‘blunt umbrella’

 

 

the ‘blunt umbrella‘ aims to solve the all-to-common conundrum of being poked in the face with someone’s umbrella. the new umbrella design rounds off the pointed corners, doing away with the sharp and pointy metal ends. this design feature prevents dangerous injuries and gives the umbrella unique silhouette. the design also employs a radial tensioning system and double struts to keep the structure of the umbrella in even the gustiest of winds. the product comes in three different sizes for individuals, couples or golfing. all the different models come in black, blue and silver. while the design prevents its users from gouging passersby, it can’t protect them from non blunt umbrella users.
