Parasol Modular Furniture

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

The carport I built in the spring of 2011 has been dismantled and the pieces from the carport have been turned into furniture to help fund the next Parasol Modular experiment. Pictured are some of the different types of furniture pieces that will be for sale on www.kickstarter.com. beginning November 1, 2011.

Who would have thought that playing with a child’s toy would inspire an idea for a solar carport for electric vehicles? This is what happens when architect Kerrik Wessel plays with his children. Conceived with a child’s imagination and detailed with an architect’s expertise, Parasol Modular is an artful approach to modular building systems.
