Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (RED DOT)

Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (RED DOT)

Our Vision:

In the past 15 years, under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen has developed into an international communication and qualification centre for design-orientated industrial enterprises, design studios, communication and multimedia agencies.

The Essen-based institution regards design as an integral part of economic and technological promotion, and as an essential component in the striving for innovation and the encouragement of competition.

 

What we do:

The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen is a registered association based in Essen, Germany. A brief glance at the articles of association reveals what it sets out to do:

"The purpose of the association is the promotion of knowledge, research and education concerning design, the promotion of education in the handling of design and the promotion of the art and culture of design. This purpose is to be pursued by actions including but not limited to exhibitions in Germany and abroad, presentations and consulting services on topics and questions relevant to design, and the organisation of international academic congresses on the theory and history of design."
