Lean On Me

Someone has rightly said that design need not be complicated, if you peel the layers of fluff, you will be left with a clear perception of good design. The ‘Lean-able Umbrella’ follows this thought and is a very intuitive and simple design. The handle end has been redesigned with end points that feature a non-slip silicon pad. People tend to lean their umbrellas against the wall, and this design addresses that situation effectively.

Lean-able Umbrella is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.

Designers: Cheol Woong Seo and Jae Hee Park

    This is one of those now why didn’t I think of that moments! I don’t know how many times I’ve put my umbrella up against a wall only to have it slide down and fall over.

  • Good work – sometimes the simple the better – were alway finding great stuff on this blog – least if it rains your ok 🙂

    Interesting idea. But by implementing this wall leaning feature through this form, the designers has taken away the ‘hook’ feature, which can come in handy in certain and more situations.
