It evolved over the years to become the Red Dot Design Museum. Every year, design experts from all over the world convene to decide works from product design, design concept and communication design to be awarded. The experts make up the jury for the international Red Dot Awards for Product Design, Communication Design and Design Concept. All entries are tested, discussed and assessed for their innovative design quality based on different criteria depending on their tasks and purposes. Only the best pass through rigorous adjudication process to receive the coveted Red Dot quality seal - and thus their deserved place in the Red Dot Design Museum.
In 2017, the Singapore Red Dot Design Museum moved to its present location along the Marina Bay after a 12 year period since it was first established in 2005 along Maxwell Road.
