Operating concurrently from two outposts in Oakland, California and Salt Lake City, Utah, design studio Enlisted has amassed an impressive portfolio of products and branding running the gamut from toothbrushes, wall storage systems, to home security systems. Their latest efforts take form of Cove, a wall mounted EV charging system for EverCharge inspired by contemporary wall sconces designed to glow with pleasing ambiance.
Cove is designed to expand EverCharge’s existing charging station options beyond the commercial grade EVO2 designed for apartments, condos, and workplaces into the category of EV charging solutions aimed at single family owners who’ve switched to electric vehicles. One glance at the EVO2’s pragmatic industrial design, and it’s obvious the EverCharge’s decision to recruit Enlisted’s aid was a prudent one.
“We played around in this stage with architectural lighting design to give the product a premium and homey feel. As we continued to look at the product from the home owners POV we separated the charging-handle mount from the main body of the product, to give the users freedom to configure the mounting style to fit their personal style and preferences.”
Enlisted’s work went beyond designing the charger unit itself, extending into the brand strategy, identity, and online design surrounding the Cove.
Designed to be compatible with all electrical vehicles, the 48A output circular charger can be connected indoors (within a garage) or outdoors using a NEMA 14-50 outlet or hardwired for a cleaner look. Owners will also be able to keep tabs on whether their EV is fully charged from the convenience of a compatible app via WiFi and Bluetooth.
EverCharge is planning to launch Cove this summer (2023), with price and availability TBD. To sign up for release date updates and how to purchase, scroll down to the bottom here to learn more.
