Behind the Design


Nubrella® turned to the highly acclaimed product design and engineering firm, Tool Inc. who played an instrumental role in finalizing Nubrella®’s new open front design and preparing it for manufacturing. Nubrella® will be working with Tool to design several other models of its ‘game changing’ new Hands-Free & Wind-Resistant new weather protection device including a highly demanded children’s version and adding wireless Bluetooth technology capability for complete Hands-Free communication.

It happened on a rainy NYC Day

One rainy, windy day Alan was sitting inside a New York city coffee shop. Gazing out the window, Alan became transfixed on everyone battling with their umbrellas…inverting, flying away…he saw one frustrated man toss his inverted mess into the trash can. He also empathized with the workers’ who couldn’t escape the rain and wind, wearing only a raincoat.

It was at this moment that an image appeared in his mind of what an alternative weather protection device/umbrella could look like. He sketched it and Nubrella was born! From there, Alan worked with several leading design and engineering firms to bring his vision to life.

Every great idea begins with a small thought. On that rainy, windy, miserable day in NYC, that small thought changed my life. And now, I am about to change yours! Nubrella worked with some of the leading product design & engineering firms to develop something far overdue. Perseverance really does pay off. I hope you enjoy it!
