Public tour of the Red Dot Design Museum

08 August 2014
11:00 - 12:30 h

On Friday, 8 August 2014, design fans and all those who want to become it go on a journey of discovery in the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary product design. From 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., the public tour of the Red Dot Design Museum Essen informs about latest industrial design, product culture and the fascinating architecture of the house.

The one hour and a half tour of the former boiler house of Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex allows for interesting insights into the world of well-shaped and sophisticated designs. Thereby, visitors learn about latest trends in the various fields of international product design, about cultural and country-specific characteristics and how design has changed over the years.

Moreover, the exploration of the “Design Experience Exhibition” invites visitors to touch around and get surprised by the design of everyday items. This way, visitors experience materials and forms in a completely different perspective and meet the various aspects of prizewinning design. The special exhibition sharpens the power of judgment and imparts the basics of good design.

Participation fee: 5 € per person plus regular admission
Admission: 6 € (Reduced: 4 €)
Children under 12: Free admission

As the group size allows for a maximum of 25 participants, the Red Dot Design Museum kindly asks for previous registration by phone on +49 201 30104-60 or via e-mail to museum(at)
