The Mine Kafon

Massoud Hassani's Mine Kafon reminded me of Theo Jensen's wind powered pieces but with a life saving element.  They are not only interesting to look at, but they hold a very important purpose.  I love how his design came directly from his experience of playing in the deserts as a child- with using what they had around. It is also super admirable that he came back to his homeland and decided to change things with that which he learned away from home- such a beautiful idea- and invention.
