Red Dot Design Museum Essen
The Red Dot Design Museum Essen in Germany is located in the former boiler house of the coal mine “Zeche Zollverein” which has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 2001. It is one of the most impressive industrial buildings of the first half of the 20th century and was converted by the star architect Lord Norman Foster for its new purpose. With about 2,000 exhibits over an area exceeding 4,000 square metres, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design to around 150,000 visitors each year.
The tradition each year is to celebrate the final highlight of the Red Dot Award: Product Design, the Designers’ Night, in this “cathedral of industrial culture”. The legendary party not only combines unique architecture and modern product design, but also brings the proud Red Dot winners together with representatives from business and the media, and marks the launch of an exclusive special exhibition: Over a period of several weeks, the latest winning objects of the Red Dot Award: Product Design are presented to the visitors of the Red Dot Design Museum Essen in the exhibition “Design on Stage” before they become a part of the permanent exhibition for at least one year.
