Malawian students how to build small scale wind turbines.
successfully building a 240 mm diameter wind turbine in my back garden here in
Malosa to see if it was possible to build a wind turbine Hugh Piggot style in Malawi,
and after running this windmill for about 4 months to find out if it was worth
the effort, I am ready for the next step:
Malawian students how to built and use small scale wind turbines.
I started teaching at Mikolongwe DAPP Vocational School in Chiradzulu. We plan
to construct a 300 mm diameter Hugh Piggot style wind turbine with 22 students
from DAPP.The course will be given in
the coming two months as a pilot project.After this period hopefully making wind turbineswill be part of daily life at Mikolongwe.
the Bomers' tree inspired furniture series,the Bomers' Nr. 2 is a sofa resembling a leaf just fallen from its tree.
The hand curved steel frame of the sofa follows
the same pattern as the veins of a leaf adapting its natural structure and strength.
The spaces in between are filled with cushions covered in leather but leaving the 'veins' visible. All pieces in the Bomers’ furniture series are handcrafted which makes each piece unique.
