Ginkgo Umbrella

Ginkgo pitch ENG from Ginkgo Umbrella on Vimeo.

Ginkgo is developed in Rome, Milan and Bologna in the past 3 year by project creator and product designer Federico Venturi, mechanical engineer Gianluca Savalli and business engineer and company manager Marco Righi. The lightweight, colorful, flexible and 100% recyclable umbrella is the first eco-sustainable umbrella, which is able to absorb random impacts and windforce without breaking or bending.
 





 
Polypropylene has been chosen to create Gingko due to the fact that it is one of the lightest plastic materials whilst it is extremely resistant to mechanical stress and chemical agents. It also ensures flexibility to the stretchers and the joints, strength and rigidity to the pole.
 





 
It consists of 20 pieces only, and the assembling procedure needs no screws or pivots as all the couplings are obtained by long lasting and reliable snap-fit joints, and because of that there is a minimal chance of failure. The stretchers are made with a single piece of flexible plastic. The peculiar patented geometry allows them to resist strong winds by elastically flexing and returning into position without bending. The hinges are designed to last for
thousands of open-close cycles.
