ellaella / Umbrella

ellaella
ellaella

The idea came from observation of frequent occurrence of umbrella dropping in restaurants and bookstores. This umbrella is self-supported by a small stand which is self-supported by a small stand which is magnetically attached to the handle or the end of the umbrella. The stand is designed in the form of a clear water droplet, which creates the illusion of the umbrella standing on a small pond of water.
