Senz Umbrellas By Mina Perhonen

The last time we covered Senz umbrellas on Selectism was back in 2008. I think it is time to say hello again. “There are many inadequacies in umbrellas – easy to flip by strong wind, not user friendly enough, cover the user’s front view, potentially health and safety issue… three Dutch students decided to redefine umbrella design and founded Umbrella. The most outstanding feature of SENZ is its ability to function perfectly in 100mph wind. Its secret lies in its ‘short front, long back’ silhouette, which balances well in the wind, as opposed to being caught in the thick of it. The short film on the SENZ website is a convincing demonstration, showing the design is fully functional even on a bike!” (tsilly)
