Flying Umbrellas

Blue, Green, and Red Umbrella's on Main Street

By Cobalt Designworks
Location: Evergreen & Main Street

This bright and whimsical structure is painted psycho lime green, lollypop red and lollypop purple. It is also sustainable: when it rains, the top umbrella drains into the shaft of the next two umbrellas, then down into the stand and the concrete base, where is dispersed into the plants below. The piece is made of steel.

The project was a joint effort by the City of Vancouver and Vancouver's Downtown Association. Cobalt Designworks is a partnership between designer Jennifer Corio and metalworker Dave Frei, who are also a married couple.
