An installation for a Beirut Boutique made of 45,000 cocktail parasols. Copyright Najla El Zein Studio.

This summer window display is inspired by corals and the many different faces of the sea.
45,000 paper cocktail parasols were hand-planted on a custom made structure to form an underwater landscape.
The graduated hues span the whole facade, evoking vibrant marine colors.
The window lives differently throughout the day. In daylight, the corals reflect their true, basic colors. Deeper into the night, different hues which  are projected onto the seascape slowly start to emerge. The tides of light collide with the corals, highlighting their more enigmatic qualities.
