The New York Museum of Modern Art (better known as MoMA) is showcasing some of Japan’s finest talent, beginning with Ryo Masaki. Though Masaki designed this beautiful hands-free umbrella back in 2005, it’s only recently become available exclusively from MoMA.
Part of the ongoing Destination: Japan product offering, the umbrella features various heart patterns on the umbrella itself. Instead of a conventional umbrella handle, there’s a bendable, shapeable rubber piece that’s designed to wrap around the carrier’s shoulder. At $50, it’s a little on the expensive side but depending on your situation and where you live, the benefits may outweigh the cost.
