Make good design and the quality of customary items become experienceable – that is the purpose of the Red Dot Design Museum. With about 2,000 exhibits, the exposition displays the complete range of current product design. Innovative and very shapely everyday objects from about 45 nations annually inform ca. 160,000 visitors about cultural characteristics and enable them to experience award-winning drafts at close range in the hands-on exhibition.
From inventive USB flash drive to multifunctional stove to a gyrocopter pending from the ceiling: On five floors and approximately 4,000 square meters, only products which were rewarded by an international expert jury in one of the world’s largest design competitions – the Red Dot Design Award – are showcased. Special exhibitions on certain topics complete the inspiring insights into the world of design.
