The design of 'Lean On Me' took inspiration from people’s behavior. People tend to lean their wet umbrellas toward wall when they come indoor from rainy outdoor.

Have you ever leaned your umbrella against the wall before?
 
 
We often have trouble to keep the rain-soaked umbrella after using it. 'Leanable Umbrella' is easy to be kept against any kinds of walls, providing more convenience for the users in the process of keeping.
Background
 
Entering indoors with rain-soaked umbrella, we have to seek a proper place to keep it for its water. But in the public facilities, it is hard to find a place to keep an umbrella, so people put the it against the wall or find somewhere to hang it.
'Umbrella leaning against the wall with ease' is cut to have optimum angle to lean against the wall with stable shape when the handle and the top of umbrella are contacted to the wall. Non-slip silicon material is used for each end touching the wall and it is a design point of this umbrella.

우산을 사용하는 사람들을 관찰하면서 사용 할 때의 불편함을 해결하고자 손잡이으 형태를 리디자인 한 작품 입니다. 벽에 기대어지기 쉽도록 손잡이 부분과 꼭지를 컷팅하였고, 다양한 컬러의 논슬립 패드를 덧대어 심미적인 포인트를 주면서 형태에서부터 사용자의 행동을 유도하는 어포던스 개념을 접목하였습니다.
