Magis Umbrella Stand

The Umbrella Stand for Magis allows long and short umbrellas to be easily popped in and stowed when dashing in from the rain. Its compact size and triangular shape make for easy placement in an entryway or hallway. Available in orange, white, and black.

With their Umbrella Stand, East London designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby playfully interpret a standard of the entryway. A simple series of holes and a low profile enable, as Jay Osgerby has commented, “furled or unfurled umbrellas of any size to be quite literally popped in.” Whimsy does not come at the expense of function, however: a beveled edge around the top of each opening channels any rainwater running down the umbrella into the hole and not on the floor.

“Every time we start a project, we approach it like it’s the first thing we’ve ever done.”
