Design Curios
The fully immersive Design Curio booths punctuate the main exhibition hall of the fair, acting as spaces in which to focus on projects, ideas, and design-related phenomena not traditionally found in the gallery program.
Curios in Basel include:
Andy Coolquitt’s Guatemala City-inspired domestic tableau
Igor Krestovsky for Soviet housecommunes
Max Lamb’s engineered marble, Marmoreal
Sibylle Stœckli presented by Artsy

Design at large
As author of some of the world’s most iconic and storied hotels, André Balazs has established a formidable reputation as an innovator and curator. An early collector
of architecture and a great proponent of design, Balazs has collaborated with incredible talent over the years to create these environments. He remains a trailblazer as a collector, creator and collaborator, and was therefore considered the perfect helmsman for this year’s Design at Large program.
Within Balazs’ architectural focus, Design at Large presents a prefabricated filling station designed by Jean Prouvé; a nomadic folly imagined by Edouard François;
Shigeru Ban’s elegant and light-infused paper teahouse; and a sculptural troglodyte pool house created by Atelier Van Lieshout, amongst other structures installed in the 2000 square meter Herzog & de Meuron designed Event Hall. The structures selected for Balazs’ edition of Design at Large follow themes of demountability, modularity and environmental awareness, offering perfect examples of a growing interest in the development of manufactured, reusable, customizable and sustainable buildings.
