Audio Obscura

Music Audio Obscura makes another bold statement in Amsterdam with the announcement of a very special party on February 1st at the Westergas. In the heart of the incredible kinetic SKALAR art installation, by Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray, none other than Peggy Gou will headline the evening. Known for her dreamy flow in tracks such as this years hit ‘Starry Night’, the South-Korean super star will showcase her endless energy.   Never one to miss an opportunity, Audio Obscura will take over the venue and work together with the rest of the team behind SKALAR to create a unique night. The music of Peggy Gou, Kangding Ray and supporting acts will interact in symbiotic fashion with the visuals arranged by Christopher Bauder that make up the installation. The artists will perform from the middle of the incredible circular venue. The masterminds behind SKALAR, musician Kangding Ray and light artist Christopher Bauder, will close off with a special custom techno live AV set for the occasion.   SKALAR is a huge audio-visual art experience from Berlin that lands in Amsterdam’s Gashouder from January 10 to February 5. The installation is powered by Audio Obscura, WHITEvoid and Westergas. It explores the effects of light and sound on human perception, with the creators narrating the journey as light vectors, kinetic mirrors and multi-channel surround sounds interact and evolve in reaction to each other. It seeks to provide a meditation on the fundamental nature and essence of basic human emotions, where light is treated as a solid material for the artists to manipulate as a sculptor would clay or marble.   Audio Obscura makes another bold statement in Amsterdam with the announcement of a very special party on February 1st at the Westergas.

At Givenchy, stars align for their new campaign

Fashion For its Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign, the House of Givenchy revisits its signature “couple” theme with an iconoclastic new pairing. In a glamorous, fresh dichotomy, the House reveals two icons — Charlotte Rampling and Marc Jacobs — in a campaign lensed by the photographer Craig McDean, with guidance from Givenchy Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller. Together and individually, the Paris-based actress and the New York-based designer appear in portraits that boldly celebrate individualistic beauty and the liberated, self-assured attitude so emblematic of Givenchy. The series honors the “Givenchy sitting” style of portraiture, a celebration of strength, wit and innate elegance. It follows the campaign starring Ariana Grande, for the Fall-Winter 2019 season. Wearing directional looks and key accessories from the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, each icon appears in his or her signature style, Rampling in masculine tailoring and Jacobs in more feminine pieces. Both radiate strength of character, their natural grandeur further underscored by a neutral setting. Dual perspectives feature close-ups and three-quarter length images in color and black and white. In single portraits, they offer a personal take on Bond accessories. Dressed in graphic black and white, Rampling folds the Bond shopper under her arm while Jacobs, dressed in a shiny black overcoat, carries a men’s Bond duffle that’s filled to capacity. In a naturalistic three-quarter portrait, Rampling gazes at the viewer with her signature mysterious half-smile, the season’s star handbag, the ID93 in buttery yellow suede, slung casually over her shoulder. In another image, she appears dressed in a trench and smoky aviators with the Mystic bag in cognac leather. A dual portrait shows the stars radiating grace and confidence. Posing back-to-back, they embody a complementary take on the season’s sophisticated red floral motifs. In the campaign’s companion video, Rampling and Jacobs stars appear “as they are”. Rampling - dressed in her signature masculine/feminine style – offers Jacobs a master class in the dramatic arts. With timeless chic and natural grace, the English icon coolly plays foil to the New York-based designer’s extravagant, tongue-in-cheek take on femininity. Surreal and absurd elements show the season’s footwear playing telephone, for example. The Givenchy Spring-Summer 2020 advertising campaign will be released online today and break in the March issue of selected magazines worldwide.

