Last week, I flew over to Essen, Germany to attend the Red Dot awards ceremony and gala. The evening kicked off at the Aalto Theater in downtown Essen. After walking the red carpet, I headed inside for a celebratory glass of champagne before the start of the ceremony. Red Dot founder and president, Peter Zec, hosted the evening and guided the audience through beautiful musical and dance performances, thoughtful discussions on design and, of course, a celebration of the product design winners.
The second half of the night was held at Zollverein, a former coal mine just outside of Essen. The impressive complex is the perfect home for the Red Dot Museum - a stark industrial contrast to the sleek, modern products shown within the brick walls. Upon arriving at Zollverein, we were ushered to the winner's dinner, an intimate culinary experience celebrating the designers. Spearheaded by renowned German chef, Frank Rosin, the winners were treated to a phenomenal four course meal. After dinner, it was time to party.
I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.
