BLOOM/stand umbrella / umbrella

BLOOM/stand umbrella

An umbrella is a daily necessity, but it is uncomfortable to lean somewhere.
Our idea is about ‘standing umbrella’ instead of putting it on the umbrella stand. Design motive comes from blooming flower. If you fold an umbrella, tripod will be opened like a bud which becomes a flower after the rain. ‘The BLOOM’ is easy to stand alone with the tripod’s stable triangle structure.
