In 2007, Joachim Baan founded Another Something & Co, a creative platform which went on to develop a steady fan base. Earlier this month, the team of AS&Co have moved on to the next chapter in the history of their project with the opening of their very own hybrid space housing their studio, a shop and an exhibition space, located on one of Amsterdam’s largest canals. As the space was conceived as the place where all the things that AS&Co likes and admires would be gathered ''in the analogue world'', it was rather fittingly named ‘Our Current Obsessions’. Seen as an extension of AS&Co’s online content and their other creative activities, Our Current Obsessions will be hosting exhibitions and a selection of items for sale, all chosen based on a specific theme that will be explored in depth both online and offline. The very first exhibition in the new space is dedicated to the colour black (with which we also have a long-standing affinity). Titled ‘Noir’, the exhibition includes a collaboration with Swiss lifestyle brand Gertrud & George (featuring their full collection of 21 black leather bags), as well as several other artworks, accessories, products and curiosities worth checking out.
