The fifth edition of the charity auction in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen literally promises design objects at hammer prices. Participants and bidders can look forward to numerous well-designed pieces on Sunday, 6 December 2015. Many of them will be auctioned off at a starting price of 1 euro. Young and old – all those who are looking for uncommon Christmas presents for one’s nearest and dearest and lift their bidder number successfully, can take home one design object or the other. Since the number of participants is limited, all those who are interested in attending the auction are asked to register beforehand. The participation is free of charge.
With about 2,000 exhibits, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design – and always stays up to date: After one year, most of the exhibits are sent back to their manufacturers in order to clear space for the arrival of the new Red Dot Award-winning products. But on the second Sunday in Advent, numerous top products go under the hammer for a good cause.
The participation is free.
