Product development automotive: pop-up roof for campers

Novanex was asked to redesign the pop-up roof of the new Mercedes „Marco Polo“. The required features as e.g. water column, breathability, privacy, ventilation, fire protection, folding behaviour and durability call for a high quality performance product, with an appearance of equal quality. The solution of Novanex was exhibited at Caravansalon 2014 in Düsseldorf (D).
