Umbra Design

We live it. We breathe it. It's in our soul. We start with inspiration and end with innovation. We make everyday things beautiful and functional.

Design Collaborations

Design collaborations allow us to connect with designers living and working all over the globe. Outside designers bring fresh perspective into our studio, whether they are a seasoned or emerging designer.

The award winning GARBINO CAN designed by Karim Rashid in 1997. Currently in the permanent collection at MOMA in New York City.

We are always looking for fresh talent and original design. If you wish to submit a design, contact us at designwithus@umbra.com for further details on the design submission process. Compensation is on a royalty basis if we proceed with production.

Design Competitions

For many years we have engaged students through school collaborations, donations, design competitions and mentorships. Competitions give students an opportunity to hone their skills and potentially have their products support both the students and their schools.
