BASE is a roofing solution that produces electricity from solar energy. Gone are the visible square silicon cells, soldering and heavy aluminium frames that are found in traditional solar installations.
The jury says
BASE is an innovative product; it combines respect for a clean environment with a clear aesthetic focus. Most solar installations cannot exactly claim a high aesthetic content. BASE can. With this product, the designers have found a solution that takes the existing aesthetic into consideration. They have created a product that can be integrated in the world in a world that sparks hope that solar cells might become the obvious solution in many more cases. In fact, the design is good that it is near-invisible.
