THE WIZARDS OF WEATHER CONTROL
 
The team at Blunt™ abhor the idea that umbrellas are at the forefront of the throwaway culture.
Our quest is to change the consumers acceptance of built-in obsolescence and shoddy workmanship one BLUNT™ umbrella at a time.
Our umbrellas are the result of merging a truly revolutionary design with the values of quality workmanship
and painstaking material selection. Combine this with a mad scientist testing regime,
we have created an umbrella we are super proud to hand on to you.
or even longer. Who really knows how long, but they are without doubt,
Putting it bluntly, our umbrellas are the single most significant advancement in umbrella design, in over a century...
the world's best umbrellas - designed by New Zealand.
 
 
WE HATE UMBRELLAS
 
1999. Design engineer Greig Brebner stepped out of a doorway into the human rush hour of a London pavement,
the blustery sky pockmarked with the first sprinkles of rain.
At 1.9m tall, the New Zealander could see over most of the crowd to his destination.
But as the downpour gathered pace, his eyes were suddenly at the mercy of hundreds of bristling spikes:
Moments later the wind turned one of them inside out, its owner struggling to avoid taking Greig’s eye out.
 
 THE UMBRELLA IS HISTORY
 
Until the moment Greig set to work on his kitchen table with a glue gun and some kite material,
the basic design of the modern umbrella hadn’t changed since 1928.
They come in all sorts of colours, have little push buttons and lights, some even have holes in the top
that let the wind out (and water in) to attempt to stop them turning inside out.
But the basics are the same. And they don’t really work.
This has led to a product that fails if there’s more than a breath of wind,
breaks completely after a few months and then ends up in landfill.
 
NOT ANOTHER POINTLESS UMBRELLA
 
So Greig started from scratch to redesign the entire idea of a personal weather protection canopy
The engineer in him worked towards something that would outperform everything on the market,
working flawlessly and effortlessly in conditions way beyond the capabilities of any umbrella in the world.
The designer in Greig demanded that it must also be elegant and stylish.
And the tall guy in him just wanted to make sure these damn things didn’t keep poking him in the face.
 
BLUNT IS BORN
 
When Greig got home he couldn’t wait to unpack his new ideas and test them out in blustery New Zealand
He would take his prototype and walk up to Auckland’s One Tree Hill in the middle of a raging storm
and see if the weather could break it.
When he and the Blunt™ kept surviving that, he reckoned he was on the right track.
When a Blunt™ performed and functioned in winds at Force 12 (>117 km/h),
the maximum setting of the test wind tunnel, he got quite excited.
 
DISPOSABLE TO INDISPENSABLE
 
The Blunt™ aim is not just to redefine the umbrella itself, but the entire throwaway culture.
Each year millions upon millions of broken umbrellas are discarded. Very few are repaired or recycled,
so the vast majority of them end up adding to the pollution buried in landfill sites.
This wastes your money and time, and all the time and resources that went into making products
that simply weren’t up to the job in the first place.
