Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015

In search of good design and innovations

Since the beginning of November the registration phase for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 has been running. The competition, which origins date back to 1954, is one of the world’s largest and most distinguished design competitions. Manufacturers and designers from more than 75 countries take part. Chosen by an independent and renowned jury, the award increases the visibility of designers and companies, brands and products. The use of the Red Dot label is exclusively reserved for the winners of the competition. 

Exhibition: Formosa Forms

Design trends in technology and lifestyle from Taiwan

From the beginning of October to the end of November 2014, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen presents “Formosa Forms – Design trends in technology and lifestyle from Taiwan”. Millions of people around the globe use innovative products of the insular state „Ilha Formosa“, the beautiful island, without knowing that their daily companions come from there. Sculptural lighting, powerful smartphones and notebooks, or elaborate bicycles illustrate in an aesthetic way that Taiwan is one of the leading countries in design.

Exhibition: Light & Shape

Best of Belgian Design

From 28 October 2014 until 25 January 2015, the Red Dot Design Museum Essen in Germany presents the special exhibition “Light & Shape: Best of Belgian Design”. From ultra-light luggage collection to unusual lamps: the exemplary selection of products from various living environments presents a cross-section of the current Belgian design standard. Touching and testing most of the exhibits is explicitly allowed, since outstanding design quality becomes apparent only in use.

Event: Every product tells a story

Good products do not appear from nowhere. In the beginning, there always is an idea which turns into the final product after a long development process and countless drafts. But where do these ideas come from and how do designers get their motivation? The exhibition “Every Product Tells a Story”, which can be visited from 28 November 2014 until 31 May 2015 in the Hong Kong Design Institute, explores this question in detail.
