+ This new version features a double-layered canopy made from rPET—recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.
+ What hasn’t changed is its uplifting design: when the umbrella is opened, its interior reveals a blue sky dotted with fluffy, white clouds.
+ The Sky Umbrella is designed by Tibor Kalman, an artist and designer in MoMA’s collection, and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson.
+ Our point of view is uniquely informed by MoMA’s historical relationship to design.
In 1932, The Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. MoMA has long recognized design’s important role in our culture alongside more traditional mediums like painting and sculpture.
+ Our selection process is unlike any other. First, we assess a potential new product against our design filters, a set of 8 criteria that we use to ensure every item is a good fit with our vision of good design. Next, each proposed product is evaluated by MoMA's curatorial department. Only those items that make it through these two steps successfully can become part of our assortment.
+ Our assortment, like the pieces in MoMA’s Architecture and Design Department, is item driven. We identify a particular design object that epitomizes an important movement, collection, or designer rather than creating a complete catalog of every item of a movement, collection, or artist.
+ Every purchase you make supports MoMA's educational programs. Every year, we engage with over one million people through our programming in the Museum, in all five of New York City’s boroughs, and around the world.
The Mini Sky Umbrella opens automatically and measures 11l x 2" diam. (closed) and 21h x 43" diam. (open).
