Designs that give back, see the blue sky here - http://bit.ly/1mHNzXA See the collapsible Sky Umbrella here - http://bit.ly/1fIm7mV Every purchase supports The Museum of Modern Art. In 1992 the MoMA Design Store introduced the Sky Umbrella by legendary graphic designer Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson. The umbrella's exterior gives away nothing more than a plain, black canopy and a simple wooden handle. Once opened, the interior reveals a cheerful blue sky dotted with fluffy, white clouds. The umbrella's surprising blue-sky interior echoes the playful career of Kalman, whose work is featured in the Museum's collection. Kalman once again used the visual motif of the Sky Umbrella in a 1995 issue of Colors, an award-winning global magazine where Kalman served as the founding editor-in-chief. 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.