Dr. Martens teams up with A Bathing Ape

Accessories The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month. The legendary streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape' is the first to take a turn. Dr. Martens has revived this creative relationship and is now working with them for the fourth time. BAPE (A Bathing Ape) was founded in 1993 in Tokyo, Japan. The origin of BAPE lies in the Harajuku culture of the early 90s. Their most distinctive design, the 'BAPE 1st Camo', became a legendary status symbol.  BAPE has often used British culture as a source of inspiration. For the 1460 REMASTERED collaboration series, they have made the perfect mix of their own legendary camouflage print and dr. Martens' classical DNA. With this they bring an ode to the history of both brands.  This special edition has eight lace eyes and a black nose of soft leather that is flanked by a green BAPE first camo print. The boot symbolizes the best of both brands. The famous BAPE STA  logo runs across the center of the boot. The yellow BAPE logo on the hi-loop completes the picture.  We are excited to share with you the coming collaboration later this year on @numero_netherlands. The boot is available from 25 January 2020 - in very limited numbers - in selected stores and online via drmartens.com.  The iconic, original Dr. Martens boot 1460 will turn 60 this year, and that may be celebrated. Starting this month, a series of collaborations with 12 world-famous brands follows. Each of these brands has made its own design for the 1460 boot. The first partner in this series is the Japanese streetwear brand 'A Bathing Ape'.  Six decades of self-expression. Six eras in which Dr. Martens has grown with the subcultures that embraced them. Sixty years in which they made their carriers stronger. Dr.Martens has seen the world change drastically. But one thing has remained the same all the time: the 1460 boot. Over the past 60 years, the distinctive silhouette has been shaped and toppled by countless subcultures and freethinkers. The boots mean something else to everyone who tightens their laces. So Dr. Martens transferred the 1460 boat (not only in honor of their anniversary, but also because of the start of a new decade) to 12 innovative and world-famous brands, labels and designers. Together with them Dr. Martens their iconic silhouette in a new jacket. In 2020 a brand new boat will be released once a month.

Fosbury & Sons opens in Amsterdam

Fosbury & Sons opens in Amsterdam

Design Fosbury & Sons has moved into the former Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) in Amsterdam. The final redevelopment phase has been completed - the building, listed as national monument, has been entirely transformed into stylishly appointed offices and work places, inspiring meeting rooms, event spaces, and a restaurant where entrepreneurs and companies can meet and mingle. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht, the first international location of the eponymous Belgian co-working concept, occupies 6,000 sqm. (64,583 sq.ft.) of an imposing monumental building. The iconic premises offer room for more than 250 companies and entrepreneurs. The founders of companies such as Blendle, Van Moof, TicketSwap, Ace & Tate, Top Notch, Tony Chocolonely, The Media Nanny and Temper are among the first members of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht. ‘It’s our first location outside Belgium’, says Stijn Geeraets, co-founder of Fosbury & Sons. ‘It speaks for itself to launch in a leading business hub such as Amsterdam. While researching suitable locations we came across the building’s owners, Millten (Foppe Eshuis and Lennard Rottier) and Million Monkeys (Maarten Beucker Andreae). As partners we opted for a joint venture to operate the former Prinsengrachtziekenhuis. It’s almost unreal that we’ve been able to occupy this beautiful canalside building with so much history. Obviously, we treated it with utmost respect, and we set out to make it a special place for locals. Also, we believe the Netherlands are ready for our vision of beautifully appointed work places with a professional yet welcoming atmosphere’. Art & Design The interior design of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht has been created by design duo Going East. The aim to restore the structure’s former glory and grandeur has been used as a starting point. ‘We decided to reinstall parquet flooring in the suites, just like we had seen in old photographs’, says Going East designer Anaïs Torfs. We intended to recreate an authentic Italian palazzo atmosphere alongside the canals. We emphasized the beautiful arches and some of the dilapidated ceilings have intentionally been retained. This has resulted in an interior where contrasts take centre stage: old vs. new and classic vs. modern, along with detailing in colourful marble, rich wool fabrics and vintage design. Beside design, art plays a pivotal role in the interior design. In collaboration with Grimm Gallery and The Ravestijn Gallery the communal spaces are adorned by modern art and photo works. On display are eye-catching sculptures by American artist Nick van Woert, all curated by Grimm Gallery. Additionally, works by lensman Koen Hauser (The Ravestijn Gallery) are presented which feature a bold and contemporary take on still life. Last but not least, a series of custom artworks by artist Sarah Yu Zeebroek add a Belgian touch. Fosbury & Sons Café Next to the stylish offices and meeting rooms, members are able to meet at the Fosbury & Sons Café. Occupying 230 sqm. (2,476 sq.ft.), it is situated alongside an idyllic and sheltered inner garden. Members can indulge in special dishes and international classics, all freshly prepared on a daily basis by its very own chef. The venue can also be accessed through a half-day membership (breakfast or afternoon treat included) or a full-day membership (lunch included). The building which Fosbury & Sons occupies a 19th century building which was known as Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) until 2014. Since 1994 it served as a branch of Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG Hospital) and gained the status of outpatient clinic. The last beds disappeared two years later. In 2014 the building was sold to Millten and Million Monkeys. Commissioned by real estate developer Millten, and in collaboration with architect Roberto Meyer of MVSA Architects, the monumental building has been thoroughly renovated over the course of five years. About Fosbury & Sons Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first branch outside Belgium of Fosbury & Sons. The company was founded in 2016 by Serge Hannecart, Stijn Geeraets and Maarten Van Gool who set out to radically change the office world with the motto ‘Not Your Ordinary Office’. Following the first location at the WATT Tower in Antwerp, a 7,000 sqm. (75,347 sq.ft.) was launched on the premises of a modernist landmark building in Brussels by Polish-Belgian architect Constantin Brodzki. Additionally, Fosbury & Sons opened two other venues in Brussels in 2019. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first Dutch location of the Antwerp-based company. A second Dutch location in the Amsterdam Westerdok area is currently being developed and is expected to open by the end of this year. Additional branches are to open shortly in Antwerp, Valencia, Ghent, and The Hague. Fosbury & Sons is the answer to bland office space and monotonous work by offering its members not only a pleasant environment, but also full autonomy, flexibility, connectivity with other entrepreneurs and companies, and a necessary dose of fun. Fosbury & Sons adheres to the importance of a balance between work and private life and offers members a professional work place, including useful services which help raise the quality of the aforementioned balance. As a member, you are able to enjoy a professional office with living room-inspired comfort, the services and atmosphere of a hotel, and the fun level that equals having a day off.

Also, we believe the Netherlands are ready for our vision of beautifully appointed work places with a professional yet welcoming atmosphere’. Art & Design The interior design of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht has been created by design duo Going East. The aim to restore the structure’s former glory and grandeur has been used as a starting point. ‘We decided to reinstall parquet flooring in the suites, just like we had seen in old photographs’, says Going East designer Anaïs Torfs. We intended to recreate an authentic Italian palazzo atmosphere alongside the canals. We emphasized the beautiful arches and some of the dilapidated ceilings have intentionally been retained. This has resulted in an interior where contrasts take centre stage: old vs. new and classic vs. modern, along with detailing in colourful marble, rich wool fabrics and vintage design. Beside design, art plays a pivotal role in the interior design. In collaboration with Grimm Gallery and The Ravestijn Gallery the communal spaces are adorned by modern art and photo works. On display are eye-catching sculptures by American artist Nick van Woert, all curated by Grimm Gallery. Additionally, works by lensman Koen Hauser (The Ravestijn Gallery) are presented which feature a bold and contemporary take on still life. Last but not least, a series of custom artworks by artist Sarah Yu Zeebroek add a Belgian touch. Fosbury & Sons Café Next to the stylish offices and meeting rooms, members are able to meet at the Fosbury & Sons Café. Occupying 230 sqm. (2,476 sq.ft.), it is situated alongside an idyllic and sheltered inner garden. Members can indulge in special dishes and international classics, all freshly prepared on a daily basis by its very own chef. The venue can also be accessed through a half-day membership (breakfast or afternoon treat included) or a full-day membership (lunch included). The building which Fosbury & Sons occupies a 19th century building which was known as Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) until 2014. Since 1994 it served as a branch of Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG Hospital) and gained the status of outpatient clinic. The last beds disappeared two years later. In 2014 the building was sold to Millten and Million Monkeys. Commissioned by real estate developer Millten, and in collaboration with architect Roberto Meyer of MVSA Architects, the monumental building has been thoroughly renovated over the course of five years. About Fosbury & Sons Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first branch outside Belgium of Fosbury & Sons. The company was founded in 2016 by Serge Hannecart, Stijn Geeraets and Maarten Van Gool who set out to radically change the office world with the motto ‘Not Your Ordinary Office’. Following the first location at the WATT Tower in Antwerp, a 7,000 sqm. (75,347 sq.ft.) was launched on the premises of a modernist landmark building in Brussels by Polish-Belgian architect Constantin Brodzki. Additionally, Fosbury & Sons opened two other venues in Brussels in 2019. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first Dutch location of the Antwerp-based company. A second Dutch location in the Amsterdam Westerdok area is currently being developed and is expected to open by the end of this year. Additional branches are to open shortly in Antwerp, Valencia, Ghent, and The Hague. Fosbury & Sons is the answer to bland office space and monotonous work by offering its members not only a pleasant environment, but also full autonomy, flexibility, connectivity with other entrepreneurs and companies, and a necessary dose of fun. Fosbury & Sons adheres to the importance of a balance between work and private life and offers members a professional work place, including useful services which help raise the quality of the aforementioned balance. As a member, you are able to enjoy a professional office with living room-inspired comfort, the services and atmosphere of a hotel, and the fun level that equals having a day off. Mind you, your friends and family are equally welcome to enjoy lunch together or to attend one of the many events held on the premises. Needless to say, it is a perfect example of how private life and work are intertwined hassle- free. for prices visit https://fosburyandsons.com

