Design for Africa

Joint Master Project


This project was executed for the company SolarNow, which is based in Uganda. The challenge was to develop a demo-unit advertising the benefits of using solar panels to the residents of Uganda, who usually live in poorly accessible areas. The project included a 4 week stay in Uganda to perform field research and testing.


We developed a rooftop rack that can be extended to the sides for demonstration. The products and unique qualities of SolarNow can be showcased from these side-panels.
