach to art is synonymous with his approach to fashion; quirky, sculpturous.
In one of his art exhbitions, Basic Instincts, our good friends from WoodCouture helped out Mr. Vibskov by doing what they do best: creating astonishing shapes and silhouettes in all sorts of wood.

The CPHmade guide to Crafts Fair Copenhagen 2013

The late summer in Copenhagen means fairs and fashion. As Copenhagen recently finished up on Copenhagen Fashion Week, Defining Scandinavia it’s time for yet another fair. This time it’s open for everyone, and the admittance is FREE of charge.

If you didn’t find the time to visit the Defining Scandinavia, we’ve got good news for you! The annual event the Crafts Fair in Copenhagen is  just around the corner, and tomorrow, Thursday, you can experience contemporary design in cosy, classic surroundings on Vor Frue Plads.
Throughout the exhibition, you’ll find some of the most talented craftsmen Denmark has to offer and, of course CPHmade is strongly represented.
As 7 (!!!) CPHmade members are represented at this fair, we’ve made things easy for you, and made a little guide of “Must-see” stands on the fair.

We’ll start off in in the jewellery section, where you can meet Emquies-Holstein, Karina Hunn and Mads Heindorf.

Emquies Holstein

The goldsmith duo Emquies-Holstein, who have gained quite some attention from Danish fashion magazines lately, have brought a variety of their fantastic jewellery to this fair.
Jewellery from Emquies-Holstein is craftsmanship at an extremely high level, and all the astonishing pieces from Emquies-Holstein has that luxurious feeling you’d want in a piece of jewellery.

Hunn Jewellery

The never not-workking jewellery designer, Karina Hunnerup, is also ready to show you examples of her hard work on Crafts Fair 2013.

Hunn crafts and designs jewellery from a poetic, and graphically light point of view. Every piece designed by Ms. Hunnerup is crafted in hand, and is the result of endless hours of refining precious stones into perfectly shaped accessories.

Make sure to find your way to Hunn Jewellery’s stand on the CRAFTS Fair.

Mads Heindorf

To those of you who may not now the jewellery designer Mads Heindorf, we can assure you that he is the real deal.

Mr. Heindorf is blessed with an unique talent for designing raw, yet sophisticated jewellery for both men and women. He creates his very own collections, and is constantly exploring and seeking the very best, and he usually combines eye-catching details with rough surfaces to create a fine balance and contrast between the sophisticated and raw look.

In the ceramics section, we suggest you that you’ll find your way to the stands of Tina Maria Bentsen, Signe Schjøth and Signe Emdal.

Tina Marie Bentsen

The busy ceramist Tina Marie Bentsen, who was also participating at Defining Scandinavia, is ready to present her creations at the Crafts Fair 2013.

Ms. Bentsen is usually known for her clean and minimal designs, with quirky details. But Ms. Bentsen’s designs are not all crafted from the “usual” shapes you’d expect of ceramics. For instance she’s quite famous for her three dimensional cloud-mobile, which we have a keen eye on.
if you’re not able to visit the Crafts Fair, check out our selection of Tina Maria Bentsen products in our WEBSHOP.

Signe Schjøth

Ms. Signe Schjøth used to work as an acknowledged ceramic artist at major exhibitions, and her creations exudes a playful imagination.
Ms. Schjøth’s talent, and artistically visual approach to ceramic designs, is one of the main reasons her works of art are exhibited in venues like The National Arts Foundation. Make sure to find your way to Ms. Schjøth’s stand.

In the accessories department, CPHmade is represented by Monomade and Emdal Colorknit.


May we strongly suggest that you make your way to Monomade’s stand.
Monomade is a Copenhagen-based interior design company, who seek to combine simplicity and elegancy with a with contemporary design. The results are simple, geometric shapes crafted in exquisite materials by hand.
If you can’t make it to the Crafts Fair – you can check our selection, where you can buy Monomade products.

Emdal Colorknit

Finally, we most definitely recommend that you find your way to Signe Emdal’s stand as well. Emdal Colorknit is an absolute expert when it comes to transforming digitally created visuals into the most fantastic knitted scarves you can imagine.
Most recently, Emdal Colorknit collaborated with the National Gallery of Denmark on a special edition of the “Wearable Hug”, and now Emdal Colorknit is ready with a new collection of stunning scarves, which she is ready to show you on the Crafts Fair.

The making of a wearable hug!

As you may remember, the talented crafts(wo)man Signe Emdal was involved in a very interesting collaboration with the National Gallery of Denmark.
Signe’s company, Emdal Colorknit, is well known for her scarf called “a wearable hug”, and for the National Gallery of Denmark’s recent exhibtion “Flowers and Worldviews”, Emdal Colorknit crafted and designed two astonishing wearable hugs.
When we first announced the interesting collaboration, we showed you pictures of the nicely designed scarves, and now we’re ready with a nice video, where you can see “the making of” the special edition of the wearable hug. Enjoy!
