Umbrella | Large | Sky | MoMA

The Sky Umbrella's exterior gives away nothing more than a classic, black canopy and a simple wooden handle. Once opened, the interior reveals a cheerful blue sky dotted with fluffy, white clouds. Made of sturdy nylon covering the photo-process-printed sky on polyester with a durable wooden shaft and handle with a manual open/close mechanism.

The Sky Umbrella was introduced in 1992 by the MoMA Design Store, which was designed by legendary graphic designer Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson. The umbrella's surprising blue-sky interior echoes the playful career of Kalman, whose work is featured in the Museum's collection.
