Coulomb Technologies today announced that the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum has selected their ChargePoint® Networked Charging Station for electric vehicles (EV) as a part of the upcoming exhibition entitled: “National Design Triennial: Why Design Now?”. The exhibition title asks the question “Why Design Now?” to examine why design thinking is an essential tool for solving some of today’s most urgent problems; what draws creative thinkers, makers and problem solvers to this crucial field of discovery; and why business leaders, policy makers, consumers and citizens should embrace design values. Key developments across design disciplines will be presented through eight themes: energy, mobility, community, materials, prosperity, health, communication and simplicity. Coulomb’s charging station, designed by Silicon Valley-based Interform, is featured in the “Mobility” showcase as an example of design that allows people to travel across town or over a continent while conserving resources. The charging station will be on display from May 14, 2010 through Jan. 9, 2011 in New York City.
