The 370-square-metre Outpost Basel lounge – a cubic enclosure paired with an open seating area – is hosted at the Messe Basel exhibition centre in the Swiss city. The pavilion’s design features an eclectic mix of materials and styles from Japan, Austria and the US.

The exterior is made of charred wooden bricks, giving the six-metre-tall pavilion a dark appearance. The bricks were made by Holzindustrie Schweighofer, an Austrian company founded more than 400 years ago

This year marks the 10th anniversary for the Design Miami fair at Art Basel. To pay tribute, the firm incorporated a series of X-shaped elements – a reference to the roman numeral for 10.
