Red Dot Design Museum, Singapore Overview

The Red Dot Design Museum, located located along Waterfront Promenade at Marina Bay is an innovative design gallery of gadgets and art. The boutique museum is a branch of the Red Dot Design Museum in Germany and showcases over 200 contemporary designs - all of which are winners of the International Red Dot Design Award, which is considered to be one of the most prestigious design competitions of the world.

The small gallery of the Red Dot Design Museum showcases posters, computers, household appliances and basically the innovational gizmos and gadgets that aim to make our life easier - like a pregnancy test for the blind, a tap designed for people with one arm, and elevated bathtubs. A popular exhibit at Red Dot Design Museum is the Herbow which is a small tray intended to grow vegetables on the windowsill. The MAAD (Market of Artists and Designers) Programme is held here every first or second Friday of the month. In addition to this, the quirky museum has a design shop housing some of the best design objects from around the world, including Singapore itself. The Red Dot Design museum also has a design cafe and bar where the entire menu is curated to go along with the theme of the rest of the museum.

The Red Dot Design Museum is located in a building made almost entirely of glass. It was designed collectively by Cox Architects from Australia d Architects 61 from Singapore. The building showcases exemplary geometry and plays with a lot of modern and contemporary architectural elements like steel elements and size differences. It is an amazing fascination for people interested in architecture to see such a different style of design come to life on such a large scale.
