Special exhibition: "Design on stage - winners red dot award: product design 2012/2013"

From well-designed exterior luminaires, to a helicopter, functional clothing and drawing pencils: In its special exhibition “Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2012/2013”, the red dot design museum presents contemporary product design in the midst of inspiring industrial architecture from 3 till 29 July 2012.

Every exhibit has been evaluated by international design experts during a several days lasting process, before being awarded the sought-after red dot seal. They won over the jury panel of the “red dot award: product design 2012” with qualities such as ecological sustainability, outstanding functionality or their symbolic and emotional content. The international innovations come from 49 countries and will be exhibited on two floors for the first time. Besides large-scale installations, visitors can experience award-winning design, arranged by categories, while a selection of iconic exhibits is placed on “islands” along the north-south axis of the museum.

Traditionally, the red dot: design team of the year takes a special place: it is presented in the White Hall of the house. The red dot design museum illustrates in a vivid way, where and how we meet outstanding design in every condition of life and at any time.
