The brief of this project was to design a set of parasols for the gardens, set in a vast landscape of Willingdon Golf course. Inspired by the fauna of the landscape, we imagined them as fluttering butterflies. The Parasol was designed as a wing of a butterfly light and fragile. The angle of wings could be adjusted to seek protection from the sun. They could fold up in the evening and become a night lamp in the garden. The skeleton of the parasol was finished in lacquered aluminium covered with translucent batyline fabric.
