The Palma Umbrella combines innovative mechanics with a refined and modern aesthetic. All of the mechanical elements are hidden within the contours of the design. The base contains a quick-release mechanism and the aluminium shaft encloses a gas strut. All you need to do is take hold of one of the arms and start to lift the umbrella. The mechanism does the rest, raising it to a fully open position. By pulling down on one of the arms, you can retract it in just the same way. Palma’s aluminium body is powdercoated in a black, white or taupe finish and the canopy is available in a wide range of high-quality Tempotest acrylic fabrics.
