The MDT tulip umbrella is constantly developed so that it can be freely designed. Whether alone as a unique design, artistically arranged in groups, or as a special means of presentation, this umbrella helps create new notions of freedom when it comes to recreational and outdoor areas. Available in a multitude of colors and individual prints, the Tulip umbrella enriches cultural and private events when combined with atmospheric lighting. Different aroma/scent diffusers are available for different food and beauty events. Rain flows down the mast and plexiglas and can be routed either into or onto the ground, depending on the location and customer preferences.
