The Living Umbrella Provides both Shade and Color

 The Kloeckner Metals York branch has partnered with Living Canopies to produce the world’s first shade umbrella to utilize plant life instead of a fabric canopy. The Living Umbrella is a patio sized umbrella with a steel frame that can host a variety of different plants. It is portable, durable, and contains its own irrigation system.

“It keeps nice, beautiful living flowers so that people can enjoy nature in a little different way,” says Dave Tilley, CEO of Living Canopies and Associate professor at the University of Maryland. “In our research lab at the University of Maryland, we are always trying to figure out ways that we can couple natural systems to solve human problems.”
