What do you collect? “My favorite thing to collect, aside from bicycles, are antique tools. The more worn and obscure, the better. On the left is a pair of clippers someone brought me from a market in Russia; on the right is a wood carving–plane from 1700s, which came from an amazing antique tool shop in Amsterdam. Most of the stuff they carry is from the 1600s or 1700s, and each tool is so exquisite and beautiful — and much more specialized than anything we have today. I have six different kinds of hammers that I’ve never seen before. I like to try and figure out how they were used. They were expensive, so they were made with a lot of care, and they often have the initials of their maker stamped on them. It just speaks of a different world.”
