An umbrella to claim for oneself
Aquila is made of two layers of transparent vinyl, in which wooden rods are enclosed with stitching. Plastic poppers are to be found at the four corners of the umbrella. Once the poppers are closed, the umbrella takes on an irregular, curved shape. There is no mast, meaning the space underneath it is optimised, and it is, as such, held with the hands. Each user carries their umbrella as they wish – there is no right way up or set way of holding it: each user can claim it for themselves. Upon arrival at their destination, the user can hang up their umbrella by using its eyelet to let it dry.
