Why Don’t You Come Stay Under My Lampbrella, Ella, Ella?

Remember that oldies song Bus Stop by The Hollies? It basically tells the story of two strangers who meet at the bus stop, share an umbrella, and end up getting together because of their bus stop meetings. I couldn’t help but remember that song when I saw the Lampbrella.

LampbrellaNow I’m not saying this is a concept design to encourage people to meet potential partners in the streets, but it’s definitely a fun one considering the smart way it integrates a lamp with a sensor-activated umbrella.

Once rain drops begin to fall, the canopy automatically opens, providing shelter and relief from the rain to passers-by who might have left their own umbrellas at home.


The Lampbrella is a concept design by Mikhail Belyaev.
