“Design at the fingertips: Material studies in the Red Dot Design Museum”
On Tuesday, 22 March 2016 from 3–4.30 p.m., the Red Dot Design Museum Essen invites kids from eight to ten years to join a tour of a special kind. Under the motto “Design at the fingertips”, the kids will discover industrial materials. They are decisive regarding the fact that an item feels good, whether it is cold or warm, whether it is experienced as smooth or rough. In playful exercises, the children feel, listen to and learn about the characteristics of various materials and are being let into the secrets of material studies.

“The ABC in design: Discovery tour in the Red Dot Design Museum”
On Wednesday, 23 March 2016 from 3–4.30 p.m., the Red Dot Design Museum Essen offers an exciting tour for children from six to seven years. Under the motto “The ABC in design”, tomorrow’s creative minds will go on a journey of discovery in the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design. Playful exercises facilitate them with a special observing technique, thus training their perception by “stretching” their imagination. This way, they learn to really see the things they look at – such as the hammer, which is shaped like the letter “T”.
