We have a positive outlook here at Resource – and while the ash and rain clouds may be overhead, we’re hoping we can find use for this rather handsome sunshade this summer. Viteo, one of our favourite design consortiums, has teamed up with Structurelab to create this new series of outdoor umbrellas, to offer you cooling shade when the sun is hot. Its clever and rather beautiful shape means that by simply twisting the shade, it alters the size and shape of the shadow – and by placing the shade to the side of the table and chairs, it means that one person isn’t left roasting in the midday sun.
Other beautiful and quirky accessories for your garden by the Austrian design group include an outdoor shower with its bizarre-yet-brilliant ascending spray and a rolling outdoor wireless speaker designed by Ron Arad and F Pellisari. Clever, functional and aesthetically very pleasing indeed.
