Ayca Dundar- The Drop Umbrella

Ayca Dundar is a designer who has created a umbrella that has a pop-up canopy that allows it to be opened up and recovered more effiecently. Haven witnessed the broken umbrellas she saw in london's streets, Dundar was determined to find a better solution to it. She commented saying that "Their complex structure makes them fragile and non-repairable," she said. "They are so rigid that they turn inside out and break during strong winds." The Drop umbrella flexes during strong winds and returns to its original shape afterwards. 

I like how it opens up with ease and the colours that it has mean that it would be customisable and can personalised to the user.
