Concept:
It is an umbrella upcycling design project. In this project, a lot of rib-damaged umbrellas with intact waterproofing fabric were collected. We preserved the unique hexagonal shape of umbrellas and turned it into a mat. It allows users to create their private, comfortable and relaxed space for gathering. Its waterproof function is good for outdoor use and with drinks. The fabric size is perfectly matched for a mat without cutting and reconstruction of material. It minimizes human resource and waste of material. In the process of separate the ribs and fabric, it also enhances the recycling of both plastic and metal.
