the blunt umbrella...

The Blunt Umbrella by New Zealand designer Greig Brebner cleverly deals with the pointy (& potentially dangerous) end of the wet weather.

Cities and rain don’t go well together – something that Brebner found out when on working sabbatical in London. “The first day the rain arrived in London, it became obvious as to how prolific umbrellas are in a big city,” he explains. “I was quite astounded to find out how dangerous a mass of umbrellas can become with their sharp points at eye level.”

“For people to be so easily convinced that this design is a massive improvement on the old proves that this product has got huge potential.”
