During the last months, we have been collaborating with Depot Basel for the preparations of our upcoming exhibition Musterzimmer. 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 Tittolo, Meret Probst, Sibylle Stoeckli, David Schäublin & Karin Hueber, Postfossil, Laetitia Florin.
Next to the Musterzimmer exhibition, Depot Basel shows 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: Alexandre Bettler, Marc Birri, Laetitia de Allegri, David Glättli & Shiho Ueda, Livia Lauber und Loris Jaccard, Anne Lutz, Arno Mathies, Julia Modolo & Jean-Philippe Bonzon, Meret Probst, Mathias Renner, Moritz Schlatter, Julie Usel, Dieter Glauser, Michael Häne and Jacques Borel.
