Willenz estimates he's spent nearly two months at the CIRVA workshops over the course of five visits, beginning in 2008. The center keeps an apartment above the shop where they can house one on-site artist at a time. "It’s an open, never-ending residency, which is great because I get to come down here whenever I have an idea or whenever I need to get away from the studio and do something more hands-on," says the Belgian designer.
