“Design on Stage – Winners Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016” will be on show only until 31 July. The largest special exhibition in area in the Red Dot Award’s history presents current prize-winning products in two locations at UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein: From lifestyle accessories to consumer electronics to household helpers: The Red Dot Design Museum displays the most extensive selection of international innovations, completed by further designs in the neighbouring Hall 8.
The exhibition invites for discovering more than 1,000 exhibits, which received a distinction for their good design in the internationally organised “Red Dot Award” competition. Many of the products, which were granted a prize by the specialist jury, can be tested by visitors. From iconic furniture to ergonomic sports equipment to clever household appliances – touching and testing many of the exhibits is allowed.
There are objects for all interests and people of all ages in the special exhibition since it unites products from different fields of everyday life. With its powerful and sensuous appeal of its silhouette, the Ducati XDiavel S enthuses even those who do not have a predilection for motorcycle. Fans of modern consumer electronics will be excited about the Hi-Fi wireless speaker “Cube, Corian Series” with its cosy aesthetics. Young visitors get their money’s worth, too: The award-winning toy cruise ship by German manufacturer Wehrfritz combines fun play with child-oriented design and supports motor skills learning.
Moreover, design lovers who are particularly interested in film and TV technologies get to know the revolutionary hardware and software of the Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2016 in the special exhibition “Creative Video Revolution by Blackmagic Design”. The products were already used in successful movies such as “Avatar”.
