Parasol canopy protects us from the heat of the sun and the rain, but Skycycle Parasol works together with its surrounding to give you better shade and light. Assaf Israel teamed up with Hanan Layosh to create this innovative canopy, they wanted to design a canopy that lives in harmony with its surroundings while respecting nature. A light sensor is incorporated on top to detect changes in sunlight intensity, then taking advantage of solar energy, the semi-transparent surfaces can rotate slowly to shade you from different directions. When the sunlight is a bit weak, the surface of Skycycle Parasol will open to let the light in and allow you to enjoy the warmth of the sun.
Underneath the upper surface, there are several LED lights which powered by solar energy can be used after sunset. Simply spin the shade to gradually increase or decrease its brightness.
