The award is given every two years, at the Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, Europe’s flagship fair for caravans and motorhomes. The competition is organised by fair operator Messe Düsseldorf GmbH in cooperation with the renowned red dot GmbH & Co. KG to reward innovative product designs for camping and caravanning. This year’s edition saw a total of 92 applications from nine countries.
The submitted ideas were evaluated by a team of industry experts in close consultation with renowned design authorities including Prof. Danny Venlet (owner of Venlet Interior Architecture), Max Ottenwälder (Managing Director of Ottenwälder und Ottenwälder, a design office), and Prof. Dr. Peter Zec (red dot initiator and Senator of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design). The experts discussed every single product in great detail live and on site.
The Dometic Group walked away with two prizes in the category “caravaning design award: innovations for new mobility”. Both the new ceramic cassette toilet CT4000 and the rooflight Midi Heki Style convinced the jurors with their outstanding product design. Andrew Moseley, Dometic Group Design Director, sees the award as a confirmation of each team’s performances. “I am very pleased we received two such great prizes. It is a recognition of our everyday work,” Andrew Moseley points out. Both products were on show during Caravan Salon at the exhibition stand of Dometic Group as well as on specially a dedicated area of Messe Düsseldorf.
Midi Heki Style, with built-in dimensions of 400 x 700 mm, is an ideal rooflight for motorhomes with elongated roof layouts.
The CT 4000 ceramic cassette toilet is a facelift version of the well established CT 3000 series, which is now replaced with the new generation. The engineers from Siegen, Germany, have added a total of 18 improved details.
