10 Unconventional Umbrella Designs

For the sake of all the Gays and female population, I hope the day comes when it rains HOT Hunky MEN. This is one deluge that my single friends wouldn’t mind; and if the lord floods the streets with Adonis kinda guys, then I’m joining the party too! Wild fantasies aside, my point of focus here is actually UMBRELLAS! Yes, those sorry basic so-called shields can be spectacular as well! Don’t believe me? Take a look at the 10 compilations here; they vary from structural indulgences to conceptual capabilities.

10) SENZ Umbrella

LT reviewed the SENZ Umbrella and still raves about its aerodynamic shape that keeps rain off his back. It’s designed to withstand up to 70 mph winds and won’t flip inside-out, no matter how strong the winds are.

9) The Inside Out Umbrella by Seung Hee Son

Dripping umbrellas belong to Mac Funamizu’s Pendurella Stand, but in case you want the sort that converts into a bag and holds all the water in, then look no further. Here’s the Inside Out Umbrella for you. All the wet drippy stuff stays inside.

8 ) DIY Electric Umbrella

A little bit of ingenuity and some steady hands on your part is required to fashion this awesome Electric Umbrella. Get wet, wild and lit-up in the RAIN!

7) Bluetooth Umbrella by Mikhail Stawsky

The urban jungle has turned us into animals hungry for gadgets in every aspect of our lives. A stroll in the rain means you can’t use your mobile phone, so heck; let’s add Bluetooth to our umbrellas! That’s what the fuss in this Umbrella is all about. Besides syncing with your mobile phone, it doubles up as radio so you can totally go “singing in the rain.”

6) LightDrops by Sang-Kyun Park

Adding a different perspective to the umbrella is this LightDrops contraption. It harnesses potential energy from raindrops that slam onto the conductive membrane called PDVF, which is then transformed into electrical energy. This converted electric energy in turn powers the embedded LEDs, “sending your umbrella ablaze with light.”

5 ) Sprout Umbrella by Matthew Swinton

The entire umbrella literally sprouts out from the handle. The canopy and the hardware are enclosed inside it. Maneuver the knob to slide open the umbrella and turn it to lock things in place.

4) BUMBOO by Rizki Tarisa & Maximilian Aji Wijoyoseno

This one’s an interesting piece coz it proclaims to be an umbrella, pillow, walking stick and a garbage pick-stick. Fold the shaft of the stick into a neat grid and the umbrella transforms into a soft pillow (the shaft is covered with a soft foam fabric). Stretching out the shaft turns into a walking stick. A point at the tip, on the floor-end, makes it a garbage pick-stick, and of course the canopy makes it an umbrella!

3) Self-Defence Umbrella by Yoel Mazur

I LOVE this idea! It SCREAMS Just This: Don’t mess with me mister, else I’ll turn this “half-covering” umbrella into a Shirasaya (sword) or a spiked club and fight you off!

2) Music in the Rain by SDESIGNUNIT

Karaoke in the rain? No worries, the Music in the Rain Umbrella features a player that will dish out the background score and you can sing along! The controls to the player can be manipulated with the handle and the speaker is located in the canopy, and thankfully on the inside!

1) Eco-Brolly Umbrella by Shiu Yuk Yuen

Amazing as a concept but impractical as a design, the Eco-Brolly is what we can call a summer project rather than a Monsoon aid. As we pointed out earlier, the main premise for this umbrella was to reuse discarded newspapers as the canopy for your umbrella skeleton, therefore making it a green design.

This umbrella can re-use and adapt objects such as newspaper, card, and plastic bag and turn it into an umbrella. It can re-use whatever the consumer thinks of reusing. It is a supporting devise when it rains, all the user has to do is unscrew the top lid, poke the lid onto the middle of the newspaper, quick screw to secure it & open it out like an umbrella!

When it rains, it pours they say; I hope you enjoyed this compilation and flood it with a deluge of HITS!

    this top 10 should be in ascending rather than descending. #10 is clearly the best piece of design.

  • linda says:

    No.1 is the best design here. It’s funny

  • j says:

    Great post. The top one seems like it would be good for backpacks, too — which is often a problem of mine.

    Don’t forget, gay and female aren’t mutually exclusive! I imagine there would be some lesbians who would be less than thrilled about men raining down on them.


  • Eric Foor says:

    Good post, I like the lighted umbrellas though, so you don’t get run over.

    They need to have an umbrella with A/V hookups and you could attach an MP3 to it. The underside of the umbrella would be an OLED screen and you could watch movies. Now THAT would be an awesome design!

    Good article. I definitely love this site. Continue the good

  • Hello everyone, it’s my first pay a visit at this website, and article is in fact fruitful designed for me, keep
    up posting these types of articles.

  • homepage says:

    Humana People to People is a global network of aid agencies from more than 40 countries on five continents.
    Forged during the upheaval engendered by the system of Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s, Humana recognized that
    the end of colonialism and Apartheid in 1994 was not the end of suffering.
    While they had assisted in winning the fight for equality in South Africa, there were communities in need across the globe.
    The obvious continuation of their program to help people
    in South Africa was to extend this aid to the rest of the world.
    Thus, Humana People to People was born from the struggle for basic human rights for all people.

    To call Humana People to People an aid agency is to oversimplify its core
    guiding principles and its aim when it enters communities.
    Rather than simply offering aid in the way that one might cover a wound with a bandage, Humana seeks to transform whole communities, giving them tools that will enable them to solve their current problems and guard against issues that might arise in the future.

    This is a “top down” approach that maintains the only way to aid both people and communities
    is to fundamentally change the core elements that keep them from succeedi\
