Free-stand / umbrella stand


This product provides a room for people to stand their umbrallas in the subway in the rainy days. When we take a lot of things into the subway in the rainy day we have to hold all the stuffs beside the umbrella and we have to prevent the dripping water onto other people’s feet, which often makes us bruised and battered. If there’s Free-stand, you can free a hand to hold the pipe, this ensures your safety. There are drainage holes in the below plane, the dripping water will be collected into the metro water system instead of dripping everywhere. In addition, Free-stand is also a low handrail for children which they can hold easily.
