Public tour

On Sunday, 30 September 2018, design fans go on a journey of discovery in the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary product design. From 1–2 p.m., the public guided 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 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. Chic lifestyle accessories, innovative kitchen helpers or well-shaped luminaires – around 2,000 exhibits from 45 nations convey the excellent quality of good design. Touching the products is for many exhibits explicitly allowed since good design becomes especially apparent in use.
