Last chance to submit for the Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2018
The jury of the Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2018 will come together in Singapore soon to select the best design innovations, prototypes and ready to launch products for the year. Only concepts with the highest design standards that convince the Red Dot jury are awarded with the sought-after Red Dot. The results set off a series of important events to celebrate the best design concepts of 2018.
A gala of international design
Held in the prominent Marina Bay district and near the Red Dot Design Museum Singapore, the award ceremony is an important design celebration. The event brings together winning designers, design teams and prominent industry players from design and media from all over the world. The designers’ runway as a focal point at the ceremony honours and celebrates the biggest design achievements of the year. This year, the gala will be held on 28 September 2018. Over the course of the award ceremony, the year’s very best design concept will be awarded with the highest honouring, the Red Dot: Luminary. Subsequent to the event, a special winners’ exhibition will be presented in the Red Dot Design Museum Singapore for four weeks.
Red Dot Design Museum Singapore showcases award winning design
The Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore was established in 2005 along Maxwell Road. In 2017, the museum relocated to one of the most prominent districts in Singapore, its present location along the Marina Bay. The museum is the physical portrayal of the Red Dot Design Award, presenting the latest international trends. With over 80,000 annual visitors, the Red Dot Design Museum represents an important design focal point in Singapore. Here, they can experience the world of good design on several floors of exhibitions, filled with award winning design concepts, prototypes and multimedia presentations.
A standard for consistent and modern design capability
Since 2011, the Red Dot Institute has been publishing the Red Dot Design Ranking for design concepts. With the release of the Red Dot Award: Design Concept results, four honourary lists are published, highlighting the top 15 organisations in their respective categories. The Red Dot Design Ranking for design concepts tracks and measures the success of an organisation in producing exciting new design concepts over a period of time. It is a reflection of real sustainable design innovation capability of an organisation. Companies and institutions are recognised for their continued investment in design.
