prairie light / Lighting concept

prairie light

The Maasai are nomads in East Africa. Till now, they still maintain their primitive way of life and live on grazing cattle and sheep. There is no water or electricity, which adversely affects their daily life and childrens’ education. Our design utilizes the activities of livestock during grazing, charging the electric lights and lighting them at night.
