Duldig Studio – Museum and Sculpture Garden

Brilliant Brolly Umbrella Decoration Competition Closes 22 Jan 2019, Cash Prizes

Duldig Studio is running an umbrella decorating competition to celebrate the invention of the “magical umbrella” that readily folds into our hands, to raise money to conserve and care for our collection and support our educational programs.

Slawa Horowitz-Duldig invented, patented and marketed her modern folding umbrella in Vienna in 1929. She was forced to sell her patents in 1938 when together with her husband, the sculptor Karl Duldig, and baby Eva the family fled Vienna and began their long journey to Australia via Switzerland and Singapore. The umbrella prototype, drawings, and patent documents are key works in the Duldig Studio’s collection and fundamental to the Duldig Story.

Be inspired to design your own “Brilliant Brolly” and join us in our celebration of inventiveness and creativity!
