I have finally visited the Red Dot Design Museum, the first contemporary design museum in Singapore and Asia with Ching Ching. This museum is located at 28 Maxwell Road, merely 5 mins walking distance from Tanjong Pagar MRT. Trapped beneath this colonial-era building which was converted into the creative hub known as Red Dot Traffic today, creative souls can be spotted every single step we lingered around this red building.
Swing with the Plants. This swing by Droog along the walkway is a direct result of a thriving fantasy and expresses a particular affinity to nature and poetry. The seat can be filled with soil and plants and when the first budding branches of a vine rise up to the sky, the swing turns into a special phase for relaxation.
The museum was set up in 2005 to exhibit the works of the newly launched Red Dot Award: Design Concept as an extension of the internationally recognized award Red Dot Competition that are housed within the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany that are based in Singapore as the second design museum.

Eva Solo Bird Bath. Danish design by Eva Denmark A/S has shaped the aesthetics of this bird bath before we entered into the Design Museum Shop. It is an adornment to any garden and fills the need for water of domestic bird species, which can use the eye catcher to drink from and bathe in it at the same time.
Under the azure blue sky, we will slow down and appreciate the aesthetics of each product in the Design Museum Shop.
The museum shop sells an array of curated design products from international brands, selected for their unique and cutting-edge designs.
Moorigin, exclusively captured in stainless steel, can be seen here as well! I am particularly in love with their necklaces for the minimalistic appearance with futuristic touch.
Oh my god, they are selling this scratch map as well. I miss mine that is left behind in my Penang home badly. God knows when I'd be able to give it so many colours as theirs. Travel and taking photos truly soothe my mind and feeling good when I happened to see the world with my loved ones.
It is truly an interesting shop to browse through, though slightly pricier but def worth to own a piece of art that garnered recognition with red dot awards if being labelled in red.
Walked further, we are now visiting the Red Dot Design Museum which is linked to the Design Museum Shop.

Glad that I managed to spent a fruitful afternoon in such a eye-catching building with Ching Ching during her weekend trip down to Singapore.
And, here we continued our journey later on to our special encounter [ read about it here ] with inspiring old uncle at Maxwell Food Centre. Ciao!
