In 1992 the MoMA Design Store introduced the Sky Umbrella by legendary graphic designer Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson. The umbrella's exterior gives away nothing more than a plain, black canopy and a simple wooden handle. Once opened, the interior reveals a cheerful blue sky dotted with fluffy, white clouds.

The umbrella's surprising blue-sky interior echoes the playful career of Kalman, whose work is featured in the Museum's collection. Kalman once again used the visual motif of the Sky Umbrella in a 1995 issue of Colors, an award-winning global magazine where Kalman served as the founding editor-in-chief. Made of sturdy nylon covering the photo-process-printed sky on polyester with a durable wooden shaft and handle with a manual open/close mechanism.

FEATURES:
- Made from nylon, plywood, & wood.
- Designed by Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson.
- Dimensions: 35in (L), 38in (D).
In 1932, The Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department dedicated to design and architecture. MoMA has long recognized design’s important role in our culture alongside more traditional mediums like sculpture and painting.

MoMA products are not just selected, but carefully evaluated through a selection process which involves a rigorous examination of each item’s design DNA and its ability to enrich and enliven with every use. MoMA will firstly assess a potential new product against their own design filters, a set of 8 criteria that are used to ensure every item is a good fit with the vision of good design. Next, each proposed product is evaluated by MoMA's curatorial department. Only those items that make it through these two steps successfully can become part of the MoMA assortment.
This item usually ships between 1 - 3 days depending on colour selection.
