Melker Ulvön wins the German Design Award in Excellent Product Design

The German Design Award is the official and most prestigious design award for Germany presented by the German Ministry for Economics and Technology, and honoured by the international design industry & community.

WINNER: Excellent Product Design

Melker Ulvön takes the concept of sustainability, design & innovation, function & safety, and value-for-money even further and introduces a serious expedition kayak with a playful character.

From a design perspective, the kayak is highly inspired by surfski characteristics and surfboard design. Melker Ulvön benefits from the FSC Bamboo Composite characteristics in combination with honey comb structure. This makes the kayak lighter, stiffer, more durable and less harmful to the environment – as bamboo is a fast growing grass, completely renewable.
