Kartell 1960s space age Umbrella Stand by Gino Colombini

Kartell_umbrella

I'm not sure what it's like where you are, but today, it has rained pretty much all day here. Which means umbrellas and somewhere to store them – enter the Kartell space age Umbrella Stand.

Designed by Gino Colombini, it's a cylindrical, injection moulded container that's both eye-catching and indestructible. And as an added bonus, it has two lateral openings, offering you the option of using the lower section as a waste basket, as well as an optional upper tray to convert it into an ashtray.

Various colours, retailing for £81.
