Welcome to the World of Design!

Current product culture in the midst of industrial architecture: With more than 2,000 exhibits, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents the world's largest exhibition of contemporary design in the former boiler house of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, a former coal mine complex. Innovative and well-shaped objects from around 45 nations make the quality of good design become experienceable at close range because touching and testing many of the exhibits is allowed. From inventive USB flash drive to shapely furniture to a gyrocopter pending from the ceiling: all items were awarded with the Red Dot quality seal in one of the largest international design competitions.

In its more than 60 years of history, numerous designers had a formative influence on the visual appearance of the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen. This becomes apparent when looking at a selection of exhibition posters which are on show in the Red Dot Design Museum’s staircase. » More
