Flexibler is an Umbrella That Stands

Standing Umbrella

There are many reasons why most people prefer folding, automatic umbrellas. For one, they’re more compact and expand with a simple push of a button. They’re less of a pain to carry around and you don’t have to deal with one problem that people with regular umbrellas have: trying to make it stand when it’s prompted against a wall or table.

Solving this first-world problem are Liang-Hock Poh and Ming-Hung Lin, who came up with the Flexibler. It’s basically an umbrella with a flexible, adjustable handle that you can bend and twist this way and that to stabilize it when you want to make it stand.

When you’re ready to use it again, the handle can be bent back to its original position. The Flexibler is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.
