For over 15 years TUUCI has been creating the most innovative, unique and stylish shade platforms in the industry. Founded with a passion by Dougan Clarke, TUUCI was born from the marine industry. This means every single parasol, lounge and cabana we create has been meticulously engineered to perform without question, in any environment. But they don’t just perform. They also turn heads with an unparalleled sense of style and design not seen anywhere else in the world.

If you’ve ever sat under an umbrella for a long period, you know that as the sun moves, the amount of shade changes. This problem motivated designer Dougan Clarke to design his asymmetrical Tuuci Razor Shade (2002). Always tilted, this razor-thin canopy maintains maximum protection from the sun by spinning 360 degrees. Drawing from more than a decade of experience in the marine industry, Clarke knows what stands up to salty, wet environments. An expert in rigging, Clarke employs a racing cam cleat and pulley system to raise and lower the Tuuci. Easy to use and maintenance free, the stainless steel components are easily replaceable and come with a three-year limited warranty. The Razor cannot be installed through an opening in a table. Choose from either a mobile or 30″ stationary stand. As with any umbrella, it’s advisable to keep this product in the base provided and stored in the closed position. DWR is not responsible for events caused by misuse or weather. Made in U.S.A.
