In addition, all products that win the Red Dot are put on show here for at least a year in the breathtaking setting of the former coal mine, which has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 2001. The Red Dot Design Museum attracts somewhere in the region of 150,000 lovers of design and architecture each year as well as being a sought-after location for company and PR events.