Award-winning restaurant Taiko

Food Taiko Cuisine, the Contemporary Asian Inspired restaurant by chef Schilo van Coevorden at the Conservatorium hotel in the heart of Amsterdam, takes its name from the old Japanese drums with their fabulous rhythm. Every weekend, a Taiko drum-player accompanies the intense, yet refined, Asian flavours of Schilo's dishes with melodic, atmospheric sounds. The style of the menu and kitchen has evolved over the years, influenced by different cuisines from all over the world. The basis, however, always lay and still lies in classic and often simple methods of preparation, which showcase great respect for the purity of fresh local and seasonal products. www.taikocuisine.com In honour of the five-year anniversary of restaurant Taiko in Amsterdam, Executive Chef Schilo van Coevorden takes you on the journey he has taken to become the chef he is right now, celebrating the sources of his inspiration. In 2019 and 2020 five exclusive four-hands dining experiences in collaboration with international chefs selected by Schilo will celebrate this special milestone. The collaborating chefs have influenced Schilo at some point in his career, up to future developments with Taiko in 2020. Expect beautifully composed dinners with modern Japanese influences to traditional French cuisine in combination with Schilo’ssignature dishes. On Sunday 3 and Monday 4 November last year he kicked off with Albert Adrià, known for the world-famous restaurant El Bulli and owner of the gastronomic amusement park: El Barri (Pakta, Enigma, Hoja Santa, Tickets, Bodega 1900). During this evening, Adrià and van Coevorden pay tribute to the Nikkei cuisine, the best of Japanese andMediterranean gastronomy. In February 2020, it is the turn of self-taught chef Hisato Hamada, mastermind behind the $180 sandwich "wagyu katsu sando" and co-owner of the Japanese restaurant concept Waygumafia. In March 2020, van Coevorden cooks with three-star chef Gérald Passedat, owner of Le Petit Nice and according to van Coevorden, the world's best fish chef. In April 2020, top chef Bobby Geetha will visit to Taiko. Geetha is currently responsible as corporate executive chef for Asha’s for 18restaurants in England and the Middle East.

Various chefs from various disciplines who have inspired me in my career path. It is an absolute honour to cooking together with these great chefs. " Newly renovated Taiko Bar is now open. What first started as a playful flirt between kitchen and bar, inspired by a shared love and passion for Asia, has now grown into a new phenomenon – launched on the 5thYear Anniversary of Taiko: Taiko Bar. With excellent service from some of Amsterdam’sbest bartenders, supreme bites from Taiko Cuisine and a cocktail menu that makes youfeel like you’re in a speakeasy in Roppongi, guests can expect all of this from thewelcoming and casual setting of Taiko Bar. On the weekends, DJs create a club-likeatmosphere and there’s a high-energy karaoke night for a memorable night out with friends.
