The jury consists of experts from Umbra and GrabCAD.
Umbra was born over 30 years ago when a graphic designer by the name of Paul Rowan couldn’t find a nice window shade to hang in his new apartment window. So, he made one. And others liked it! He soon teamed up with friend Les Mandelbaum...and Umbra was born. It was from this first product that Umbra got its name - ‘umbra’ means ‘shade’ in Latin. Since that time, Umbra has grown to become the world leader of modern, original, casual and affordable design for the home, introducing designs that have broken the mold and creating entirely new categories in the home decor and gifting market.
Umbra’s products are available at over 30,000 retailers in more than 90 countries.
