Wake up and smell the EV charger of the future

Three students studying at the University of Creative Arts (UCA) have been named the winners of a competition to reimagine the EV charger of the future.

The winning design, which was announced on the opening day of London Design Week, is named ‘Java’ and highlights the impact of the coffee industry in the UK. Its fluted fascia panel is created from spent coffee grounds in a bio-resin composite to represent the 500,000 tons of coffee waste which ends up in landfill every year.

All 10 of the shortlisted designs are now on display at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, including the winning entry, designed by Chananchida Promma, Thomas Ford and Maxel Hutama.

David Martell, CEO of Andersen EV, the company behind the competition, said: “This competition has allowed us to inspire the next generation of designers and explore future concepts in home charging.

“Great design and advanced technology can be fostered in unison, and it has been very rewarding to see how the students have explored the interplay of form and function.

“Working with UCA has been a great opportunity to share our passion for electrification and design with the students and staff, while homing in on some of the environmental and societal challenges that we all face.”

Andersen EV is a recommended installer for Porsche GB and is Jaguar Land Rover’s preferred charge point supplier in the UK.
