An international top-class panel of 91 experts has awarded Smappee with the iF Design Award 2021 for the design of the Smappee EV Base, Smappee’s intelligent EV charging stations for businesses. The iF Design award is one of the most important design competitions in the world and a great international recognition for Smappee’s new and strategic product line.
Picked out of over 10,000 submissions.
The iF Design Award is presented annually by the world’s oldest independent design institution, iF International Forum Design GmbH in Hannover. The number of participants in the first round brought a record number of entries: The jurors selected the best 50 percent of all entries from around 10,000 submissions from 52 countries for the iF Final Jury. It is out of those submissions that Smappee proved to be among the best in class.
Responding to real needs.
“It is a great honor to receive the iF Design award as it is one of the most prominent and well-respected awards in the industry”, says Stefan Grosjean, CEO and founder of Smappee.
The Smappee EV Base was especially praised for its functional design and the use of qualitative and durable materials. The EV Base isn’t just a charging station, the integrated LED is also lighting for the parking lot. It is an all-in-one solution offering EV charging and home energy management that allows for safe charging and optimised self-sufficiency with solar power. The jury also liked the differentiating character and unique functionalities of the Smappee charging station compared to other EV charging stations. The EV Base is the only charging station that offers smart charging with local dynamic load balancing, autonomous overload protection and insights and control over energy usage and costs.
