OTHER/factory visit

When we began OTHER last year, one of the first decisions we made was that it should be made as close to home as possible.  Having our entire collection produced in small quantities in the UK allows us to have a hand in what goes on, keep an eye on things and communicate with the […]

The OTHER/family treated themselves to a lil’ outing last night. We know we’ve already been on a Barbican pilgrimage once this week, but when we heard that Architecture In Film was screening Fiona Tan’s Cloud Island last night, we thought we’d indulge ourselves… A sensitive, and beautiful short, it was just that antidote to the […]
