DEPOT BASEL invited 13 designers to show a set of works alongside an self initiated artistic drawing. A blank sheet of paper becomes the designer’s playground, the designer becomes a draftsman.

Drawings express their own quality and unique aesthetic. While products usually have to be meticulously planned and developed over long periods, and thus transport the rich imaginary world of the author only in a smoothened and filtered way, in a drawing the thoughts, inspirations, poetry and imagination can be spontaneously and directly expressed.

Drawing has been a popular and fundamental means of public expression throughout history. The wide availability of instruments makes drawing more common than most other media for the expression of thought and simple, and at times advanced means of communicating visual ideas.

The exhibition shows each designers attitude towards creating an object and a drawing – 13 individual exhibitions within a group show.
