Colorful Raining / umbrella

Colorful Raining
Colorful Raining

(an Interesting Surprise) When it rains, it’s always gloomy and low-spirited as people walk down the street in the city. “Colorful Raining” is an umbrella. Its umbrella cloth is made by soaking discoloration ink, which changes the color from white to transparency and reveals the color of the base when it’s wet. Therefore, “Colorful Raining” has two different faces under a sunny and rainy day, and we can find that it becomes colorful gradually in the city. Through the characteristic of the soaking discoloration ink, the existence of rain could be remembered, turning the umbrella into a media for communicating with the environment and people.
