The charging station should not only minimize the charging time, but also create a meaningful break for the driver. The station takes the form of a series of structural ‘trees’, with ‘crowns’ that filter light and shade. The modular approach means that the design is scalable, and that one ‘tree’ can easily be multiplied to become a ‘forest’ depending on the required capacity. Continue reading COBE
