November Rain is a project of Andrea Vecera for a grave self-sufficient, which recovers water and is also used to generate electricity to power an LED.
Water is life; retrieve, store and reuse is a noble gesture that every human being should make their own. Many people will continue to do good "post-mortem" and who has never worried he will from beyond. November Rain is a summary of concepts on the value of water; the sacredness celebrated dall'impluvium, a cross between a cup and a basin for holy water; light a light making "alive" the soul of the benefactor through the water itself, and the rite dell'abbeverare a living being. Grave of self that ennobles the soul, consecrates the role of water and makes hope alive.
Technology and materials.
The impluvium and base are obtained by rotational molding and thermoforming Cristaplant, a composite material formed by a high percentage of natural minerals (ATH detivate from bauxite) and a low percentage of polyester and acrylic polymers of high purity; thus it is an inert, non-toxic and resistant. The main stand is made of Carrara marble. The power supply of the LED occurs through a mechanism which in contact with water generates electricity at low voltage, as the batteries of AA new generation. The rainwater remains within a reservoir with siphon which avoids evaporation and the proliferation of mosquitoes. Distribution is through a tap with a button, you can deliver the water in the tank without any mechanism, as the water falls by gravity, also there is a slight slope so that water runs down to the last drop.
Suggestions and design ethics in the care of the details.
November Rain was born, for its formal aspect, the concept of "Altar", iconography sought to link the sacredness of a natural element like water from heaven. The impluvium has the function of collecting rain water can and most connservarla inside. Inspired by a glass to exalt the sacredness of the content. The luminary is a drop, icon of rain and water, with water-powered LED. The rain drops falling in a body of water, generate concentric circles, the drawing from it can perform functions very precise.
