UnBRELLA: The Upside-down, Inside-out Umbrella

by Hazel Chua

Have you tried sharing an umbrella with someone who’s shorter than you? It’s fine if you’re the one holding it, but if the other person is holding it, then you might feel a couple of bumps as the frame scrapes against your head, because your companion might be holding it a wee bit low.

Clearly, that’s a first-world problem. But it’s one that Hiroshi Kajimoto has solved with the UnBRELLA. When it’s closed, the UnBRELLA appears upside-down. When it’s open, you’ll see that the frame is placed on the outside instead, which makes it inside-out as well.

With these design modifications, the user gets more head room and the potential for tangled hair is eliminated.

The UnBRELLA is available for pre-order online. It will be released in mid-February 2014.
