We like Umbra. And we especially like that they give up-and-coming designers an opportunity to showcase their work. One of the "collections" we often pay attention to is the U+ Studio Collection, as it showcases more conceptual designs, all with the Umbra price tag we're familiar with (these items are inexpensive). Take a peek at some new items, after the jump!
Balloona Stool - $350 A playful disposition. Over 500 balloons are tied on a solid wood stool. Designer Natalie Kruch has a penchant for making the ordinary beautiful and intriguing. The BALLOONA stool is Natalie's first object with Umbra, after graduating from the University of Alberta, Canada.

Carr found inspiration when he found two vintage coffee tables. Creating a bookrack for his own home. He configured them ingeniously to give these tables a new life as bookshelves. This design is now recreated with a mahongany natural top and black lacquered legs.
