The Electric Hotel

Is an air stream trailer transformed into a charging station for mobile phones. The trailer is powered by the wind and the sun and can work without any support of the electric grid. It can store up to 400 mobile devices. Around the trailer, you find a variety of different toys to charge your phone with muscle power. like a charging bike or a water tower with a turbine. the concept behind the electric hotel is to provide electricity for the electric nomad on music festivals and events. But also to create awareness about the importance of electricity. the project won the highest german design award (Designpreis der Bundesrepublik) for communication design and the climate kic innovation award for best startup.
