Eccentric-circle Umbrella / Umbrella

Eccentric-circle Umbrella
Eccentric-circle Umbrella

When we hold an umbrella in the rain, our backpacks, handbags or arms and shoulders often get wet. Umbrella nowadays covers not very completely what’s under it. The way one holds it makes the space it covers unreasonable – we normally make use of only one quarter of the space under the umbrella.

The Eccentric Umbrella, having the fulcrum not in the centre, being more flexible in space distributing, helps us make better use of the space under it, meets more of our needs, and functions better then ever.
