Celebrating Tibor Kalman and 20 Years of Blue Skies

Tibor Kalman and Emanuela Frattini Magnusson. Sky Umbrella. 1992

In 1992 the MoMA Design Store introduced a new umbrella to its product mix. The umbrella’s exterior gave away nothing more than a simple black canopy with a classic wooden handle. Once opened, however, a cheerful blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds was revealed, causing delight on even the rainiest of days.
