Sonumbra by Loop.pH

Imagine an outsize parasol planted in an African village. By day, it offers shelter from the sun: by night, it sheds light for the local community using the energy collected in solar cells embedded in its canopy. It's clever, it explores a new role for textiles, and it shows concern for the planet. In short: an eco-friendly solution to a pernicious modern problem.

Prototype designed and fabricated by Loop.pH 2008.
First exhibited at MoMA 2008.
