Impressions from the "red dot selection" exhibition


red dot exhibition at the interzum cologne 2007

red dot presented its „red dot selection“ exhibition at the interzum cologne 2007 (9th-12th May): an exclusive selection of the products that have received the red dot design award. The Cologne interzum is the biggest furniture suppliers fair worldwide, and represents a real source of inspiration for the design of the living areas of tomorrow. This therefore represents an ideal opportunity to show the products which were awarded the red dot for their innovation and outstanding design quality.


The red dot selection included over 30 outstanding products from the most varied product groups- ranging from mobile telephones to sport devices, to tools. The products from well-known manufacturers such as Volvo, LG, Sony or Tag Heuer were presented in the exhibition area of the Koelnmesse. The exhibition offered visitors to the Cologne interzum a fantastic opportunity to find out about international innovation in product design.

The red dot selection is affiliated to the „red dot on tour“ range. Last year saw some very successful red dot exhibitions in Eastern Europe and Asia. And this year’s red dot selection in Cologne is going even further afield with an exhibition in Dubai from 27th-29th May.

„For us, the organisers of the red dot design award, the „red dot on tour“ range is a fantastic opportunity to present outstanding design to the international public“, states Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder of the red dot design award, and president of the international design governing body Icsid. A presentation like the red dot design award would not only be for economic reasons, but would also offer the possibility to actively discuss the topic of design. Zec stresses the significance of the exhibitions: „The presentations from „red dot on tour“ support creative potential and also encourage young designers to compete on a national and international level.”

The interzum award which the Koelnmesse has announced in association with red dot for the fourth time was presented at an awards ceremony on 8th May at the Cologne 2007 interzum.
