The phenomenon of rain offers us an essential resource for our everyday lives: water. While this basic need is being restricted through commodification, we forgot the simplicity of this source. Mvula is a ephemeral structure that harvests rainwater and fog in an off-grid, decentralized context. This project was born out of a collaboration with people in rural South Africa who have difficulties in accessing portable water. The free source to water echoed in an Open Source principle, making the design used widely accessible : shared information using the basic materials of ropes, textiles and sticks, all which can be adapted in regards to one's context.
