Blooming City / Urban Umbrella Rental System

Blooming City
Blooming City

Blooming City is an urban umbrella rental system that is found at main public spaces. The widespread service contributes to the convenience of the city and dots the motion of the citizens’ rapid pace. Consumers can rent an umbrella at the automatic service points and pick out their favorite pattern/color from a huge variety. They can use the umbrella as long as needed and return it to the vending unit when finished. During their rental period, users can replace their current umbrella phase with any other designs to their liking. Umbrella blossoms sprout here and there as the rain washes over the city.
