Calling TUUCI an umbrella design company shoots far short of the mark. From its minimalist parasols to classic pavilions, colourful outdoor lounges and exotic cabanas, TUUCI’s spectacular products can only be described as ‘shade architecture’. TUUCI was set up 18 years ago by Dougan Clarke in Miami, Florida, in the United States. He built the first parasols in a small boat workshop and this heritage is still visible. With his roots as a marine rigger, Clarke used the expertise of the ship building industry in the designs. All TUUCI products are made from high quality outdoor materials. What’s not to like?
