The group OKOLO, founded in Prague in 2009, is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. The four initiators of the project – Adam Štěch, Jakub Štěch, Matěj Činčera and Jan Kloss – independently and individually address design in all its facets, develop concepts, publications, exhibitions and commission products, convey phenomena and make them visible. OKOLO thus has some very similar goals to Depot Basel – yet, while its basis is located at a physical place, its ‘heart’ is a virtual one: the blog www.okoloweb.cz; a digital archive for historical knowledge, contemporary positions and new ideas, and an actively used platform on which the continued activity of OKOLO in the areas of design, architecture, fashion and performing arts becomes visible.

The exhibition OKOLO OFFLINE should show the motivation and dedication of the Czech group and research how digital content and connections can be transferred appropriately into an analogue environment. It will be a physically experiencable mosaic of purely internet-created insights and connections.

For the exhibition at Depot Basel, 25 blog articles from OKOLO spanning over the past 5 years were chosen and made tangible in the form of objects, graphics, films and photos. Visitors will be able to look into the work on projects of the group created in both an on- and offline environment, and buy creations by OKOLO during the exhibition. Additionally, Adam Štěch, Jakub Štěch, Matěj Činčera and Jan Kloss will launch their series MINUTE, a succession of short films on design history, at Depot Basel.

28. March – 27.April 2014
Opening Friday 28.3., 7 PM – 10 PM
Opening Times: Friday, Saturday, 2 PM – 7 PM; Sunday 2 PM – 6 PM

This universal plastic shelving system we have found inside amazing modernist Casa Tabarelli built built by celebrated Carlo Scarpa during the 1960s close to Bolzano.

This fully packed Uten.Silo wall storage designed in 1969 by Dorothee Maurer Becker, wife of Ingo Maurer, shows natural design living composition of everyday life.


Part as a sculpture, part as an interior lighting. This tree-like structure was designed by French decorator Philippe Cheverny during the 1970s. The lamp is made out of steel base and plexiglas tubes and it is one of many similar sculptural experimental lights designed in the decorative opulent style by the 1970s French designers, decorators and artist.

We just opened the pages of Maria Jeglinska's sketchbook to discover some drawn ideas for her project of the Grid vase designed back in 2007.

Marie studied at ECAL at the time and designed vase as an abstract airy object which denies classical typology of the vase in general. "The Grid project started as a research looking into the history of the grid: from historical references, city planning to utopian projects from the 1960's," says Maria. The vases are part of the series of vases and containers made out of aluminum.


We are so proud to launch our latest issue at ECAL presentation during the Salone del Mobile in Milan next month. More info soon!









French artist and sculptor Janine Janet worked as a window decorator for several fashion houses in Paris during the 1950s and 1960s.

Her bizzare sculptures influenced by mannerism, 17th cabinets of curiosities or surrealism at the time, were made out of natural materials and represented strange mythological and dreamy creatures. She worked for Balenciaga, Givenchy, Balmain or Nina Ricci. She has also created the masks and costumes for Jean Cocteau’s film Le Testament d’Orphée and worked for the prince Ali Khan or the Queen Elisabeth II.
