Beach Shelter / Beach umbrella

Beach Shelter
Beach Shelter

When you want to change clothes or swimsuit at the beach, you usually have to wait in line to the locker room. Also, the wet clothes can cause discomfort or make your skin become wrinkled if you wear them for a long time.
The design of Beach Shelter combines the functions of parasol and dressing room. The umbrella can be bent to form a closed space which is very safe and provides privacy. Users also can stay inside with their family and friends at the same time. The operating switch is on the main skeleton of the parasol.
