About

designer and maker of goggles, eyewear, jewellery and contraptions

I graduated as an engineer in 1995, specialized in applied mechanics in textiles machinery and technologies. Then I have been working as a Research and Development Engineer for 6 years, mostly in composites structures for the ski industry and later for the defense/ aerospace / nuclear industry.
Being not happy with the way the industry works and frustrated by the goals and objectives set by others I decided to experiment and work by myself to create with my own hands what I had in mind.

I purchased a lathe and a milling machine after I quit my job in 2002. And from then on it was just a matter of work and self learning. Goggles were my first successful attempt after I moved to UK in 2004. Since then atomefabrik was created and my small autonomous manufacture started.

The materials I use for my pieces are purchased from engineering suppliers here in England: brass, aluminium alloys, stainless steel, bolts and nuts, and/or local shops (such as the leather) whereas the lenses are purchased in France.
Lenses quality is a very important factor when making pricey eye wear. they are sourced in the Jura mountains in France. It is a famed place where most of the best renowned optics manufactures have established over the past centuries.

Each piece I am working on is made as a unique item.
