Innovative, qualitative and inspiring design.
The Henry van de Velde Awards showcases projects, products and services that demonstrate the added value of design in its most varied aspects. The jury selected 17 winners from 198 submissions in seven categories.
Smappee wants to transform the charging station from a necessity to an added-value feature in every car park. ‘Smappee EV Base is equipped with our unique energy management technology and strikes the perfect balance between design and intelligence. It charges cars simply and safely, while intelligently managing the building’s energy flows. The design is made as such that the integrated LED light provides the status of the charging session as well as additional lighting in the parking lot. What’s more, companies can have these stations fully reflect their brand. They are a real showpiece in every car park.’ says Stefan Grosjean, CEO and founder of Smappee.
Tailored to businesses.
The Smappee EV Base won the Business Innovation award as the product is mainly aimed at companies. There is the need to charge several electric cars of employees and visitors at the same time. Each charging station has two charging points with fixed charging cables for greater ease of use. With the integrated LED lighting, there’s no need to install additional lighting and the power cables this entails. This also increases safety in the car park. The sleek design, the simple housing made of high-quality ecological materials, and the quick installation all result in a cost price for the EV Base that is up to 30% under that of similar charging stations.
