The Messina Parasol from Fritz Hansen is made from materials made to last and designed with a classic aesthetic that should complement any outdoor space. Pair it with the Capri Umbrella Foot for everything you need to stay protected from the sun and rain this Summer. The Small parasol also has a tilting function at the top to better protect you from the sun's rays.
The pole and framework are constructed from solid aluminium, stainless steel and meranti timber. Meranti is a dark reddish-brown hardwood that closely resembles mahogany. It has excellent weather-proof properties and is naturally resistant to rotting. It requires limited care and it's life can easily be prolonged with an annual application of some Danish wood oil.
The fabric part of the parasol is made from a Teflon® material. Teflon is a synthetic fibre that is treated to make it water-repellent and dirt-repellent. It is not waterproof but it will withstand a Summer shower and keep you dry underneath.
