Flexibler / Umbrella


Flexibler's handle is designed to adapt different scenario while retaining its original uses. The rear of Flexibler’s handle is made from flexible metal inside and skid-proof rubber outside, while the holding part stays non-deformable. Flexibler can stand against falling by hooking on vertical grips when taking public transportations. Slight bending makes it steady lean on the wall. As we often overlook our umbrellas, Flexibler provides for an extremely convenient experience for users by clinging the umbrella to their personal belongings, such as a backpack. 90º bending provides more contacted area, allows stable hanging on the table.
