Search Umbrella on Yanko Design and you will see many concepts that try to make it blend into the background, when on the go. Flexibler is one of the most refined solutions that I have come across. The umbrella handle bends and can be used in different positions, it retains its original form when needed.
Flexibler’s handle is made from flexible metal on the inside and skid-proof rubber outside.
Flexibler is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.
