Solar Garden Umbrella Offers Shade and Light
December 13, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Offering the after-dark glow of a garden umbrella strung with tiny lights, this solar one does eco-friendly double duty. The Day Shade Night Light Umbrella, or DSNL Umbrella, soaks up the sun’s rays while protecting you from them while keeping you shaded during the day. The design, by Steve Yang and Che-Hsiao, incorporates a flexible solar panel through which the sun’s energy is stored in the umbrella’s frame.
