Dutch designer Joonsoo Kim's Cloud Umbrella may not be the most practical we've ever seen, considering that you need to inflate it before staying dry - but it may be the most stylish.

Mixing practicality and whimsy, Kim - who designs under the name Joons - explained the concept behind the umbrella like this:

I translated the subject Lightness to two ways. The one of them is Happiness, and another one is Weight. I believe that people will happy with this Cloud Umbrella. Besides, Inflatable Umbrella can reduce your luggage weight.


Well... he's not wrong.
