By the Mediterranean: Interview with Octaevo Founder Marcel Baer

Before we go into the “Octaevo” adventure , can you tell us what you’ve been doing for the last 10 years and how it led you to start your own business ?

10 years ago I had just finished my graphic design studies at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and soon after started working for various design agencies in London and New York.

Interview by Sarah Schug

Erwin’s career path is one with a lot of twists and turns. The Brussels native got a Master in photography from Sint Lukas, took a sneak peek at film studies and is also a trained cook (which comes in handy for the weekly Base team dinners). After having launched his very own gallery “Bullitt” while working at a Tex-Mex restaurant, the multi-talent quickly started to get booked as an exhibition builder and signage designer by renowned museums and art centers such as Wiels, Bozar and MuHKA and even opened up his own multidisciplinary design office. Erwin also designs furniture and recently started teaching at art school La Cambre. At Base he has been working as a spatial designer for a few months now and we had a little chat with the go-getting all-rounder about his job, fixing office doorbells and why he always has a tape measure in his pocket. See pictures of projects at the end of the interview. … more

Partner Dimitri Jeurissen’s Top Ten Picks from Miami Art Basel 2013

Editorial  | 12/10/13 | 

What a zoo! What a scene!
Four or five different fairs, impressive private collections opening their doors , multi-million dollar museums throwing parties,  big exhibition openings , performances in glamorous hotels, car exhibitions in parking lots, concerts in clubs , film projections , Playboy bunnies , Kanye , Pharrell, Rem, Klaus, Chris, Hans-Ulrich, Casey, Tracy, etc…

Three days in Miami is really exhausting! Luckily there is the beach to relax sometimes or have a quiet book launch!

1. As mentioned on twitter my favorite piece is Saadane Afif's collaboration with "Bic" and the "Galeries Lafayette"… where he produced the famous 4 color pen … but all in black … called "Noir C'est Noir."
