MDT's tulip umbrellas fit the Cosmopolitan aesthetic perfectly
Feb '11
Outdoor textile manufacturer MDT-Tex and its innovative tulip umbrella, has made another mark in the luxury hotel sector, with the recent opening of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

For the 2295-room Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas, which opened less than eight weeks ago, MDT provided its custom-made tulip umbrellas to add a stunning aesthetic to the luxury resort's Pool District that overlooks the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Already profiled by major media outlets worldwide, the pool area is being praised for its modern, luxurious ambiance, with MDT's exclusive tulip umbrellas being featured throughout the landscape of the resort's three-pool rooftop oasis.

"Our trendy tulip umbrellas fit the Cosmopolitan Hotel aesthetic perfectly, and there is no greater compliment than to be part of this exciting resort experience," said Joel Linton, MDT's vice president of business development.

MDT-Tex is the leading designer and manufacturer of large-scale sunshade systems and serves a variety of hospitality interests, including trendy nightclubs and rooftop oases, to posh hotels and restaurants. For 20 years, MDT has collaborated with architects and designers worldwide to develop unique, customized umbrellas and shade structures that harmonize perfectly with the surrounding architecture.

"We are excited that MDT's innovative shade structures are making an impact on the Las Vegas market with such an trendy outdoor rooftop pool area," said Martin Weigel, MDT's Director of Operations.

In addition to the Cosmopolitan Hotel, the tulip is showcased at Chicago's Wit Hotel "Roof" Lounge, the Encore Beach Club at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas and at the Hookah Lounge in Mexico City. Additionally, it was featured on the grounds at the 2010 U.S. Open Tennis Tournament in Flushing, N.Y. this August.

In addition to rooftop design, MDT Sun Protection Systems AG collaborates with designers to transform outdoor areas into attractive, usable spaces, allowing customers to maximize use of patios, plazas, courtyards, rooftops and more. MDT possesses unparalleled expertise in the design, manufacture of large scale, high quality sun protection systems, membrane construction and customized textile architecture. The range of products combines aesthetics and functionality that deliver architectural harmony with sophisticated European flair.
