Going Undercover: A Tune With a View

May 7, 2009 by


We wear sunglasses to protect our eyes but we still want to see.  These new outdoor umbrellas by design team Bert&Dennis, offer protection and cover from the sun while allowing an unobstructed view of the infinite sky above.  Or dine al fresco in the evening and count your shooting stars.


And for tunes with a view, or music to your eyes, the team has created i parasol, an outdoor umbrella with a connection for your iPod.

Bert & Dennis will be participants at this year’s ICFF Studio featuring on-the-rise designers.
