Depot Stools is a minimalist stool design created by Rotterdam-based designer Phil Procter in collaboration with Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. The studio’s collaboration with Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen presents Piranesi on Paper, an exhibition that studies the work of Italian artist, printmaker, and trader Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Curated by Mireille Link and designed by Phil Procter, the exhibition showcases rarely seen prints and books of Piranesi alongside extensive research into the heritage of the 751 Piranesi works in the collection of the Boijmans Van Beuningen. The exhibition employs magnification, light boxes, and projections to invite visitors to examine the textures and hidden details of Piranesi’s Oeuvre. The partnership between Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen and Phil Procter’s Studio will lead to practical research and an extensive collection of elements that study, express, and serve the demands of the world’s first publicly accessible art storage. The Depot benefits from a versatile seating system that offers infinite possibilities by using a single stainless steel stool that can be customized and duplicated in various configurations. This adaptable solution allows for the flexible partitioning, expansion, and mobility of seating arrangements to suit the Depot’s changing needs.
