Morella Adds a Cup Holder to Your Umbrella

by Hazel Chua

Picture this: you’re on your way to work with your briefcase in one hand and  a cup of coffee on the other. Suddenly, the skies go dark and it starts raining cats and dogs. You reach for your umbrella and then you realize you have to get rid of something because you aren’t exactly born with three hands. Sadly, it’s the coffee that ultimately has to go…

Solving this problem are Andrew Tan, Mike Elam, Jordan Schlipf and their Morella.

It’s essentially a cup holder that attaches to the handle of your umbrella. It’s got a gimbal mechanism to ensure that your cups always stay level and don’t spill. That way, you can carry your drink (and even an extra one!) while holding your umbrella with one hand and whatever else you need to carry in the other.

The cool part about it is that you can use it with umbrellas that are in use (as in the picture) or closed, so you can just stick your umbrella into the ground and transform it into a drink stand.

Morella is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of £10 (~$16 USD) will get you both a single cup and a double cup Morella.

Remember: With Morella, you’ll be able to do more-ella with your umbrella! (Was it that bad? Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)

    You can never have enough cupholders, I want one just to see how stable it is in real life. I rarely carry both cup and umbrella, but I guess this is aimed at citydwellers.
