You know, sometimes even in Ancient Greece, it rained. To remind you of the fact, Seletti (the home of all things weird and wonderful) has joined creative forces with Studio Job to create the Milo umbrella holder.
Shaped as a naked lady silhouette (to resemble the sculptures of the time), it’s a piece of art that’s both easy on the eye and practical. If it were up to us, we’d place it right by the front door – so it's the first thing you and guests see and handy to drop your umbrella into.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. At once highly specific and yet entirely universal, personally expressive and yet experimental, Studio Job has crafted a body of work that draws upon classical, popular and contemporary design and highly visual and sculptural art.
The studio works across many areas including art, design, fashion, architecture and interiors having worked with a vast range of high profile clients. In 2017 Studio Job teamed up with Italian manufacturer Seletti to form the joint brand BLOW producing products in their pop spirit with a radical twist. Studio Job are consistently ranked as one of the world’s most influential players within design and art. Their highly collectable work creates a bridge between object and product by merging monumental design and functional art.
Founded in 1964, Italian lifestyle brand Seletti focuses on presenting design projects that showcase the creative characteristics synonymous with Italian excellence. Linking design to pop art in the most charming and irreverent manner, Seletti’s collections blend art with daily life icons.
Since its inception, Seletti has always followed its own rules. From iconic lighting and art de la table to statement objects and furniture, Seletti’s collection of irreverent pieces blends art with the everyday and are designed to make life more fun and exciting.
Seletti is now led by Stefano and Miria Seletti and has expanded into a range of collections embodying enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and experimentation.
Stefano has always believed in reinvention and works with a range of young Italian and international designers to evolve their designs. By also working with people outside of the design world, Stefano can look at the process from new angles, his unconventional and non-academic background lead him to break down barriers and journey towards a ‘new beauty. For Seletti, this is (r)evolution.
