On Sunday, 12 July 2015, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen offers a guided tour of the current special exhibition for families. From 3 –4.30 p.m., young and old will meet this year’s best product designs and will be invited to test some of them: Touching many of the exhibits is explicitly allowed.

More than 1,000 products by designers and manufacturers from around the world: With the exhibition “Design on Stage”, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents the winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015. From avant-garde consumer electronics to elaborate household items to ergonomic furniture: All of the exhibits have been evaluated by a jury of international design experts during a several days lasting process before being awarded the sought-after Red Dot. In its origins, the quality seal has been awarded since 1955. It decorates only products which fascinated the expert panel with outstanding functionality, a high degree of innovation and a balanced form language.

In the midst of inspiring industrial architecture, visitors experience the top achievements of the competition’s 31 categories. Portraits of the designers who created the outstanding products as well as of the jury members complete the winners’ exhibition. A special place is occupied by the presentation of the Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2015.
