The 'Kafya' solar umbrellas designed by creative Kamel Badawi go beyond keeping consumers dry and out of the sun by harnessing the energy of the sun's rays to power up devices and even a GPS. The umbrella has a multifunctional purpose coupled with a slender shape and portability for everyday use.

The umbrella is built to go beyond the function of providing shade or cover from the elements with tech-enhanced features. The umbrella uses solar energy to provide a fan, light, GPS connectivity, power bank and USB charging all thanks to a series of solar panels fitted onto the parasol's frame. The energy collected from the sun powers each of the features in an environmentally friendly way to give the umbrella's design much more functionality and use.
