The red dot design yearbook documents the latest in product developments from all major industries in which design plays a role today. It presents current products from the furniture industry, leisure and sports, architecture and interior design, sanitary and wellness industries, life science and medicine, engineering and crafts, the automobile industry, media and home electronics, as well as from the jewellery and fashion industries. All of the products featured have collected awards in the world-renowned "red dot design award" competition awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. There are prize categories for product design, design agencies, and design concepts. Since 1955, designers and producers can apply for the prizes with the winners being presented in an annual ceremony.
