Concept

“There are many kinds of umbrella stands, but the archetype is designed for traditional long umbrellas with a hooked handle. Our intention was to create a threedimensional, graphic piece that worked perfectly for both long and compact umbrellas. The triangular shape was chosen because it fits well in any position in a room, including corners, and tessellates beautifully. A simple series of holes enables furled or unfurled umbrellas of any size to be popped easily. Poppins feels both serious and playful; the glossy plastic emphasizes its waterproof qualities, while the form reminds us of a game – like the triangle used in billiards or snooker. By happy coincidence it is also the perfect shape for wine bottles!”
