Details: The umbrella design is the work of Justin Nagelberg, a designer intern with design brand Nooka.

Nooka explains the unique design best, "Like origami, the SA™ uses planar tension to generate its form."

"The inner and outer canopies move in unison to open and close the umbrella, allowing the umbrella to be lighter since it does not need an inner metal skeleton."

"The material is flexible when not tense, allowing the SA™ to bounce back into shape when exposed to high winds."

With its design roots in origami, the name "SA" originates from several Japanese words: the word for umbrella (kasa), the word rain (same), and the word sasu, which is the verb used to describe holding an umbrella.
