Six of the Best cultural highlights of 2011 @ Icon Magazine

Massoud Hassani’s Mine Kafon, a wind-powered land mine clearance device – which has garnered huge excitement since its Milan Furniture Fair debut – is without doubt this year’s stand-out piece. Made of bamboo sticks exploding out of a plastic centre with an integrated GPS device, it rolls over the land, deactivating mines and keeping check of clean paths. The designer hopes the product, which is cheap and easy to assemble, will help small communities in his native Afghanistan claim back land that is out of bounds at present.
