Eye catching and in keeping

The client’s brief required an umbrella that was at once eye catching and in keeping with the very chic and modern brand attached to it.

One of the most interesting features about it is the double canopy. This effectively allowed for a Pantone matched exterior canopy to be combined with a striking geometric print on the inside.

Maximum creativity within manufacturing constraints

The overall design was developed by a leading London design agency on behalf of the property development company.

Wurlin worked closely with designers to allow for maximum creativity within manufacturing constraints.

In addition to the stunning geometric design, which really packs a punch though it blends only three colours, we incorporated a soft silicon umbrella grip and automatic opening functionality.
