Dresden, October 28, 2015 – Second award in a matter of days. eZelleron GmbH recognized with a special-mention award for its kraftwerk® product in the category: Excellent Product Design – Lifestyle and Fashion.
Dresden-based eZelleron GmbH has been honored with a special mention at the 2016 German Design Award for its first product, kraftwerk®. The jury was won over by the completely novel function of the fuel-cell-operated charging device coupled with a simple yet innovative design.
“Besides innovative technology, design certainly also plays an important role in product developments. Users don’t just want functionality, they want an experience. kraftwerk® strikes this balance between true innovation and clean design,” asserted eZelleron founder and CEO, Dr. Sascha Kühn. This is the second distinction kraftwerk® has received within a few days. On 10/15/2015, the researchers won the GERMAN ACCELERATOR, a program initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
