http://www.forbeschina.com/news/news.php?id=38456

【导读】早前,有个设计师在接受福布斯中文网采访时表示:如果自己的设计能服务到更多人,而不只是一小部分所谓精英人群,那么他会感觉更加快乐。这大概也是很多设计师的共同的愿望。做产品,做设计,最终都要从人的角度出发,解决实际问题。设计大师最擅长的事情,就是善于发现生活中的实际难题,并用自己的设计去帮人们解决,而如果能为那些挣扎在贫困线的人们提供解决困难的方法和工具,他们肯定也会倍感幸福。下面推荐7个设计师专门为贫困人群做的设计。

设计以树木为基础,并使用它获得水的这样一个自然循环过程。过程主要包括收集树叶和将树叶的水分吸收进入容器,改善非洲由于水资源匮乏而引起的生存危机。

6.littlesun


冰岛艺术家设计师奥拉维尔•埃利亚松已与企业家弗雷德里克合作开发“littlesun”,这是一个小型太阳能供电的灯,只有手掌大小。“littlesun”旨在提倡节约环保,替代现有的电网,甚至不建电网,为非洲农村社区改善居住条件。埃利亚松还计划将他的研究扩展更多的太阳能产品。
