Schaudepot is the name given by the Museum für Gestaltung to its new place in the Toni-Areal in Zurich West where exhibitions are shown and the over 500 000 objects that make up its Poster, Design, Applied Art and Graphics Collections are united under one roof. For the first time, guided tours through the archives enable the general public to see these internationally significant collections.
“100 Years of Swiss Design” is the opening exhibition held in the Schaudepot and at the same time the first showing on this very broad scale of the achievements of Swiss design.

A light switch, seating or sneakers – design from Switzerland has always been regarded as honest, precise, unfussy and user- friendly. This look at one hundred years of design history leads along locally anchored traditions to the design approaches of modernism and the tasks currently facing a globally networked generation of designers. With more than 800 objects from the Design Collection, the largest collection of Swiss design world-wide, the opening exhibition in the Schaudepot presents the first comprehensive show of Swiss design achievements. Everyday objects as well as iconic pieces of furniture by Le Corbusier, Max Bill, Hans Bellmann or Willy Guhl are shown in the form of sketches, prototypes, models, advertising films and photographs, opening up new perspectives of Switzerland as a design country.

Contemporary approaches will be shown in the Raum Nord of the Schaudepot up to 15 March 2015. In addition to ten film recordings of interviews with key Swiss designers, there will be a focus on innovative areas of work in post-industrial Switzerland and a contribution on design education and mediation.
