Typical umbrella stand looks like either a huge container or a box full of holes and can’t help but seem out of place when not holding any umbrellas. By using grooves instead of holes, this umbrella stand maintains a simple, clean appearance. The design’s motif takes inspiration from the joints of a tiled floor. When an umbrella is set into the grooves, the product becomes an umbrella stand. It doesn’t look out of place when not in use, and maintains a neat appearance even when multiple stands are lined up in an entryway. The stand is made using a dense resin known as Polystone. This is then covered with silicone, which offers excellent pliability and durability. Options include a single-umbrella stand and a three-umbrella stand, each available in five colours.meji_sketch meji01_akihiro_yoshida meji02_akihiro_yoshida meji03_akihiro_yoshida meji04_akihiro_yoshida meji05_akihiro_yoshida meji06_akihiro_yoshida meji07_akihiro_yoshida meji08_akihiro_yoshida
