Komorebigasa | carry shade with you wherever you go


Summer is approaching. For some us it’s already here. But strong ultraviolet rays and less greenery to shade you poses a problem, especially if you have sensitive skin. Creating a poetic and artful answer to that problem is Fumito Kogure and Shinya Kaneko, a designer duo that respectively come from backgrounds in fashion and architecture.

Komorebi is a characteristically Japanese saying that approximately translates to “sunshine filtering through foliage.” Applying that concept to your typical ugly plastic umbrella, the duo have managed to create komorebigasa, a lovely product  that can be used in rain or shine.





  1. My wife would love this. Can it be bought in the US?

  2. Thanks, Johnny. I’ll check that out.

  3. how beautiful stuff it is!
    I want to buy it so…
    I’m in south korea, how can I buy it??

  4. The website which sells the umbrella is in Japanese, I can’t read it…
    And I’m in Finland. How can I purchase one?

  5. I got it via White Rabbit. Thanks for the reference, Johnny. I’ll warn people that although it’s really nice, it’s quite small. I think really better suited to be a parasol than an umbrella for rain.
