The Kosmos Parasol by Dirk Wynants for Extremis
The Kosmos parasol is definitely a typical example of Extremis innovation. Kosmos Parasol is a very cozy sun umbrella, available in two different shapes: square and round. You can still make even a cozier atmosphere by upgrading it with a LED lighting. The sunshade is set up in 4 different ways: in the cosmos, right on the ground, a concrete plinth and a pedestal with concrete on wheels.
Designed by Dirk Wynants for Extremis, the Kosmos parasol is a unique shade covering which opens like a fan. This creates a flat shade and with its cantilevered base it is especially wind-resistant.
The parasol is a perfect example of Dirk Wynants’ out-of-the-box philosophy. Another plus of this amazing sun shade is that it can be installed at a limited height creating a more intimate atmosphere and does not have any technical components obstructing the view. This way everybody can enjoy the shade and gain an even stronger feeling of intimacy.
All the technical components are cleverly concealed from sight, the piece being a true example of aesthetic beauty. The innovative umbrella opens with the help of two hidden magnets. In very windy weather the magnets get detached and the parasol closes automatically. In its open position, the parasol can withstand a wind force 6 on the Beaufort scale according to manufacturer’s tests. The provided parasol cover offers protection against dirt and wind. The parasol’s opening and closing mechanism is a truly innovating idea.
Kosmos parasol combines perfectly with the Kosmos 8-seater Extremis , but apart from that it is also very beautiful! The parasol in combination with the 8-seater table offers a perfect setting for private pools and patios. A simple leather band ensures that the inclination of the open sunshade is enough for water to pour off.
All the materials used are of superior quality and exceptionally durable. Stainless steel guarantees a long lifetime and at the same time the high-tech polyester fabric used for the shade is very robust and UV resistant.
