umSHARElla / public product design


umSHARElla is a umbrella for sharing. When someone could not leave the MRT or the buildings on a raining day, you could share a half of your umbrella to someone. This movement is not only sharing the umbrella, also sharing your love.
After using umSHARElla, the person doesn't have to give it back to the owner. You could easily share the umbrella with anyone that is holding the half of the umSHARElla. It will become a cycle of sharing. Also symbolizes the sustainable inheritance.
