Awarded with a Good Design award in Japan, the outdoor fractal shade overhang is a good investment if you're working toward living an even better, healthier life.

Designed by LOSFEE Co. Ltd and Kiyohito Tamotsu, the "fractal shade for your better outdoor life" concept was inspired by nature, incorporating geometric shapes, where each piece resembles the others, similar to leaves or the patterns of a tree branch. Made out of light aluminum, the overhang works like trees, offering some natural light and ventilation, offering heat dissipation in hot urban spaces.
