Umbrella stand / Umbrella stand

Umbrella stand
Umbrella stand

It’s an innovated umbrella stand, and the design concept is to combine the “umbrella stand” with “tile” and “pot”. By recycling raindrops from the umbrella, the “Umbrella stand of tiles” is embedded in the floor, and put in front of the gate of public spaces.
There has a vine pattern of fillister on the tiles of umbrella stand; it provides spaces for plant to growth. After using this umbrella during the raining day, you will only need to put it lean against the wall. Then the tip of umbrella stick into the fillister of tiles in umbrella stand, the water on the umbrella will inflow to the fillister, and provide water to the plant.
