Red Dot Design Award, founded in Germany in 1954, looks back at a tradition spanning more than 60 years. Every year, Red Dot receives more than 17,000 submissions from 70 countries. It is one of the most influential design awards in the world. In 1955, the exhibition “Ständige Schau formschöner Industrieerzeugnisse” opened in Essen, which was the initial form of Red Dot Design Museum. The world's first Red Dot Design Museum was located in the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen, Germany. The exhibition space was designed and remodeled by the Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Lord Norman Forster (a well-renowned architectural designer known for Apple's headquarters building) on the basis of the abandoned boiler house. In 2005, the second Red Dot Design Museum was established in Singapore. In 2017, the Singapore Red Dot Design Museum moved to its present location along the Marina Bay after a 12-year period since it was first established in 2005 along Maxwell Road. It is also the physical embodiment of Red Dot Awards.
