An intelligent umbrella design.


Mondella is a intelligent umbrella design that bring you a total new walking experience in the raining day. It doesn’t just protect you from the rain and sun, it creates your own little world. You can play your music out loud under the canopy, that only you can hear, with our Anti-Vibration Technology.

Design Details

Umbrella & AI holder


Ecosystem: base on the “Mondella” from last assignment.

  1. An AI holder that can download and store music, can show you weather info.

  2. Umbrella have VR technology, can show the time or environment that you set.

  3. Umbrella can create a environment that can resist the sound from outside, which can make you enjoy the music from umbrella or can enjoy your voice.

  4. Umbrella have an small storage space and a shoulder girdle, for easier to carry.


Things I carry (school day): keys, wallet, a pen, phone, glasses, water bottle, sketchbook, earphone.

Things I carry (regular day): keys, credit card, phone.


Key things: 1. I don't like to bring bag or backpack, so that I won’t bring the things that are not about “must”, such as water bottle and umbrella, even thought I will get thirsty and get wet.

            2. I will keep all the stuff in my pocket (phone, card, money, key…).

            3. I always cannot find a place to store my bag in my home, so that I just put it on the ground, so does my umbrella which it stays on the top of my fridge.

            4. I’m afraid to hurt my hand when I open my umbrella (a keenness metal plate on the bracing stick of umbrella).


My own:

            Personalize: color: dark blue

                                  Material: waterproof and thick material, won’t get rusted.

                                  Represent me: a logo on the surface and the holder, dark blue surface color

            Customize: AI: 1. Remind me to bring umbrella or not

                                      2.can save the music I like

                                     3. can dry the umbrella, keep the place clean.

                                Umbrella: 1. Can read the music on the street and find the music for me.

                                                2. can keep my hands free.

                                                3. can store things (free my pocket)

                                    4. good water resistance (won’t keep the water drop on the surface).
