Japanese designer flips umbrella to make a more effective design (video)

When you look at this umbrella design, you will ask yourself “Why didn’t I think about it?” Check out the UnBRELLA (not a spelling mistake). At one glance, it looks like an umbrella flipped over.


In my opinion, it may look effective to withstand wind and the usual rain. However, I think it will take a longer time to dry (since the wet part is facing inside) and the UnBRELLA must be made with good material since they are exposed to the elements.

Check out the video.

This self-standing UnBRELLA is ready for pre-order at 9,450 yen. Not so cheap for an umbrella. Delivery should be in February 2014.
