The studio complex where Rene and Tejo have there studio are having an open day on the 19th of June. Each studio has been delegated a different task to work on. Our task is to design a bar. Rene is dead keen on building an ice bar... in the outdoors.. in the middle of the European Summer. It is going to Stone Henge in Ice! He is totally convinced it is a great idea. So we have been running trials in the small freezer and the studio, making locking type mechanisms in ice. Making ice cups, to serve up drinks in etc.
Today we visited his mates factory that stores all the refrigerated and Frozen foods for the biggest Grocery Store in Holland- Albert Hejin. The freezer is the size of a massive industrial warehouse. It sits at a nasty - 21 degrees. We stuck a wheelie bin in the freezer, with a dividing wall placed down the centre to trial out making Stone Henge Blocks.
I think this is the coolest temperature I have ever been in! Thank christ for the boofy jacket.
