The title “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” is bestowed each year since 1988 on a design team that stands out through its continuously innovative design work. In 2018, this title of honour goes to Phoenix Design with its teams in Stuttgart, Munich and Shanghai. In line with tradition, Phoenix Design is presenting its design achievements in its own self-designed and realised exhibition, “PHOENIX – First. Now. Next.”, in the Red Dot Design Museum. » More
Current product culture in the midst of industrial architecture: With more than 2,000 exhibits, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents the world's largest exhibition of contemporary design in the former boiler house of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, a former coal mine complex. Innovative and well-shaped objects from around 45 nations make the quality of good design become experienceable at close range because touching and testing many of the exhibits is allowed. From inventive USB flash drive to shapely furniture to a gyrocopter pending from the ceiling: all items were awarded with the Red Dot quality seal in one of the largest international design competitions.
During the summer holidays in North Rhine-Westphalia (from 16 July to 27 August), the Red Dot Design Museum will open its doors also on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for you.
On Tuesday, 28 August, a small area of the museum is closed due to an event.
