Blopy / water recycling Canopy


Water recycling has recently gotten a lot of attention due to water shortage. We suggest a new solution in which we can collect and reclaim rainwater by using an innovative awning.
Unlike traditional awnings, it enhances users’ convenience by using the mechanism of window blinds. Blopy also has a water collection system: an edge of the awning has a water passage which directs rainwater to a user’s water tank. Rainwater collected in this way can be used for gardening or in a bathroom. Thanks to its water collection system, Blopy prevents the buildup of rainwater on awning fabrics, which can help protect indirect users underneath.
