Habitusliving Shop: Blunt Umbrellas

A new, lighter and brighter range of umbrellas for Autumn/Winter 2011 from the crew at Blunt.

We featured the guys from Blunt Umbrellas last year (and even gave a few umbrellas away!), but they’ve just released an updated range in time for Autumn/Winter 2011.

This amazing design removes the danger to your fellow pedestrians by creating ‘rounded points’. The internal structure of the umbrella also makes it super strong in winds and almost impossible to turn inside out (we’ve all been there!).

The updated ‘Lite’ range – weighing in at just 456 grams – includes new colours (yellow, hot red and Aqua blue) as well as a wrist/hanging strap and, while stocks last, a free carry strap for those times when the sun is shining.






“The response from the public for the product has been overwhelmingly positive. Comments like ‘why hasn’t someone come up with this before’ and ‘what took so long’ really validate for me that I have achieved what I set out to do,” says Brebner, designer of the Blunt.

We have to agree that it’s the simplicity of the design concept and yet the brilliance of the engineering which makes this one of our favourites.
