The red dot in Prague
The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen introduces in co-operation with the Design Centrum České Republiky selected winning products in the touring exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2006” from 25 August to 20 September in the Prague Mozarteum.
On 24 August 2006, Professor Dr. Peter Zec, Icsid president and initiator of the red dot design award, opened the touring exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2006” in the festive ambience of the Prague Mozarteum. “Since the Czech Republic is becoming more and more important for the international design industry, and several winners of the red dot award: product design come from the east, it was our concern to also make this successful exhibition available to the Czech public,” Zec explained the idea of the touring exhibition. “After a successful co-operation with the Design Centrum České Republiky such as in the exhibition “Czech design” in the red dot design museum last autumn, we are now delighted to be able to work together with our Czech colleagues again,” Zec continued.
With more than 5,000 entries from almost 50 nations the red dot design award is one of the most successful design competitions worldwide. The prize-winning works are honoured with the “red dot” and, following the festive award ceremony, presented to the public in a special exhibition in the red dot design museum. In order to present the outstanding design works not only to visitors in Germany but also to the interested public abroad, a touring exhibition has been compiled which will be on display first in Prague and then also in the Czech city of Brno from 26 September to 22 October 2006.
The touring exhibition will present selected prize-winning products of this year’s red dot award: product design whose award ceremony took place on 26 June 2006 in the Essen Aalto Theatre. The special exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2006” was on show from 27 June to 23 July 2006 in the red dot design museum and is currently presented in Prague before going to Brno.
