Three Design Objects


Folded Umbrella Opened Unbrella Umbrella's Special Button

This is another object that exists in different sizes and can be used to protect a person from rain or sunlight. Regarding this umbrella, it has a small size which makes it easier to carry inside a bag or backpack. To help with transportation, there is also a handle with a curved shape, made of resistant plastic material, with easy ergonomics for the hand or to be hung.

It has two overlapping metal sticks, which by sliding through them with a runner, allows to increase (or decrease) the height of the umbrella and expand the size of the flap through the ribs. These are connected with a small tip, protecting the person from the rain. When in use, the combination of the handle, flap and strong sticks allows the umbrella to be held vertically or against the direction in which the rain is being projected.

The flap has a concave shape and a quick drying material, which also allows the drops to drain faster. It also has a small top spring which locks the top part together and to close it, you only have to push it in and automatically the umbrella folds in and lowers the height. There is a strip attached to the flap, which when closed, surrounds it so it becomes more cohesive.

In addition to the general components of an umbrella, the added value of the design of this particular one, is the button located on the tip cup of the handle. For a more practical use, when the button is pressed, the umbrella opens within seconds.

Again, we can see an object that propels an amount on functions with a call to action, where its built goes accordingly to the intuitive thought and action of the human being.
