The concept is very simple – big illuminated umbrellas of different colours placed next to benches along the Water colours/Illuminade route.
The umbrellas, being both canopies and lanterns, provide shelter, safety and creat playful, friendly atmosphere in the public space.
Glowing oversized umbrellas – not to be taken too seriously. Seen from afar, they are a bright beacon of a simple recognizable shape, naturally attracting visitors. Close by – it is a comforting spot, a shelter, that protects from rain and gives light, inviting to stop to share the moment of joy.
People being under umbrella can have a chat, share impressions and who know what it may bring: new friendship, new creative ideas, new love…
The installation consists of 5 oversized umbrellas.
