THE
DESIGNER

EVAN DEMCZUK x UMBRA


Umbra is committed to nurturing young design talent and making a positive impact on the design community. We demonstrate this commitment by initiating school collaborations, both on a global scale and within our local community in Toronto. One such collaboration involved Evan Demczuk, a talented 3rd year industrial design student at Humber College. When Umbra presented Evan's class with the challenge to design a product for the home, Evan wholeheartedly embraced the opportunity. He poured his dedication and hard work into this project, determined to create something remarkable. Recognizing Evan's passion and potential, Umbra's in-house designers collaborated with him to refine and enhance his initial concept, from sketch to production.

The initial inspiration for Tipsy came from a nostalgic balancing toy. Its captivating wobbling nature, combined with the functionality of a bottle opener, brought joy and whimsy to everyday objects. This aligns with Umbra's goal of infusing many of its products with personality and an element of surprise.

BEHIND THE DESIGN

 BEHIND THE


DESIGN


The manufacturing process of Tipsy starts in Toronto, where the Umbra Studio meticulously creates detailed technical drawings of the product, ensuring every aspect is carefully considered. These technical drawings are then transferred to Umbra's trusted manufacturers.

Here, molten metal is cast into molds, giving shape to the distinctive bird design. Afterward, once tooling is complete a range of machines and polishing techniques are used to meticulously eliminate any imperfections such as burrs or blemishes. Lastly, Tipsy undergoes a thorough quality inspection before being packaged for distribution.

A BALANCING ACT

A


BALANCING


ACT


Tipsy (similarly to balancing toys) work to ensure equal weight distribution around a central point. Umbra’s designers honed their focus to ensure that Tipsy not only balanced extremely well but also that the requirements in weight distribution did not sacrifice the aesthetics of the object. This was achieved by playing with the weight distribution between the wings and the rest of the bird's body while ensuring all surfaces flowed gracefully into each other.

By striking this delicate balance, Tipsy embodies both its engaging playfulness and its visually pleasing design, resulting in a compelling and captivating product.
