From 17th to 22nd April, TUUCI, the outdoor parasol specialist from Miami, will be presenting its versatile outdoor collection, as well as many new products at the international furniture fair in Milan. The new and modern exhibition design juxtaposes day-and-night scenarios, inviting visitors to a summer beach and to a hip rooftop bar above the skyline. When the sun is shining, the parasols and cabanas from TUUCI will provide pleasant shade and protection from the wind. As soon as dusk falls, the new LUNA lighting system and an integrated heating system will be switched on. Both systems are easily accessed via the new innovative control panel on the mast.
The new design for the 110 m2 exhibition stand was developed by architect and designer Dick Spierenburg. The aim was to create a space that would showcase the versatility and the many different application options of TUUCI’s outdoor products. Dick Spierenburg explains the idea behind the new concept: “The design of the exhibition stand is inspired by the uniqueness of the parasols and cabanas. These products not only provide shade, but also create very special and atmospheric environments – by day and by night. This led us to the ‘Day and Night’ theme that allows us to showcase the versatile models, variants and applications and stage them as part of a holistic experience.”
TUUCI by Night
In Milan, TUUCI will be presenting the LUNA lighting system, perfect for long summer nights. The LED spots are almost invisibly integrated on top of the hub of the cantilever parasols to distribute light evenly underneath the umbrella. Thanks to a touch sensor, the LEDs can be easily dimmed or switched on or off. LUNA is available for all single and dual cantilever umbrellas from the Ocean Master MAX and Plantation MAX collections. Additionally, these models can also be fitted with 1,500 w heaters that provide pleasant warmth. With a motor that is fully integrated into the mast, opening and closing the umbrella is child’s play. A special highlight: all technical features can be controlled with the new control panel on the mast.
TUUCI by Day
During the day, the new EQUINOX double chaise longue provides a comfortable place for the whole family. Thanks to adjustable backrests, the modular design allows for side-by-side or face-to-face relaxation. The high-end frame is made of polished aluminium extrusions and is optionally available with a powder-coating or Aluma-TEAK wood look finish. For maximum comfort, additional cushions are also available. All cushions are covered with Sunbrella® fabrics. The padded daybed can also be combined with the TUUCI cantilever umbrellas that either create pleasant shade or, thanks to LUNA, cast indirect light over the whole surface.
