Leaf is inspired by the natural protection the canopy offers us in nature. The parasol mimics the use of individual leafs to efficiently catch as much light as possible and position itself towards the sun throughout the day. The 4 separate circular blades on the parasol can be fitted and adjusted to provide a maximum of protection for its users. The playful design can be customized for its environment, and just as the plants it is inspired on, offers multiple possible forms based on the needs of the environment it will be placed in.
Leaf is upholstered with Sunbrella fabric, which has unique characteristics that lend the parasol it’s esthetic and functional qualities.
Leaf is presented on two locations during Dutch Design Week:
The Leaf that is on show at VDMA is upholstered in a range of Sunbrella fabrics and showcases different bindings, colors and patterns that can be found in the extensive collection.
The Leaf that is on show at Kazerne is upholstered in Sunbrella Heritage, furniture fabric that is made of a 50-50 blend of recycled and virgin fiber. For the heritage collection Sunbrella reclaims leftover fabric from their manufacturing facilities and customers across the country and use it to make the yarn.
