description

ChoosEV posted a contest about designing a charging station for electric vehicles in Denmark. This is what I came up with, in collaboration with Rasmus Brøndsted.
This project is inspired by the symbol for "on/off", a circle with a vertical line through the top. This symbol is universally recognizable and always related to power and electricity. Besides that, this charger only communicates via light making usage very easy. We made a wall-hung version and a floorstanding one.
Unfortunately we only got a third prize, but you can't win 'em all!

Modelled in SolidWorks and rendered in Photoworks
