An umbrella which springs from the handle like a flower from a stalk. Andy Wana won the GOLD 2005 Australian Design Award-Dyson Student Award for this thing, but I’m having trouble reaching his webpage. I really hope he’s still making them because I want one/several/them all.

As the last thing I can find about them was in ’05 I’m not going to hold my breath. However, this very similar idea appeared on Yanko in 2007 designed by Matthew Swinton. Not quite as pretty perhaps, but just as surprising if you saw someone get one out.
