Leanable Umbrella / Umbrella

Leanable Umbrella
Leanable Umbrella


The design of Lean-able Umbrella took inspiration from people’s behavior. People tend to lean their wet umbrellas toward wall when they come indoor from rainy outdoor.
In general, it is inconvenient to keep wet umbrella in indoor.
Lean-able Umbrella suggests easy keeping of wet umbrella through new design and new material.
The handle and the end of the Lean-able Umbrella are cut with the angle, by which the umbrella would lean to the wall. The end points are added of non-slip silicon pad. Umbrellas lean to the wall more stably. The end points would be the design points when the umbrella is unfolded in rain.
