Umbrella Dryer / Umbrella Dryer

Umbrella Dryer
Umbrella Dryer

The rainy day, When we enter the building, we can see Umbrella storage. When I saw that, I always feel that it`s dissipation of environmental and resources. It is good to provide convenience for movement. But, When we are out of building, plastic bag can`t be reused. So, just become a trash. Because, It`s too weak, and reusability is low. So, The plastic bag induce enviromental pollution.
I got an idea from toilet`s hand dryer. Hand dryer dried water of hand by strong wind. So, I designed “Umbrella dryer”. Wind blow from both side it will dry umbrella. It`s possible to remove water by the bottom side hole. This water can reuse for plants.
