Temporary Shop For Contemporary Design
Long Summer Break
In October 2013 Depot Basel took over the former Bureau de Change at Voltaplatz in Basel as its permanent space. There we conducted a program comprising all the formats we developed.
Back in 2013 the refurbishment of the space took us four months. With the help of the scenography studio EMYL, the multi-talented Moritz Lehner and various other supporting hands we not only developed our universal display system, the Depotgraphy, but also gave the space a new identity.
End of this month, after almost four years, Depot Basel leaves the location. We will continue generating practical and theoretical knowledge in other places after a long summer break – be it in Basel, in Switzerland or somewhere else.
On Friday, 21 July, 20:00 – 23:00, we will host a Potluck dinner, “a meal or party to which each of the guests contributes a dish.” It will be served on the porcelain tableware developed for the campus of the Academy of Art and Design FHNW by the designers Tiziana Vögtli and Stefanie Zweifel. There will be sparkling wine, music by Disco Joe and Xoxo Miro and a surprise program from 21:30 – 22:00.
Bring a dish for the table!
We are looking forward to see everyone!
