Depot Basel – A dialogue

A grain silo is reutilised. Nine international designers give answers to the question: What is missing in the Depot Basel space? Over one week they hammered, cut and built. We present the results from Saturday 27th August until Sunday 4th September.

Depot Basel shows why design concerns each and everyone of us. It provides an insight into transnational design activities, develops new forms of presentation and education and thus illustrates contemporary design in all its facets. Depot Basel is backed by the association ‘Verein für anspruchsvolle Alltagskultur,’ which together with its members — designers, design theorists and economists — conjoins theoretical and practical approaches.
