UMBRA SHIFT - A Contemporary, New Collection from Umbra

I'm a fan of Umbra and was very intrigued of their latest collection called Umbra Shift You must go check out the full collection - so many great/fun ideas! It will definitely make you look at everyday products in many different ways.

Umbra Shift is an extension of Umbra that focuses on contemporary influences in the design community. For more than 30 years, Umbra has broken the mould by creating entirely new categories that apply thoughtful design to everyday items. Umbra Shift revisits these roots with a roster of established, emerging, and in-house designers who share Umbra's passion to re-think things, designing personal objects they themselves would want to give or use at home. The result is a collection that expresses diverse points of view, yet sits together with a shared belief in ideas that are functional, familiar and forward thinking.

Below are some of my fav. Click on the captions for more info. You can also purchase them online on umbra.com.
