Mihrab 2018 / Smart Device

Mihrab 2018
Mihrab 2018

How wonderful would it be to have a portal in your room to your favorite place on earth? For centuries, Mihrabs were designed to give the impression of an arched doorway or a passage to Mecca, the most sacred city in Islam. It is very important for Muslims to do their prayers while facing to Qibla, which is fixed as the direction of the Kaaba in the Hejazi city of Mecca.

Mihrab 2018 is a smart device based on original Mihrab's concepts that its first task is to show live footages of Kaaba in order to help Muslims not just facing to its direction while praying, but also having a real time view of it and feel the experience of being there.
