Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Singapore and the resulting restrictions imposed by the government, Red Dot Design Museum has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
At the Red Dot Design Museum, visitors are given the chance to look at and even touch many of the stunning designs created by some of the best artists and innovators in the world.
These masterpieces are displayed in the museum through a variety of permanent and special exhibitions.
Red Dot Design Museum Singapore – Location & Admission Prices
The Red Dot Design Museum is the physical embodiment of the international Red Dot Design Award. What sits inside the glass building along Singapore’s Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade is a world of design curated from only the best design works which passed through a rigorous adjudication process to receive the coveted Red Dot quality seal.
The museum recommends a plethora of award-winning design objects in the recently added Permanent Collection as well as works blended into the surroundings including ceiling, flooring and lightings. Freshly presented is the newly curated Human-Nature exhibition exploring how humans excel beyond their natural ability, bringing together design works from various disciplines including innovative products, research concepts, communication works and art.
Human-Nature is an exhibition of good design, with parallel questioning of the nature of being human in a world where we achieved enhanced abilities through technology and algorithm, where humans co-exist with robots, machine learning and big data. It begins with an introspective probe on how humans perceive robots. Do they have souls? Where in some parts of the world humans believe inanimate objects are considered to be just as alive as the animate, will robots be accepted as companions, members of society rather than mere tools or threats?
The museum moved in 2017 along the waterfront promenade next to Marina Bay Sands. Hence you can now reach the Red Dot Design Museum from either Bayfront, Downtown or Marina Bay MRT stations – a 4-minute walk from each.
Since the move, the museum is now in a standalone building with a new design exhibition, a museum shop, a design cafe and outdoor bar – now offering more to tourists than ever before!
