There is no need to re-invent the wheel. We all know that.
But re-invent umbrella?
Why not? Think out of the box. And that’s exactly what the three friends Gerwin, Gerard and Philip did during their student days at the TU Delft University.
Familiar with the rain in the Netherlands and the gale winds that come with it? And how then umbrella starts acting up -going inside out, twisting, breaking, etc. When during a rainy week like that Gerwin Hoogendorn, industrial design engineering student, had to bury three umbrellas, he got so fed up that he decided to design the ultimate umbrella and make it his graduation project.
