Conceptual designer Mikhail Belyaev once again creates something that will hopefully be a staple in future architecture and design with the Lampbrella.
Rather than dreading the lack of umbrella when storm clouds amass, the Lampbrella makes any nearby streetlight a local shelter against the falling rain. The concept design involves water detection and motion sensing capabilities which trigger the opening and closing of the umbrella. The design would be a great addition to any futuristic society, as would Mikhail's other fantastic concepts.
The world according to Belyaev would be a place where design exudes sophistication, functionality and social interaction. What could make for a beautiful "how we met story" than coming together and sharing the space under a Lampbrella while waiting for the storm to pass. Romance and futurism can go hand in hand.
