90 % of the umbrellas produced today rest on the opening and closing principle of the traditional Chinese umbrella. It has become so familiar that hardly anyone would consider improving the design. Hardly anyone…
This sounds like a job for Extremis! Instead of having the ugly slats, ribs and robes hanging above your head, we create aesthetically pleasing shades that are also much stronger and easier to use.
One with the wind
Two of our most popular shades, Inumbra and Inumbrina are designed with the mechanical components at the top. This approach allows for tighter tension on the fabric, leaving a minimal, clean surface underneath, while also creating a more aerodynamic structure to withstand the forces of mother nature’s breezes (or wrath, if you’d like).
Building on this knowledge, each Extremis shade is designed to meet the essential requirements of strength, grace, durability and necessity.
