The Red Dot App

When outstanding product design, award-winning communication design and design concepts from all over the world come together in one app, the result is above all else a visually stunning source of inspiration for every designer, architect, journalist, student and consumer.

Winners of the Red Dot Award can present their award-winning products in the Red Dot App. More than 2,500 award-winning designs are already included in the app and can be viewed any time and anywhere. App users can quickly bookmark favourites and directly access information on products, projects and designers. With just a few clicks, they can share favourite products with friends through all established social media channels, thus spreading news about the products and projects quickly. In addition, six new “Products of the Day” are introduced on the homepage each day, allowing app users to familiarise themselves gradually with the whole range of award-winning design.

An additional bonus of the app is the Red Dot Maps function. This function can be used to guide users to nearby design museums, design fairs and events, design shops that sell products which have won the Red Dot and showrooms for well-known brands, regardless of where the user happens to be. More than 25,000 design locations and design-related events are already integrated in the app.

Jury members and other personalities involved in the Red Dot Award also provide insider hints for design locations, attractions, restaurants or hotels in their home-towns in the form of “designer routes”. These routes can also be filtered by personal interest or time of day, customised and saved as your own route.

The Red Dot App is a digital signpost through the World of Design for smartphones and tablets. The app for Apple and Android devices is free of charge and can be downloaded here:
