Alphavan wins “Red Dot Award: Best of the Best” in the Product Design category

Alphavan, the German campervan manufacturer, has received a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is awarded for groundbreaking design and is the highest award in the competition. The Red Dot Award is now one of the world’s largest and the most renowned design competitions and receives over 18,000 entries each year from design professionals, companies and organisations from over 60 countries.

“We are extremely happy to have won this award and that our design has also convinced the professional jurors. The award is a motivational boost in order to continue with fabulous designs and innovative solutions within our Alphavan”, says Stefan Krause, co-founder of Alphavan and responsible for Alphavan design.

Alphavan’s aim has been to establish a new and highly innovative premium campervan brand. Using lightweight design and maeterials, the Alphavan stays well below 3.5 tons overall weight and uses the longest Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with the super high roof and many optional configurations.

The novel material “Vunder Tech“ allows for a progressive design language in the interior: rounded edges and single cast surfaces are combined with flush-mount integration of the caravan systems and special coating that ensure robustness and longevity. The innovative layout of the Alphavan with the FlexPort in the rear appeals both to individuals with large and bulky equipment such as e-bikes or motorcycles and to families that wish to create an additional sleeping room for up to two – as well as business that would like to offer a flexible alternative to their employees on business travel. The energy concept with a Li-Ion battery and a solar panel ensures independence from natural gas and therefore more freedom and flexibility while being on the road.

The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the award breaks down into three disciplines: the Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design
and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. Each competition is organised once every year.
