Habiton by Bürstner: innovative design honoured with gold

Frankfurt. In a festive setting, Rudolf Wikelski (Head of Design and Product Management, Bürstner), Valerie Koch (Habiton Project Manager, Bürstner) and designer Tom Klüber-Voss (Studio Syn) accepted the golden award during the German Design Award Show at the Ambiente trade fair in Frankfurt.

In December 2023, it was announced that Bürstner had won the German Design Award 2024 with its HABITON study with the "Gold" award in the "Excellent Product Design - Passenger Vehicles" category. This award from the German Design Council recognises the innovative design and outstanding quality of the HABITON.

Rudolf Wikelski, Head of Design and Product Management, is delighted: "Winning this prestigious design award is confirmation that our team has created the perfect symbiosis of aesthetics and functionality. Habiton by Bürstner not only combines travelling and suitability for everyday use, but also a lifestyle that is lived through innovative design. This recognition confirms our aspiration to create products that not only impress with their technical sophistication, but also with their visual elegance. I am proud of the entire team and grateful for this prestigious award."

Tom Klüber-Voss, Product Designer at Studiosyn, adds: "It's great to have our work recognised with such a prestigious award. It spurs us all on to continue our courageous search for innovative and sustainable solutions."

The HABITON micro camper study from Bürstner inspires young singles, couples and families with an urban lifestyle. The vehicle is a prime example of the new camping style, which fits seamlessly into the everyday city life of the style-conscious target group and at the same time reflects the strong trend towards flexibility and freedom. The vehicle is based on a Renault Kangoo and has an inflatable roof tent integrated into the vehicle silhouette.
