Honourable Mention
The GE WattStation is an electric vehicle-charging station that is designed for public and private spaces. The cylindrical aluminium body flares upwards into an angled user interface with a touchscreen that withstands even extreme weather conditions. The charging process takes four to eight hours, and the charging cable is self-retracting for enhanced convenience. Users can communicate wirelessly via a digital platform in order to locate, operate or monitor the device remotely.
