Design House Stockholm – Umbrella Stand Blue



Umbrella Stand Blue Origin: Sweden No more wet umbrellas dripping all over the hall. A contrast of soft sponginess and austere steel. Eva Schildt?s umbrella stand is not only a functional design piece, it?s also an Yves Klein inspired sculpture, with its artificial sponge and the cheeky frame in lacquered steel. The utilitarian and sculptural design, as pencil thin as a sketch for a cartoon, was a hit at the furniture fair in Milan in 2003. ?I wanted to create an object that was more of sculpture than a product,? says Eva. ?In the sense that an umbrella is something that protects us and directs water away from us, the sponge, as something which draws in water, is its polar opposite.? Lacquered steel and synthetic sponge. Size: Height 72 cm
