Protect yourself from elements but keep your view with the Tuuci Hexagon (2000), which is more horizontal than traditional dome-shaped umbrellas. Dougan Clarke, a consummate sailor who spent over a decade working with sails, rigging and boat design, knows what will stand up to sun, rain, salt and wind, and he designs his shades accordingly. Hexagon is easy to use and maintain but constructed of replaceable marine-grade components to ensure a lifetime of serviceability. It features a clever cam cleat and pulley system to raise and lower the shade with ease. “I sought to redefine what was previously known as an umbrella,” says Clarke. “The resulting shade sculptures embody both form and function.” As with other shades, keep these in closed position during storms and when not in use.
