Collector
In the rainy days, used umbrellas usually cause the interior floor very wet. When the umbrella is closed, the whole drops flow along the fabric to the bottom tip with their own gravity. Those constitute slim stream and quickly wet the ground. So we made this design. That is a small component used for collecting the rainy drops. That small part is interjected by the bottom tip. Because of umbrella’s gradual change shape and the small component’s middle-hollow structure, the collector can store all the flowing down water.
