Bürstner's Habiton: A Golden Crown for Innovative Design

A radiant development team, an illustrious gala evening, and a golden award - Bürstner experienced a truly magical moment at the German Design Award Show in Frankfurt.
Rudolf Wikelski (Head of Design and Product Management, Bürstner), Valerie Koch (Project Management Habiton, Bürstner), and the talented designer Tom Klüber-Voss (Studio Syn) had the honor of receiving the coveted Golden Award during the Ambiente trade fair, and the event was a true highlight.

Already in December 2023, Bürstner proudly announced that its captivating study, HABITON, had won the prestigious German Design Award 2024 in the "Excellent Product Design - Passenger Vehicles" category, securing the highest accolade, "Gold." This recognition by the German Design Council not only acknowledges the innovative design but also the outstanding quality of HABITON.

Valerie Koch, beaming with joy, expressed enthusiasm for the award: "I am proud that our study has received this unique prize. The dedication and efforts of the development team have truly paid off. We continue to invest our energy in the design of motorhomes and caravans that meet the highest standards of design, comfort, and functionality. Currently, we are in the process of developing the Habiton for series production."

Rudolf Wikelski, Head of Design and Product Management, was thrilled: "Receiving this prestigious design award is confirmation of the perfect symbiosis of aesthetics and functionality that our team has created. Habiton by Bürstner not only combines travel and everyday practicality but also embodies a lifestyle lived through innovative design. This recognition underscores our commitment to creating products that impress not only with technical sophistication but also with visual elegance. I am proud of the entire team and grateful for this prestigious award."

Tom Klüber-Voss, product designer at Studio Syn, added: "Confirmation of our work through such a prestigious award is fantastic. It inspires all of us to continue boldly seeking innovative and sustainable solutions."

Bürstner's Micro Camper study, HABITON, captivates young singles, couples, and families with an urban lifestyle. The vehicle is a prime example of the new campstyle, seamlessly integrating into the daily lives of style-conscious urban dwellers while reflecting the strong trend towards flexibility and freedom. The vehicle is based on a Renault Kangoo and features an inflatable roof tent integrated into the vehicle silhouette.
