The new generation of Type 2 AC charging cables from Phoenix Contact has received the 2019 German Design Award in the category “Special Mention”.

The new generation of Type 2 AC charging cables from Phoenix Contact has received the 2019 German Design Award in the category “Special Mention”. During the process to design the new product family in collaboration with professional designer Stephan Gahlow from Hamburg, a conscious effort was made to focus on achieving an ergonomic and attractive design along with using robust and top-quality materials. The objective here was to meet the tough requirements of the automotive industry.

The AC charging cable that was nominated proved convincing to the German Design Award jury: “The ergonomic design ensures the grip has a comfortable feel, which facilitates handling. A functionally well thought-out design that is also esthetically impressive in its modern contouring and two-color optics.”That was the rationale of the jury, which was composed of design experts from business, academia, and science, as well as the design industry.

The “Special Mention” prize is awarded for efforts whose design shows particularly well-executed aspects or solutions. It is an award that honors the commitment of companies and designers.
