What does the future Musterzimmer look like? According to the integral principles of the Swiss Werkbund in the 1920ies, Swiss designers show their vision of the essential elements in respect to material, construction, form and function.

With: Daniel Wehrli; Stéphanie Baechler; Katia Ritz & Florian Hauswirth; Nicola Stäubli;Giorgia Zanellato & Mauro Tittoto; Meret Probst; Sibylle Stoeckli; David Schäublin & Karin Hueber; Postfossil; Laetitia Florin 

 

No Function – No Sense?

At the same time as “Musterzimmer” Depot Basel shows also the exhibition “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.

With: Alexandre Bettler (London); Marc Birri (Berlin, Basel); Laetitia de Allegri (London); David Glättli & Shiho Ueda (Osaka, Zürich); Livia Lauber und Loris Jaccard (London); Anne Lutz (Paris); Arno Mathies (London) ; Julia Modolo und Jean-Philippe Bonzon (Shanghai); Meret Probst (London) ; Mathias Renner (London); Moritz Schlatter  (Antwerpen, Zürich); Julie Usel (London); Dieter Glauser, Michael Häne und Jacques Borel
