Umbra has new space-saving items this spring that put you in control in every room in your home.
For the bath, the STRETCH towel bar sets up in minutes without tools, screws or fasteners. STRETCH uses bungee cords that stretch all the way over the door using bendable hooks, and has three adjustable full-sized towel bars. "It’s the maximum amount of storage for an underutilized space," says Umbra’s Nick Gillissie, who co-designed STRETCH with Paul Rowan.
Then there’s the elegant FLIPPER. This curvaceous caddy, designed by David Quan, has customizable flip-down shelves and accommodates a vast array of shower needs, including liter-sized bottles – it even has a clip for a razor. And it will never rust!
Whether used as an easy to carry hamper or to stash and sort items anywhere, the popular CRUNCH® can, designed by Paul Rowan, proves its value every day. Now it’s available with nature-inspired graphics by Sandra Ciganic-McKinney in four distinctive color combinations.
Need extra kitchen storage? Sativa Turner designed a fresh take on a classic with SCHWING, a set of three stainless steel baskets linked by ball chain that keep cooking necessities within reach but out of the way.
Any room with books is a good place for the CONCEAL shelf. A winner in the 2005 Umbra/Pratt design competition, CONCEAL, which can hold a stack of ten books, becomes invisible thanks to two tiny hooks that clasp the bottom cover of the first book placed on it. Says designer Miron Lior, a Pratt junior, “It adds an element of surprise to any dorm room, home library or office.”
