Are you ready for the rain? Here are some great designs for umbrellas for whatever your needs.
Senz design has an aerodynamic aspect to keep the wind from destroying the umbrella.
The Sprout Umbrella byMatthew Swinton is designed to completely fold away into the handle.
Another clever idea is the Eco Brolly This hand device can re-use and adapt objects such as newspaper, card, and plastic bag and turn it into an umbrella.
In the totally opposite direction is this sultry piece for Jean Paul Gualtier, “The Corset Umbrella”
Or his lace umbrella for an even more feminine touch….
I am loving this next umbrella by designer Sang-Kyun Park, at first look it is not anything special, but at night it comes alive…
As water pours over the surface, potential energy from raindrops slamming onto the conductive membrane called PDVF transforms into electrical energy powering embedded LEDs sending your umbrella ablaze with light. The heavier the rain, the brighter the light to help you see your way.
And finally, for an all-over coverage is this large clear umbrella. No idea who created it though…do you?
