SF MoMA Sky Umbrella

$44.00

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. 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.
