‘catch my drip’ is a series of creative, concrete stands for dripping umbrellas. any frequent umbrella user is accustomed to the inescapable challenge of finding a place to store it, especially when it’s dripping wet. ‘catch my drip’ takes up practically no space, at 3.5” high X 6.5” diameter, the piece can be placed basically anywhere.

created by québécois studio non-useless, the holder not only solves an inconvenient problem, but also turns an ordinary object into an original, displayable sculpture. ‘catch my drip’ is hand-made in montreal, quebec with locally sourced materials.
