Foldable table bench, parasol and solar panel

Solution

Structure.

Folded structure consists of two main circles covered with white rubber for easy handling.

The lower circle contains the base, the bench and the table.

The top circle is the parasol which also contains the solar panel.

The structure is easy to mount because it is automatic. In 2 seconds the folded structure opens completely.

This allows us to store it without occupying space in the garden.

It also allows us to transport it easily on the roof rack of the car to use it in the countryside. Once mounted, if we want, we can graduate the bench and the table to our comfort thanks to the rails and hinges which allow adjustment.

Solar Panel

The panel itself gives us shelter from rain and strong sun.  However, the really interesting thing is that is stores energy which we can later use for cooking, for example: electric grills, sandwich toasters, coffee machines etc., or for leisure activities such as laptops, mobile phone rechargers, radio-cassettes etc.  Also with the energy which has been saved during the day, it can be used to illuminate the structure at night.

Loud Speakers

The energy also offers another possibility, that of the speakers which are placed in the upper part of the structure and emit ultrasound which is a mosquito repellent.

They also have an Audio In connection for our favourite music (radio �cassettes, mp3 players etc.).

Lower part

Being an empty, circular shape allows us to have a sensorial experience: that of being able to feel the grass in the garden with our feet, or, if the structure is mounted on the seashore, to feel the water while we are enjoying the day and the views.
