Public art installations are always a great find, and this outdoor incorporation of ‘floating’ umbrellas has got our jaws dropping. Located in the municipality of Águeda, Portugal, are a slew of umbrellas in various colors looming above the streets in a vibrant art installation. We have many weird and wonderful design and architecture blogs here at inthralld.
Not only do these open umbrellas provide beautiful scenery to look up at as you’re strolling through the promenade during a sunny day, but they create much-appreciated shade and some visually interesting patterns on the floor. The parasols are strung above from wires, and their shiny material provides a bit of sheer, colored light to emit through the suspended shades.
