Stay-brella Standing Umbrella by Nendo

View all 9 Photos

Stay-brella needs no umbrella stand. Designed by Nendo for Seibu, the smart accessory balances on its own forked base. The design can stand alone, lean on a wall, or hang any place in the house, making it easy to store and dry out after use. Additionally, the umbrella’s fabric is treated with a special coating that reduces UV rays by 90%. This sun safety feature makes the umbrella ready for rain or shine.
