TUUCI presents integrated light with touch functionality

14 sep 2017

Enjoying long nights sheltered from wind and weather under a TUUCI parasol will now be an even better experience thanks to new integrated LED spotlights. The Miami-based company has fitted almost-invisible LED lights into the hub of the cantilever models from the “Ocean Master MAX” and “Plantation MAX” ranges. The design’s special feature: with touch functionality, the light can be switched on or off by simply applying light pressure to the bottom of the hub.


Having had a place in the company’s product portfolio for many years, the “Ocean Master MAX” and “Plantation MAX” cantilever models are two of TUUCI’s flagship designs. Available with a traditional square canopy, as well as in a rectangular or octagonal shape, the parasols now come with new functionality: LED lights are integrated at the centre of the ribs, providing indirect lighting at night without compromising the looks of the design. Thanks to touch functionality, the light can be switched on or off with the wave of a hand providing enough light to read a menu or book. Next to that, there’s also a dim function by simply holding the hub. The umbrella is available in different sizes, shapes and colours. The pole comes in polished aluminium, powder-coated, or in an aluminium-reinforced Aluma TEAK wood-look finish. With their special surfaces, the umbrellas are weatherproof and protected against corrosion, even in frequently changing coastal weather conditions.
