Simultaneously to the exhibition ‘Musterzimmer’ Depot Basel shows also  ‘No Function – No Sense?.’ Expatriate Swiss designers and artists designed objects without function and reflect thereby their self-understanding and deal among other issues with the (supposed?) boundaries between art and design, with function and context and with the relation between beauty and purpose.
