Shared umbrella / Shared umbrella

Shared umbrella

The design has advantages of sharing, human feelings, humanization, adjustability and so on. It has solved the problem that we want to help the people without umbrellas on rainy days. But the umbrella we used now is too small, fixed size and does not adjust. While it rains heavily, the old umbrella cannot protect us from getting wet. What’s more, the weather is very cold in the winter, and the wet ground caused by the old umbrella would bring trouble and insecurity to cleaning aunt. We design the new umbrella by adjusting the size of umbrella surface and skeleton through buttons sliding buttons to realize its functions of shrinking freely.
