Lampbrella - Street Lamp Equipped with Automatic Umbrellas


Developed by designer Mikhail Belyaev, the Lampbrella represents a concept in which street lamps are mixed with electrically operated umbrellas.

The idea is that when the first drops of rain fall, the rain sensors on street lamps automatically deploy the umbrellas so people could hide under them.

The designer also envisioned a motion sensor, with the help of which the umbrella automatically folds when nobody is standing under it.

It is worth mentioning that during thunderstorm, it is not advised to stand under a big metal pole. However, the designer proposed making the poles from fiberglass. It is also possible to use a grounding strap to divert any lightning strike safely to earth.
