Hopper shade

Part of the Hopper collections

Clearly inspired by hop fields

In the opened and closed positions, Hopper shade echoes the lines of the Hopper design. It opens and closes effortlessly, thanks to an internal spring mechanism that takes up no extra space beside the table. This foldable canopy creates ample shade for everyone in a simple, aesthetically pleasing way.

High-tech polyester

High-tech polyester

Polyester is the most popular synthetic fibre in the world. The use of special finishing methods makes the fabrics weatherproof, water repellent, dirt repellent, lightfast, etc. High-tech polyester is used for a variety of “sun protection” purposes - from seat cushions to patio furniture through to awning fabrics. High water and UV resistance guarantees an excellent long-term appearance.

Choose wisely
Tree leaves, dust, CO² emissions, pollution, bird droppings etc may leave marks on a spotless white fabric, so keep this in mind when choosing the perfect location for your parasol.

Stainless steel 316

The highest stainless steel quality available is type AISI 316. Aggressive environmental conditions caused by chlorides, acid rain, salt and other rusty materials will require periodic maintenance. 

Choose wisely
We advise a regular treatment with stainless steel cleaner or protector, especially in aggressive environments. Products to clean and protect are widely available.
