|The Red Dot Museum on Maxwell Road is painted in bright red.|
One of the newest museums that I went to was the Red Dot Museum on Maxwell Road. It's located near the Chinatown district and near the famous Maxwell hawker center. You won't miss it because the building is painted all red. This museum opened in 2006 and it is the first contemporary design museum in Asia. The exhibit is a collection of designs from the winners of the International Red Dot Design Award. Exhibits here are mainly product and communication designs from around 55 countries.
The main exhibition hall is in the ground floor area and it's just interesting to see these creative and out-of-box designs. Check out these Hipstamatic pictures that I took, just to give you an idea.
|These are installed on the floor and gave the illusion of a deep hole when |
actually there are just mirrors inside the cubes. It also changes colors.
|These are literally wall-to-wall installation of plastic containers, |
placed interestingly to create a colorful design on the wall.

My apologies for not taking note of the designer's of these wonderful designs.But there is so much to learn from and be inspired from the exhibits. If I'm not mistaken, they are currently preparing for a new exhibit which will be opened this August. If you'll be visiting Singapore soon, check out their website here to know more about their opening hours and for more information.
