As part of our second occurrence ‘SCREENING 02′ in the DEPOT BASEL we screen the short documentary of our first occurrence “PRELUDE 01″, explaining how all furniture pieces at DEPOT BASEL came to existence. The documentary repeated throughout the day from 30th September – 2nd October.

On Friday evening will be a screening of another documentary: “The House In The Park” directed by Swiss local Hercli Bundi. The film follows the work of four Basel-based Architecture offices who were charged with designing a new city park in China. It explores the challenges and demands on working in and for another culture. Through this the spectators get the possibility to reflect on their own design expectations. After the screening will be a conversation with the architects, the director Hercli Bundi and the designers of INCHfurniture, who provided the Swiss pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai with furniture.

The furniture collection will be on display on this weekend and again between 14-16 October 2011 during our third occurrence ‘INSIGHT 03′ as addition to the existing exhibition.
