Founder and Chief Product Architect, Dougan Clarke, began TUUCI with a singular vision: to design and create the most durable, stylish and functionally supreme shade systems in the world. Furthermore, these products had to be based on a modular system of simplified maintenance and increased resilience to the outdoor elements. Since its inception in 1997, TUUCI has redefined the shade industry and become one of the leading brands for high-end shade structures. TUUCI offers a wide selection of products from classic umbrellas to cabanas to privacy lounges in contemporary to classic styles. In addition to artistic beauty, TUUCI products are engineered with marine-grade components that are durable and easy to operate. Outdoor cafés and many of the world’s leading resorts and hotels have selected TUUCI products because of the combination of beauty, durability and function.
