After opening the doors of his new studio in Amsterdam to Freund von Freunden, part of a series of profiles for Vitra Magazine, our friend Joachim Baan presented last week his latest project: Our Current Obsessions. Being a mix of studio, gallery, shop, brand and publication, Our Current Obsessions fits within the four walls of the studio his tastes, passions and inspirations. Creator of the blog Another Something and confessed lover of all things beautiful, Baan chose the theme 'Noir' to launch his first observation to the world of art, design, food and lifestyle. Through a series of products and curiosities in black, Our Current Obessions displays an unique and curious relationship between objects through the exploitation of this dense and mysterious tone. In addition to the beautiful bags of Gertrud & George, you can find products by Lapka, Tenue de Nîmes, Azami, Skins Cosmetics, Mendo Books and more.
"Our Current Obsession is focusing on everything that moves us. It is that obsession, digging really deep into one theme and coming up with all the knowledge one could find, filtering out the relevant and sharing the inspiring world behind and around every object, place or person."
