Before coming to Eindhoven, I studied metal craftsmanship at Ecole Boulle. This school teaches students the traditional French craft heritage. There, I learned to have a good vision in 3D, precise technical skills and an eye for quality. Some aspects of this education have remained strongly in my mind: as we were forging our own tools with a fire torch and a hammer, I designed my own tools -all laser cut in steel- to construct the ‘Regen’ garments and accessories. I also love all the little technical tricks that make crafts and techniques being so smart. And to conclude, I really enjoy the craftsman routine: spending time in an atelier, being physically active and focused, trying out different tools, making a mess, and having the greatest satisfactory feeling when all the products are finally done and the atelier is clean again.
What fascinates you about designing materials?
First of all I would say that I am a materialist and therefore, I like to touch and feel the matter. I like the weight, the texture and the smell of things. I feel connected to the materials because my senses can relate to them. I like the smell of Argon when I weld, the smell of sheep when I work with wool, the smell of latex when I work on ‘Regen’. All these details give an atmosphere to my days. Besides this, I am seeking unexpected outcomes from common materials. I enjoy playing with their limits, or combine them to extract possibilities they haven’t given yet. When I manage to get a surprising effect, then I feel that I have achieved my goal.
Can you describe your creative process?
This year, Studio Aandacht is running for 15 years and we have been together as a couple for 25 years. To celebrate this we treated ourselves to the newly opened Hide Out apartment in the Michelberger Hotel; The apartment consists of a big white wooden house built inside a huge loft situated in the back of the hotel. In this white house is a bedroom and top of the stairs a smaller bedroom, but we let the children stay at home in order to fully enjoy the sauna, rain shower and bathtub, and o yes on the left we also found a build-in kitchen. So you could actually hide out here if you want. In stead we went on being hero’s in Berlin…
Testosterone cypionate is a slow ester, resembling enanthate. The addition of trenbolone enanthate will provide the strongest AAS available. Enanthate ester means that less mg of trenbolone will be released, while injections shall be administrated twice per week (as with testosterone enanthate & cypionate). Fluoxymesterone is perhaps the strongest andgrogen available per os. It does not aromatize, therefore the subject does not observe any massive gains. What halotestin is so famous for is the tremendous strength it provides to the user, along with muscle density that comes out of it. Again sublingual use is a must, considering that fluoxymesterone is the strongest 17 alkylated oral available.
