Drying Umbrella / Laundry drying rack

Drying Umbrella
Drying Umbrella

The Drying Umbrella is designed to air-dry clothes in the apartment. In the today's open floorplans the use of space is variable. There is no "away" for such items like clothes drying racks. With its material, geometry and colour the Drying Umbrella adapts to the apartment's furnishing.

In the wardrobe we treat different clothes in different ways; jacket on coat hanger, jeans on shelf. But what about the drying rack? - Could we use a garment-specific system here as well?

The Drying Umbrella is the long overdue update on the clothes drying rack.
