Craft & Scenography at Depot Basel

Craft & Scenography at Depot Basel

Design Miami/ Basel '12 Review

Basel

During Design Miami/ Basel we are confronted with many galleries showing their perspective on the best of contemporary design. In contrast to this peacockery, we have Depot Basel - a design platform that brings together contemporary crafts people and designers to open a space for dialogue as well as appreciation for design - whether it be collectible or visually pleasing.

From Depot Basel:

There is nothing more thrilling than a good conversation between different disciplines. With the Craft & Scenography presentation, we bring together a range of contemporary cultures, creating an impressive set of references around craft and scenography; some of them are visually pleasing, some are collectable.

Collectable

Depot Basel INFRASTRUCTURE

For the first occasion at Depot Basel in summer 2011, 9 designers were invited to enter a dialogue with the space and the material that was gathered for them. In the one week workshop a broad selection of unique and thrilling pieces were made. Now Depot Basel wants to share these precious pieces with craft-conscious enthusiasts and with those, who appreciate a collector’s piece.

PERSONAL CONTENT

Composition is an important element of design. It is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients, which enables the objects in it to exist at all - to find a balance between emptiness and the use of space. Depot Basel commissioned 13 designers to produce new work for this occasion. Additionally, still-life photographer Christoph Sagel and Depot Basel co-founder Matylda Krzykowski did a photographic journey to the designers’ studios and captured them in the scenography in which they see themselves and their work . The ‘Personal Content’ is displayed in a 2x2m space. Work by A C E, Bastard Collection, Bashko Trybek, Charlotte Talbot, Clemence Seilles, Dik Scheepers, Earnest Studio & Emilie Pallard, Johannes Nagel, Julia Walter, Kaspar Hamacher, Tina Roeder, Tobias Schäfer and Valentin Loellmann.

LA VAGUE at the library

Swiss platform «La Vague« edits self-produced objects. The designers are in control from the idea to the delivery. They will present a collection of original and well-designed products by craftsmen, local factories or themselves in the library of Depot Basel. The library is a separate area in the old grain silo, divided by hanging walls. Dimitri Bähler, Anurag Etchepareborda, Anne Julmy, Linn Kandel and Charlotte Talbot from «La Vague» are planning a surprise visual stimuli for the visitor, which needs to be in everyone’s own space.
