ICFF Highlight #7: Flying Robert


This lamp, Flying Robert, by Fabbian, is made for my husband me! (I basically met G because he carried an umbrella!)

SENZ umbrella


The aerodynamic SENZ umbrella claims to resists storms up to wind force 10! It looks intruigingly odd! Umbrella-man, is this for you?

the big umbrella


‘The Big Umbrella’ is a big umbrella designed to shield a large group of people from the rain. A typical big umbrella can shield approximately 4 tightly squeezed people from the rain. ‘The Big Umbrella’ is twice as big (240 x 160 cm) as the biggest men’s umbrella found on the consumer market and can in turn potentially shield 16 people from the rain.

This definitely put a smile on my face. You have to know, I have a thing about umbrellas ever since I met my husband in an elevator – thanks to his umbrella. It was a rainy evening and I asked him if he was walking to the A/C subway stop by any chance. He did, and he walked me there under his (what I thought was a big) umbrella. Seeing this giant umbrella puts his into perspective though… hmm.. I wonder if he would have ended up with a harem instead just me as his wife would he have had that ‘big umbrella’. Ha!

UfocapI went to see the current exhibit at MoMA called SAFE Design Takes On Risk where I discovered the: Ufocap Umbrella (What a hysterical name!)! It’s designed by Jae Bong Yang, Made out of PVC Plastic, manufactured by Koryo Industrial Co. Korea

I wish they would offer one for grown ups (No offense Umbrellaman). Seriously, I would wear it.

Here’s the Folding Instructions. Sorry, but it looks like a giant condom…

Umbrella-man, I think this sky umbrella, designed by Tibor Kalman would suit you well.
