Hiroshi Kajimoto’s new UnBrella design promises to improve your rain protection by … turning it upside down – Also check these cool umbrellas we featured earlier: the 8-in Pocket Umbrella, the 65 MPH (100kmh) Wind Resistant Senz Umbrella and the Hands-Free Umbrella.
Well, not really upside down, but close … The innovative design moves the umbrella’s structure from the inside of the canopy to the outside giving users some cool advantages: when folded closed, the umbrella’s wet side will be on it’s inside allowing user to manipulate it without getting wet; the UnBRELLA’s design allows it to stand-up by itself making storage and drying a child’s game; ease of opening when in small spaces (the canopy extends from top to bottom); improved resistance to wind.
The UnBrella will be available in February 2014. You can pre-order one via the Buy Now link below (some of the page’s text is in Japanese).
