Our visit to Nadine Goepfert’s home marks the continuation of our special collaboration between Sonos and Freunde von Freunden. We’re on a mission to celebrate the joy of listening out loud, waking up the silent home, and inspiring creativity in every facet of our lives.

 

Music from the Play:5 plays a big role for Nadine, particularly when creative inspiration strikes, indirectly affecting her work.

 

Take a step inside Nadine Goepfert’s Berlin studio and the busy outside world will immediately fade into the background. Light sounds of Frank Ocean’s song, Ivy, filters throughout the space, setting the mood. Music plays a big role for Nadine, particularly when creative inspiration strikes, indirectly affecting her work. As a rather calm and attentive person, music influences her subconscious, pushing her to design complex structures and material solutions.

 

In contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Berlin streets, Nadine Goepfert’s work environment is lovingly curated.

 

Her approach to textile creation has attracted international acclaim. Solange Knowles wore a pink cocoon-like foam sweater from Nadine’s ‘Garments May Vary’ collection in the music video, Cranes in the Sky.

“Solange has a great sense of fashion and art. The video clip is aesthetically staged in a wonderful way, so it’s a real honor for my clothing to be part of it. Aside from the fact that I greatly appreciate the artist musically.”

Most of Nadine’s conceptual designs could be considered works of art. In fact, many are show across museums rather than catwalks. Her approach to fashion is concentrated on the sociological-material connections rather than the temporal aesthetics of clothing. How clothing influences body language, gestures, and habits of daily life inspire her conceptual designs.

In addition to creating her own collections, Nadine also regularly collaborates with renowned Berlin fashion designers like Vladimir Karaleev and Kostas Murkudis. She tinkers with projects at her studio base in the Kurfürstenstraße, where her work absorbs the sounds of clothing. From the rapid chattering of the sewing machine to the shallow thrumming of sewing needles, textile production creates its very own sounds.

“There have been times when I’ve ended up not buying a pair of pants because I didn’t like the sound of the material while walking,” she says with a grin. “Or that of a windbreaker. It rustles and whistles so beautifully when you run your hand across it. Almost like the wind itself.”

In contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Berlin streets, her work environment is lovingly curated. Shapely vases and pretty little bowls with pins reveal subtle flashes of her. The spaces she occupies is a combination of craft room and library. It is where her lively playlists and literary research can birth ideas that redefine wearable art.
