Opening of the Red Dot Design Museum Taipei soon


Design can be found everywhere – but Red Dot makes it visible in detail: In numerous exhibitions all over the world, the indicator for high-class design quality allows the public to experience the latest trends and innovative achievements. In addition to the successful Red Dot Design Museums in Singapore and Essen/Germany, Red Dot is now proud to open its new museum in Taiwan`s vibrant capital city Taipei.

For Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot, choosing Taipei as the location was a logical step: “Back in 1993, 20 years before the opening of the new Red Dot Design Museum, our productive discussions commenced with the predecessor organisation of the Taiwan Design Center. These led to our first design exhibition in Taipei. I remember it fondly, as we were able to inspire Taiwan’s economy and Taiwanese society at the time with quality from Germany and succeeded in building a friendly partnership that has grown continuously over the years.”

The creative potential of designers and companies from Taiwan is also reflected in the Red Dot Design Award, one of the internationally most renowned competitions. Taiwan features regularly among the top five of around 70 countries that take part in it each year. This has put Taiwan well in lead in Asia for a long time, and nowadays it is also one of the global leaders in design.

The opening ceremony of the Red Dot Design Museum Taipei, in which many VIP guests will join, takes place on 30 August 2013. The museum is located in the Songshan Tobacco Factory, a historical building which is steeped in tradition. The interior of the house was designed by the renowned Taiwanese interior designer Cheng Chung Yao.
