Laika Ecovip motorhome wins Red Dot design award

A Laika Ecovip motorhome has won the prestigious “Red Dot” award 2021 in the “Product design – Motorhomes and Caravans” category.

The Red Dot Award stated: “the international panel only awards this prestigious quality title to products with exceptional design”. This year’s competition was particularly tough: applications were received from over 60 countries around the world.

Commenting on the award for the Laika Ecovip motorhome, Red Dot’s CEO said: “With such a high number of participants it says it all about the excellent quality of your product”.

The Laika Ecovip Space Concept won over the panel of judges thanks to its design of space based on the idea of living comfort, with the aim of offering travellers a motorhome built around them. Every area of the Ecovip motorhome has been designed to ensure a unique travel experience, starting with the driver’s cab, where the 2.17 m long panoramic windscreen offers a full view as well as providing light to the entire vehicle. In addition, the reduced distance between the steering wheel and the windscreen (-17 cm) ensures a true 360° view and an unforgettable driving experience.

In the living area, the large right-hand side window provides even more natural light as standard. The spacious dinette with customizable ergonomic seating and a large side sofa can accommodate up to five people seated. In addition, the integration between the driver’s cab and the living area is perfect thanks to the continuous line of wall units and covering with a uniform design.

The sleeping area has been studied in detail to offer maximum optimization of stowage space, with the space-saving foldaway bed step and the handy pull-out wardrobe. In addition, the multi-functional toilet door allows the sleeping area to be separated from the rest of the vehicle, providing a high level of privacy.

The new Ecovip motorhome, launched last June, are a total of nine models offering: twin beds, island or transverse double bed, L-shaped or face to face dinette (in DS models). Today these new models with their refined design receive an important international award that rewards the work carried out by the Laika team, proving to be capable of great results even during a difficult year like 2020.

Laika was founded 57 years years ago in 1964 by Giovanbattista Moscardini, who named it after the first dog in space. It is now part of the Erwin Hymer Group and uses state-of-the-art construction techniques to ensure its vehicles are built to last and designed for all climates.
