Anyone who has ever been caught in a sudden harsh downpour knows that it sucks to not have an umbrella. You probably also know that newspapers can help to at least keep most of it off your head.
This green concept is from designer Shiu Yuk Yuen and uses disgarded newspapers as your umbrella canopy. Just unscrew the top piece, secure the paper and screw the lid back on. The user could use almost any material they want, limited only by their inventiveness. It’s a very clever idea. There is one big flaw in the design however. If I can’t find a newspaper or some other thing to screw in place, I’m drenched.
