Rain Shield - the umbrella designed by Lin Min-Wei & Liu Li-Hsiang. The new sharp should better protect against high winds, windy rain and turning inside-out in a downpour, it easily folds and compresses into a 180-millimetre-diameter disc instead of a cylinder. Taiwanese designers created the concept for the Red Dot design awards. You can see how it works in a video.
