VIARIS CITY + and VIARIS EXO have been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2024

“This double award, in addition to the constant recognition from our customers, encourages us even more to continue to innovate in the design and manufacture of energy-efficient products. Our aim is to contribute to the well-being of our society by building a more sustainable world”.

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s most prestigious design competitions. These coveted awards have been presented in Germany since 1955 and represent international recognition of outstanding design quality in three disciplines: product design, brand and communication design, and design concept.

In the 2024 edition, two ORBIS products, among the numerous entries from manufacturing companies and design studios from all over the world, have stood out and won over the international Red Dot Award jury in the product design category for their aesthetic innovation and the quality of the materials used in their manufacture.

These are two new smart chargers from the VIARIS range for charging electric vehicles:

  • VIARIS CITY +, the most powerful AC charger for installation in public environments.
  • VIARIS EXO, a scalable, compact and robust 5th generation charger for use in private environments.

Both have been recognised with a Red Dot Award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2024.

In the design of both V.E. chargers, the user experience has been prioritised in combination with an attractive and compact exterior structure. In the case of VIARIS CITY +, its projection has been specially designed for use in public environments, while VIARIS EXO meets all the needs linked to its use in private environments.

The simplicity of its aesthetic line contrasts with the complete and innovative functionalities that come as standard with these two chargers, and which have undoubtedly been recognised by the international professional jury.

VIARIS CITY + has been recognised with the Red Dot Award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2024.

These are the features for which VIARIS CITY + has been awarded this prize:

  • It has two outlets of 22 kW power each with Type 2 plug-in base protected by shutter, which allow fast and efficient charging of two vehicles at the same time with a single charger.
  • It is robust as it is made of very thick aluminium sheet with high heat and humidity resistant paint, and has a high mechanical protection for outdoor installation (IP54 / IK10).
  • It offers high visibility through LED signalling for better location of the recharging point and availability indicator for each connection socket.
  • Provides extra lighting with 107 lux on the ground and 160 lux in sockets.
  • Includes 16-module DIN rail to house electrical protections and the possibility of manufacturing these protections independently for each outlet.

VIARIS EXO has been awarded a Red Dot in the Red Dot Design Award 2024 in the Product Design category.

VIARIS EXO is the first scalable charger on the market, which allows a simple configuration adapted to the needs and pace of life of each user. A charger where an optimal user experience has been the starting point for its design. Therefore, it is perfect for smart charging in single-family homes, neighbourhood communities, workplaces and public car parks. Its design and aesthetics adapt perfectly to any of these installation scenarios, providing a distinctive touch of elegance and modernity.

These are the characteristics for which it has been recognised with a Red Dot in the Red Dot Design Award 2024:

  • Manufactured in an elegant matt white with integrated connector attachment.
  • It is very easy to use and simple to install.
  • It is robust and small in size, offering up to 22 kW of power with IK10 protection rating and IP54 mechanical protection rating.
  • It is the only scalable charger on the market. The charger’s characteristics can be chosen according to the user’s needs, so that the price of the charging station can be adjusted according to the owner’s budget.
