Dedalo Stick/Umbrella Stand
The Dedalo Stick/Umbrella Stand came onto the market in 1966, the year after the Kartell Umbrella Stand we featured the other week.
Designed by Emma Gismondi Schweinberger for Italian manufacturer, Studio Artemide, it was available in several colours. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem t be in production anymore (it certainly doesn’t seem to be available in the UK) so if you want one of this pods to store your umbrellas or walking sticks, you will have to buy a vintage one.
Spirografica currently have an orange one for sale, in excellent condition complete with its original box, for which means you have to pay handsomely for it - £145. They do crop up on Ebay from time to time too so it may be worth looking out for a cheaper one there.
