Description

The seven umbrellas of hotel Sandy Lane in Barbados offer comfort and elegance for guests who want to spend their time on the terrace with direct views of the Caribbean Sea. The umbrellas at three different heights are artfully arranged between the existing tropical trees and partially overlap, creating a continuous protection from the sun and rain.
The folding and unfolding of an umbrella is automatically controlled by an electromechanical spindle drive.
