Free guided tour on the World Industrial Design Day: A look behind the scenes of the Red Dot Design Museum

On 2 July 2013 it starts again: In its four-week exhibition “Design on Stage“, the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, presents what is state-of-the-art in international product design. Prior to this, 15 visitors run the chance to participate in a free and exclusive guided tour. In the course of the World Industrial Design Day on 29 June, starting at 3 p.m., the house offers exciting insights: for all those who can’t wait to discover the best products of the year, and for everybody who always wanted to take a look behind the scenes of a museum.

The guests of the one hour lasting tour will be the first to see the award-winning designs which were successful in the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2013”. They have been given the coveted Red Dot seal by 37 international design experts after a several days lasting decision making process. From the newly interpreted club chair to a very shapely waste separation system to a sophisticated 3D camera: the international innovations display the complete range of contemporary product culture.

Traditionally, the “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” takes an important place in the special exhibition. With “Communication+” the Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo will give exciting insights into their exemplary design work, which has been internationally successful.

All those who want to participate in the exclusive guided tour, are asked for previous registration by phone on +49 (0)201-301040 or via e-mail to museum(at)red-dot.de. As the group size allows for a maximum of 15 participants, the allocation of places will be handled on a “first come, first served” basis.
