yu ting cheng + yu hsun chung + shaw chen chen: wheel + seal umbrella

‘wheel umbrella’ 93cm

 

 

 

terrible weather can make anyone easily depressed. for this reason, taiwanese designers yu-ting cheng, yu-hsun chung and shaw-chen chen have created ‘wheel umbrella’ for children. here the design features wheels that leave impressions of smiley faces on the floor using puddles left over from the rain.

both ‘wheel’ and ‘seal’ umbrella were a part of the ‘fun taiwan, new design’ exhibition during DMY international design week berlin 2010. the show brought together young taiwanese designers whose work celebrated the culture, festivals and life experiences of their country.

  • This web is very interesting, however, in every post, there is always the negative comment from a frustrated beeing, that is unable to bring a constructive criticism. Who do you think you are “P” to be so rude?. Why dont you show your work and we will evaluate if you do such gret things that you might believe you are above all human beeings. If you do not like what you see, go to another post but respect the work from other people. If you have something interesting to say, go ahead, otherwise, you better shutt up.
