Knirps: Umbrella specialist protects from the sun

Knirps, the inventor of the foldable pocket-size umbrella, has been a successful manufacturer of superior quality umbrellas for 85 years. The Knirps’ trademark with the red dot is wellknown for excellent craftsmanship, its use of premium quality materials and intelligent functional details. Up to 200 million pocket-size umbrellas have been sold in 120 countries so far. Now Knirps gets out of the rain and with a ‘big brother’ parasol starts to protect from the sun.

An international team of technicians, members of Knirps’ own research and development department, trend scouts, and product designers such as Prof. Dr. Bernhard Rothbucher of ‘akabuna’ design agency, are altogether responsible for the ‘Knirps Sun Shade’ project, whose objective was to develop an innovative and modern parasol that is chic, yet distinct from products of competitors – just like the umbrellas the company has been producing for decades.

This new sun shade has been manufactured with a keen eye for details true to Knirps’ quality standards. It was presented to the public on spoga+gafa 2012 and will be made available by selected retailers from January 2013.
