The Paddo finds its inspiration in the fairy tales from dwarfs,elves and the mystical world. Stories from our childhood. As a child everyting seems so big and beatiful, so we tried to get someting magical and beautiful back in to the real world. The world of the grown-ups. This resulted in a huge Mushroom.

Exploring the wonders of the mind by thinking really hard about the subject at hand. Come up with the best and most beautiful parasol ever. Bring your mind into a stream of consciousness and forget the world around you Using the www to find out what exists already. My memory, Google and Pinterest Sywawa These are first done on paper as sketches, then on computer as 3D models, then a prototypes in the workshop of Sywawa During prototyping, we discovered how the down fabric interacted beautifully by closing the parasol and reopening there were wrinkles mimicking the real world, unexpected but nice
to join 2 different types of fabrics so there are no wrinkles on the outside of the fabric.
