Bouncing Edge / Bouncing Edge

Bouncing Edge
Bouncing Edge

Bouncing Edge is a product designed for umbrella users. It aims to curtail the risk of hurting others accidently by the edge of umbrella––which is sharp and spiky sometimes.

The use of umbrella is a regular practice in rainy days. Unfortunately, stabbed by an umbrella should be a collective memory worldwide, too. However, these accidents sometimes become a serious injury––blinded eye and wrecked face are not a news. Applying the spring form into the design, these margins become flexible and harmless. Besides, the shape of spring itself provides an easy way to attach onto the umbrella––simply extend, place and rotate.
