Because of its innovative unfolding mechanism, the umbrella can be adapted to the needs of the moment, whether it is fully, half or hardly open, providing different shade for each position. When the canopy is closed, a simple mechanism allows a 360° rotation of the canopy creating a vane effect when the wind blows.
