Sky Umbrella

Designer Tibor Kalman's umbrella opens to reveal a brilliant blue sky underneath a wonderful waterproof arc.

$55.00

Rain + Shine

Even as storm clouds loom overhead, beneath this iconic umbrella by Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson, clear skies are always on your side. As a founder of M&Co and editor of Colors magazine, Kalman gained major attention throughout his career for "pushing the envelope" on design and typography conventions with bold visual language that was confrontational, surprising, and distinguished by the designer's keen sense of humor.

Like Kalman's other pieces found in museums around the world, his Sky Umbrella deftly captures the wit and irony that characterizes the designer's revered oeuvre. A plain, black canopy and a simple wooden handle unfurl to reveal a cheerful blue sky scattered with fluffy, white clouds, bringing delight on even the rainiest of days.

Sturdy nylon covers the photo-process-printed polyester sky. Durable wooden shaft and handle with a manual open-close mechanism. Made in China.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sky Umbrella:

    It doesn't rain that much here, but we have 'monsoon' seasons and I'm very excited to use this umbrella for it. I adore that it looks like an average black umbrella but on the inside is a picture of a beautiful sky. Nice handle too. If I could change one thing, I would make it easier to open and close- but perhaps that will become easier with time.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Sky Umbrella:

        This is such a cool umbrella. I bought it because I am moving to New Orleans in a few months, where rain and thunderstorms are a daily fact of life. I wanted something distinctive, and this is definitely it. It's sturdy, and classic. Love it.

        Could not ask for more. Delivery was prompt, packaging was more than sufficient.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Sky Umbrella:

          Not only the perfect weight and size for an amble in the rain but a lovely way to pick up your spirits when the sky is grey. This umbrella is well made with a lovely wooden handle, and sturdy enough to withstand a few good gusts. the black on the outside/double lining effect has the added bonus when using to ward off the sun's rays. And looking up at that blue sky and puffy clouds is bound to make even the most harried commuter smile!

            I had expected the sky to be screen printed on thr underside.So, the sky isn't as bright on a rainy day as I would like.The handle is a fine sturdy size and the umbrella is quite adequate for one person.

              I love this umbrella. I got it a year ago as a Christmas gift and it was my favorite gift. I recently lost the umbrella and I was devastated! No other umbrella would do so I had to order it and pay for it myself this time.

                  This umbrella is so fun. Folded up, it's your standard-issue black umbrella - albeit a wonderfully sturdy one with a stained wood cane handle and metal tip. Open, it chases away the grey Seattle skies with ease. I find myself looking forward to the next rain!
