The Innovative Cumulus Parasol Simulates the Look of a Real Cloud

The Cumulus Parasol is a stylish outdoor patio cloud umbrella that makes you feel like you're always under the shade of a white fluffy cloud.

Netherlands design studio Toer recently designed this creative umbrella that replicates the aesthetic look of a real cloud. The idea is that the Cumulus Parasol starts out flat and deflated and naturally self-inflates using the sun's rays. The Cumulus Parasol is able to harness the sun's energy to self-inflate through the integrated solar panels featured on the top of this white umbrella. The solar energy powers up a fan built inside the parasol that blows the cloud up in under 20 seconds. This way you're always under the shade of a simulated cloud whenever it's sunny out. The Cumulus Parasol would be a great design piece to have in your backyard.
