Alstom, global leader in smart and sustainable solutions, in collaboration with DSB, national Danish railway operator, is proud to announce that the IC5 Coradia Stream train has received the prestigious "Red Dot Award" 2024 for "design excellence."

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions, celebrating excellence in international design, product design, communication design, and a variety of design concepts. In April 2021, Alstom and DSB signed a historic landmark framework agreement, worth €2.6 billion for the supply of 100 Coradia Stream trains, as well as 15 years of full-service maintenance.

A winning collaboration

The IC5 train is the result of a close and innovative partnership between Alstom and DSB. The collaboration aimed to create a train that reflects the values and meets the needs of the Danish people, embodying both integrity and authenticity.

Jörg Nikutta, Managing Director of Alstom Denmark, says about receiving the award:"We are very proud that the IC5 trains have received the Red Dot Award 2024 for 'product design'. Our goal was to design the train of the future, expressing both integrity and authenticity. This award is the result of our collaboration with DSB, where we have managed to create a timeless design that is inviting for passengers, and it is gratifying to be confirmed that we have succeeded in doing just that."

The interior of the new IC5 Coradia Stream trains reflects Alstom's latest design principles incorporating natural materials like genuine wood and raw metal. Alstom, in partnership with DSB, has crafted a timeless design, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for passengers. Furthermore, the interior lighting is carefully designed to assist passengers in navigation while enhancing the overall experience with different brightness levels and harmonious colour combinations.

"We are incredibly proud to receive this recognition for our upcoming IC5 trains, even before they are ready to roll out on the tracks. From the beginning, we have focused on creating a unique and pleasant customer experience with a timeless expression. The award is a testament to DSB's focus and tradition of combining functionality with aesthetics. We look forward to our customers enjoying this," says Jürgen Müller, Director of Strategy and Train Equipment.
