When and where the umbrella originated is not quite clear. What we do know is that SENZ Umbrellas does a big step forward in the evolution of umbrellas.
Accordingly, "The aerodynamic SENZ Original is the first umbrella that will never go inside-out: It easily slices its way through all winds, from an afternoon breeze to strong autumn gusts. The SENZ Original is unique for always finding the best position in the wind, which requires minimum effort. Playing with the wind has become not only easy and comfortable, it's extremely fun too!"
Most surprisingly is probably its asymmetrical design that combines a perfect sight with rain protection. Just like airplane wings and Olympic speed-skating suits, the umbrellas have been tested at the wind tunnels of the Delft University of Technology - this one promises to be windproof up to wind force 10.
For these Dutch industrial designers, the rainy climate in the Netherlands was probably the perfect ingredient for this kind of innovation.
