Internationally renowned design award: Hymer ML-T wins Red Dot Design Award

  • The jury of the Red Dot Design Award selected the popular Hymer ML-T motorhome to receive one of the coveted awards at the Red Dot Gala on 19 June.
  • The Hymer ML-T impressed the jury in the “Product Design” category with its modern style collections and digital connectivity for smart living on the road.

As a driver of innovation within the industry, Hymer is constantly striving to set new standards where motorhoming is concerned. To this end, the motorhome expert has recently made a number of updates to the design of its popular ML-T model range. As a result, the model has now been awarded the Red Dot Award 2024 in the “Product Design” category. The award ceremony was held on 19 June at the Red Dot Gala in the Aalto-Theater, Essen.

 “Outstanding vehicle design is a key component of our brand philosophy/strategy. One of Hymer’s greatest ambitions is to continue creating a buzz in this area. Receiving a Red Dot Award in recognition of our efforts encourages us to continue pursuing our aim and shows us that the result of our hard work is being appreciated in the way that we had envisioned,” says Christian Bauer, President of Hymer GmbH & Co. KG.

“With the new edition of the ML-T, we have translated a digitally connected travel experience into a design that perfectly reflects this level of modern and effortless comfort. In my opinion, curved edges, fleece and leather components, a tiled kitchen wall as well as matt black fittings and a harmonious lighting concept are among the many small details that make the motorhome so stylish,” says Dominik Hepe, Head of Product Management Motorhomes at Hymer GmbH & Co. KG.

Stylish and connected: the award-winning design of the Hymer ML-T

With its outstanding design, functionality and pioneering connectivity, the Hymer ML-T is setting new standards for premium motorhomes. The updated interior offers two new premium style collections, “Velvet Ash” and “Native Bamboo”. Premium materials and clever features create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The updated lighting concept with adjustable light temperature as well as new reading lights and pendant lamps also give the interior an exclusive and cosy feel. In conjunction with the Hymer Connect app, various vehicle components, such as lighting and heating, can be controlled intuitively and centrally – even by inexperienced campers. Overall, the vehicle design of the new Hymer ML-T ensures a highly stylish and modern travel experience.
