Can be used in a range of areas including small gardens to extensive public spaces.


Square-shaped tulip umbrella canopy resembling an upwardly directed flower.

Features and benefits:

  • The umbrella struts are located above the membrane when opened and are not visible from below.
  • Rainwater can be collected and drained between the Plexiglas cover and the umbrella mast.
  • Highly functional due to the possibility of internal lighting, and a water drain which feeds directly into the ground (or drained above ground in the mobile version).
  • Roofing sheets are fade, light and water resistant, and can be replaced if required.
  • Operated with a hand crank as standard. Electrical operation is also available.
  • The parasol is manufactured from aluminium and provides high stability.
  • Can either be positioned singularly, or displayed with additional umbrellas.
  • All materials are water and corrosion-resistant, and fixing screws are rust-resistant.
  • Easy to install with the foldable adapter.
