For the continuation of Design Miami‘s 10th Anniversary in Basel, the architects Olson Kundig designed Outpost Basel another lounge which brings together highly contrasted influences and materials to make a harmonious and inspirational space. Indeed at Design Miami/2014 last december they designed Collectors Lounge 38 Beams. Olson Kundig they prove again their success with the idea of experience around architecture, articulated in exhibit design, interiors, and connections to urban and rural landscapes. The design brings together diverse geographic, material and cultural elements from America, Japan, Austria and Romania to create a high-design space made from everyday materials. A tribute to the 10th Anniversary of Design Miami/BaselKundig incorporated a series of X-shaped patterns and architectural elements, using commodity materials to create a high-design space. From a distance, Outpost Basel will appear to be a simple dark cube at the west point of the exhibition hall. But as visitors walk closer, they will see the textures and complexity of the structural design. Guests will be welcomed by hosts, who will roll open an iron-wheeled ‘X’ door, to reveal a vibrant inner sanctum of lounge and restaurant areas.

To discover the lounge, it is until 21 June at Design Miami/Basel.
