Depot Basel

Depot Basel is not a fair, nor a festival. Not a museum, a showroom or a gallery. They are a temporary place for contemporary design, with the best intentions. Founded in 2011.

Depot Basel is not a museum, a showroom or a gallery. It is a temporary place for contemporary design – Depot means warehouse – as Laura Pregger, Matylda Krzykowski, Moritz Walther and Elias Schäfer have chosen to name their organisation. A place in which contemporary design is set up for discussion.
The space is  open mainly on request or during exhibitions, projects, lectures, events, therefore it doesn’t have regular opening times.
