Shadylace Parasol by Droog
design by Chris Kabel
Sitting under this parasol is like sitting under a real tree: a bit of sunlight shines through and creates beautiful dappled shades. A small bird has already perched on top.
Shade only, does not include the stand.
Available in two sizes: standard and extra large.
About the Designer
Chris Kabel was born in Haarlem in 1975 and grew up in Bloemendaal. He started his studio after graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2001 and since 2002 has based his studio in Rotterdam. Often developing new material techniques or incorporating mundane ones in a surprising way, Kabel brings the pragmatic together with the conceptual.
Besides Droog, he has worked with international companies and institutions like Moooi, Koizumi, Royal VKB, the City of Seoul, the City of Bruges, Levi's, Charles & Marie and Alessi. His work is collected by museums such as Fondation Nationale d'Art Contemporain, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Boijmans Museum Rotterdam and Hangaram Design Museum Seoul.
Chris teaches and does workshops at several design schools, amongst others at Design Academy Eindhoven and at ECAL in Lausanne. Recently his Seam chair and bench, a development of Droog's Dry Tech III project was awarded with the DOEN Material prize for its innovative approach to sustainability.
Droog started in 1993 as a statement on design, a no-nonsense, down to earth design mentality. Their unique way of thinking has defined as a conceptual design company over the last 16 years, and has played a role in defining Dutch design internationally. Droog values what it means to be human, including subjectivity, notions of beauty and meaning, and desire for high quality experiences at the core of what they do. Droog stands for a luxury of content and experience that change perspective on daily life-- whether it is authenticity, humor, slowness, engagement, or nature, the abundance of what is scarce is true luxury.
