Umbrellas are designed to avoid rain from getting onto your person, but the Instant Dry Compact Umbrella looks to take things a step further. Treated with a special water-repellant coating, the umbrella is capable of making water droplets fall off the surface with one shake.
The prevalence of wet umbrellas causing floors to become wet and hazardous is annoying, as is having to stuff a soaking umbrella into your bag. The Instant Dry Compact Umbrella solves this problem with a design that's truly "wet-free."
The umbrella blocks out 99% of UV rays to allow it to be used as a parasol as well. The umbrella is available for purchase from the MoMa store and comes in two color options including red and blue.
