India - Due to monsoon climate, there is a high fall, which can be perfectly utilized. It is free and there is plenty of it. The number of sunny hours after the rainy season is high. Recycling the power of the sun and rain constitutes the basis of my concept.
To define the shape, I used leaves and shoots of plants. Leaves are extremely important for drainage. I considered the shape of mango leaves favorable as regards functionality, shape, and cultural history. The top of the leaf is appropriate for installing solar cells and for collecting water, while the stalk can divert and recycle this amount of rain. LEDs are operated by rechargeable batteries.
I became one of the 10 finalists of the India Future of Change Design Competition, and I presented the Mango in New Delhi. http://www.indialogues.in/WinnerDesign_AdamMiklosi.htm
