Concrete villa with impressive patio
At home, Gargantua, Inumbra
Concrete, glass and afrormosia wood. Those are the three ingredients in this modern split-level home that is located near the dunes of Oostduinkerke, Belgium. The impressive terrace has some closed walls that offer protection from the - sometimes strong - sea winds. The terrace forms a great connection between indoors and outdoors.
The Gargantua table with Inumbra parasol is the perfect fit for this patio. They are the center of attention and get a natural spotlight when the sun shines through the large hole in the roof. The galvanized steel and Iroko hardwood of this design table match the architectural elements of the house. Not only do the colors pair well, they are also anti-aging materials that need very little maintenance.
Underneath the parasol
The uniqueness of the Inumbra parasol lies in its design. The mechanism that opens and closes the parasol sits above the fabric, so that you don’t have a jumble of ropes hanging above your head. The shape and high tension make the Inumbra extremely windproof. The surface of the parasol is closer to the table to provide more shade and coziness for you to enjoy.
If you look a bit closer, you'll notice that the Inumbra has no parasol base. It seems to be floating as it rests on the Gargantua tabletop. This gives a more spacious and sleek overall look and provides more leg space.

The functionalities of the Gargantua picnic table are of course ideal for a household with children. The adjustable benches can be placed in one of the 4 possible positions, so that even young kids can easily enjoy their meal and join in on the conversation, without having to pull up a highchair. Sit down, relax on the cushions, lean back against the (optional) backrest and enjoy some high-quality family time!
