With locations in Germany and Singapore, the Red Dot Design Museum showcases award winning product design and concept designs meant to streamline society. Many of the award competitors were students currently in school. From the Red Dot Design SG website:
“The red dot award: design concept answers these questions by inviting the most talented designers and most progressive companies from all over the world to submit their best design ideas to rigorous adjudication process.
Each year, an independent panel of jury gather at the red dot design museum in Singapore to meticulously scrutinize each entry to the competition. Through a series of examination and debate, exceptional design concepts are identified and awarded with the international coveted “red dot”.
This seal, a mark of excellence, sends a strong and indisputable signal that demands attention to both the design concept and designer.”
Everything from interactive LED bathtubs, disposable (recycled) emergency housing, health products to repurposed plastic bottles as building materials are present in the museum. A good look at the near future of product design and well-designed gadgetry.
