Massoud Hassani | Developing An Idea Into A Project
“I use my background to inspire my projects.”
Massoud Hassani is an Afghan-born product designer interested in applying design thinking to solving complex social issues. Having adopted a new lifestyle and cultural habits, his creative talents had already emerged as a child in Kabul, where he would make all kinds of toys, sculptures and paintings.
As a child in Afghanistan, where there are literally millions of landmines and the Mine Sweeper project is Hassani’s solution to this problem. The project has won several prices and is nominated for the Design of the Year 2012 by the Design Museum in London.
