With “Design in the Age of Big Data”, the Red Dot Design Museum will feature an exhibition with innovative products that highlight the impact of digitisation on the products we use and the lives we lead. The exhibits include sensors, scanners, fitness trackers and medical devices for monitoring and visualising the human body, but also robots and drones. » More

With more than 2,000 exhibits on display not all of the products get the attention they deserve. This is why the team at the Red Dot Design Museum has each month since October 2018 been selecting a product bringing it into the visitors’ focus, explaining what is special about this product. Naturally, the products of the month are also featured online.

The product of the month in March is the kick scooter "stæp" and it was chosen by Björn Steinhoff, Director PR & Communications at Red Dot. » More

Welcome to the World of Design!

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.

A special exhibit presents itself at a dizzy height: the autogyro “MTOsport” by the German company AutoGyro from Hildesheim, which allows pilot and passenger to enjoy the fascination of flying together. » More
