Summer has arrived! The heat and sun are here to stay (for a while) and the temperature is perfect for swimming in the sea or going to the pool, but it can be uncomfortable outdoors in the garden or on the terrace.
In fact, strong sunlight, with its harsh UV rays that are dangerous for the skin and human health in general, is certainly a problem when the temperature climbs to 35 or 40 degrees Celsius. Therefore, it's important to protect yourself during the hottest time of the day, but without giving up the option to relax outdoors.
Parasols and sun umbrellas have always been the preferred solutions for this problem, and today, we want to talk about one in particular, developed by the designer Chi Wing Lo for Giorgetti.
We'd like to present the contemporary Gea parasol, from the outdoor collection. From the Greek word γαια, which means "the earth", all of the pieces in the Gea collection celebrate the beauty and openness of outdoor life, as a way of living that absolutely must not be discouraged by the fear of negative consequences from the climate.
For this reason, Gea collection pieces are all made in an exclusive way to be resistant to damage caused by time and weather, without giving up elegance and comfort.
Precisely, the Gea parasol has a regulation system that tilts the shade and a swivel frame that allows it to rotate 360°, which guarantees maximum comfort. Moreover, the parasol sets on a circular base embellished with a balanced pattern, which increases elegance.
The most revolutionary aspect of this piece is its cover in a a fabric with micro-holes with piping in eco-leather, which allows air to flow through while blocking the sun's rays.
In this way, the sun doesn't penetrate and the air circulates to guarantee a level of comfort that is not associated with all parasols, which are sometimes compared to a "greenhouse" instead of actual sun protection. For this reason, people avoid them during the hottest hour of the day.
Completing the parasol is a robust stainless steel structure protected against rust and a steel base. If desired the base can also have marble inserts.
This is the perfect solution for this time of the year. it will allow you to be outdoors without worrying about getting too much sun.
