Of Trendhunter’s top 8 umbrellas from May last year most have already been mentioned here. However, these are a few that got away (and are great)…

The Senz aerodynamic umbrella will not invert, and is windproof up to wind force 10. It was invented because of frustration with conventional umbrellas.

The Bumpbrella from RKS design (check out their whole website, you’ll be amazed) stops you from poking other people’s eyes out with your spokes. And it’s gorgeous! I wonder how it folds, if it does at all.

And the My-Day electronic paper umbrella (on to which any picture can be projected) looks unreal, and may well be as I can’t find a site featuring anything but the concept and these exciting photos…

Ken asked me for a boob umbrella yesterday. This thing would be perfect for projecting all manner of smut into the hemisphere above you.

  1. Wow, I NEED that Senz for the windy city, though it’s unattractive, and I WANT that super bubbly Bumpbrella. It looks like a jellyfish.
