MaDe Participant

Anna Wad Clausen


I am a textile and material designer based in Denmark. I am fascinated by how material design can affect people and environments and vice versa. I work a lot with tactilities when exploring and developing new materials and textiles.

People are an important aspect of my design, and I am very interested in social and empathic design.

Material Narrative
poMace is actually two materials in one. A soft flexible leather-like material, and a coarse and hard material. They are made from pomace from Danish ecological wine production. The leftover grape skins, stems and seeds are a bi-product of the wine industry. The grape pomace has high values of cellulose and sugar, which gives it a good starting point to build a material from. I chose to name the material(s) poMace as a tribute to the raw material. 4. The more dry part with seeds in, can be pressed together and 5. Dehydrate
