Launched in 2011, Depot Basel is a space dedicated to contemporary design, working independently to investigate compelling themes and develop new projects, also functioning as an exchange platform for international professionals from different fields of work and research. The initiative was born from the idea of designers Laura Pregger and Matylda Krzykowski, process designer Moritz Walther and economist Elias Schäfer, designer Julia Landsiedl and the journalist Katharina Altemeier. In 2012, the design journalist Rebekka Kiesewetter joined the original team.
