Let it rain!

It has been really nice weather for quite a while now but make no mistake; I live in a country where it actually rains a lot. Like most people here I hate rain! It seems some Dutch designers got inspired by that sentiment.
First Gerwin Hoogendoorn came up with the  SENZ, a truly revolutionary umbrella. Now, Frederik Molenschot & Susanne Happle introduced their Solid Poetry tiles in Milan, the design only shows itself when it rains. Then, the water exposes leaves and flowers in the material of the tile, changing the environment in a surprising way and leaving a wonderful pavement that literally grows under your feet.
