“I was looking for something round,” says Winy Maas, the puckish frontman of MVRDV, describing the origins of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. This open archive for the city’s art museum now stands as a colossal mirrored bowl in Rotterdam’s Museumpark, reflecting the surroundings in a surreal panorama. “The interns had put a big rectangular block of Styrofoam on the site model,” Maas recalls. “It was too rude. I thought something round would be nicer to our neighbours, so I replaced it with a mug. Then we wanted to reduce the footprint, so I grabbed the stainless steel bowl, with its nice mirroring aspect. That was it.”
Silver Cup Depot x MVRDV
Together with MVRDV, the architects of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, we created the Depot x MVRDV Silver Cup. Based on the technical drawing to scale of the Depot. It has a reflective silver glazing, made of porcelain.
