duaL design / Umbrella Stand

duaL design
duaL design

Array is an interesting multi-shaped umbrella stand. With an umbrella as an axle centre, you can put from 2 to 16 umbrellas on it. All you have to do is turn the handle of the centre umbrella and the umbrella holders together with the lotus leaf-shaped water tray at the bottom will be rolled out at the same time. The rain drops on the umbrella can flow down the water tray ladders to the water box on the ground. Array makes the umbrella stand no more a subordinate role, and the doorway of rainy days comes alive.
