Since its conception, the museum has had a number of temporary exhibitions, but its collection has never been on permanent display. Schaudepot aims to address this problem and act as a venue for presenting key objects from the collection to the public, including iconic pieces by Charles & Ray Eames, Verner Panton, Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Gerrit Rietveld, and 3D-printed objects from recent times. It will also function as the second access point to the campus.

The presentation will be complemented by a smaller temporary exhibition dedicated to the “Radical Design” movement of the 1960s. Scandinavian and Italian design, including pieces by Charles and Ray Eames, will be featured on the lower ground level.
