Windproof umbrella wins top design award

The windproof umbrella designed by three former students from Delft University of Technology, has been given this year’s Red Dot award; a prize given for innovative design. In total, 2,548 products were nominated.

Previous winners include Porsche and Apple. The umbrella looks like a cycling helmet with a short front and longer back, making it difficult for the wind to get underneath.
