Designer He Yue observed that some people close their umbrellas and use it as a walking stick after it stops raining. He added a small detail on the stick that made the ‘Footprint’ umbrella instantly loveable. It’s not a revolutionary redesign but just taking into account human behavior and emotion to make you connect with daily objects some more. The rubber umbrella tip in the form of paws leaves a trail of pet footprints when used as a walking stick. The designer sees this as a poetic expression of “companionship” between items and people through design.
