Mac Funamizu Ensures the Shacklie Will Not Be Stolen

One of Trend Hunter’s favorite concept designers, Mac Funamizu, is back with a handy design that makes a whole lot of sense.

Many offices and buildings do not allow bringing in wet umbrellas, and leaving them on the outside rack is just an invitation for someone to steal them.

Mr. Funamizu solves this problem with his concept design, the Shacklie. It’s an umbrella with a handle that could be transformed into cuffs. Once you lock it, your umbrella will be a prisoner till you come back.
