Look around you at a party or a reception and you will very often see guests grabbing a chair to sit down or to just lean against its backrest. So if you combine an ordinary cocktail table and this desire for support, you end up with the blueprint for Abachus: a high-top table with a real bonus. Six arms to be precise, against which you can lean comfortably. No more lugging chairs, which end up standing in the way anyway, but the ideal tool to enjoy a get-together with relatives, friends, or acquaintances having a drink.
Alea consists of a frame on wheels hidden by a polyester flowerpot cover. To move the filled flowerpot, just lift the flowerpot cover 20 cm and turn it 45Á. Now that the wheels are released, you can easily move the unit. To put it back at its original spot, just carry out the same operations in reverse order.
In times long past King Arthur gathered twelve of his best knights around the legendary ‘Round Table’ to ask them to help him bring peace and tranquility to the country. Today, this table still remains symbol of justice, equality and joy in life. Thanks to the round shape and providing extra accessibility with the rotating ‘lazy suzan’ in the middle, arthur is synonymous with functionality, encounter, communication and hospitality.
In 1998 when Extempore was designed, combining wood and aluminium was really trendsetting. Innovation was furthermore subtly present in other aspects of the range. Extempore is for instance a comprehensive and modular outdoor furniture range offering solutions for really all day-to-day functionalities such as sitting, dining, lying, relaxing, reading, etc.
Innovation is still a major characteristic of Gargantua: Even today its details are still systematically reviewed and optimised. Although this might not even be necessary: Of the thousands of tables sold over the past 17 years not a single one has been returned to Extremis presenting major faults. This is quite impressive considering that Gargantua is being used worldwide in very hot as well as very cold conditions. In fact, Gargantua's guarantee covers temperatures from -50ÁC to 70ÁC.
In streets and squares, in gardens or on balconies, positioned against an outside or a garden wall: Hopper Bench fits any location. It also offers great versatility: Its two pass through zones make it easy to get in and out of the bench. The thick tabletop with its slanted edge is an ideal backrest if you want to sit facing the other way. And if you want to sit a bit higher, you can simply sit on its tabletop.
Both opened and closed, Hopper Shade perfectly follows the lines of the Hopper table, creating of course a very aesthetically pleasing effect. But there is more to it than aesthetics. If you are familiar with the Extremis philosophy, you know that innovation is at the heart of each new design.
Hopper clearly bears resemblance to the traditional picnic tables everybody knows, but as is typical of Extremis it offers extra comfort. The four pass through zones make it easy to get in and out of Hopper without having to lift your leg over the bench or disturbing your table-companions.
This drink cooler adds the perfect finishing touch to any party, both indoors and outdoors. Icecube does not only chill the drinks and keeps them within reach; its built-in lighting unit also creates the perfect party atmosphere. Hosts don't have to wait on their guests and avoid people coming into their kitchen and looting their fridge. And the cool lighting effects get everyone in party mood.
The Inumbra parasol has been on the market for several years now and is often used together with Gargantua, although no less than eight years separate the launch of both products. Designing a parasol with a difference has in fact proved to be quite a challenge. It had to be a parasol that equalled Gargantua in functionality and beauty. A parasol that could keep the usual jumble of slats, ribs, and cables out of sight and that offered a much higher wind resistance than the average parasol. This is why Inumbra overshadows all other garden parasols.
Just as Inumbra, the 3.8-meter diameter version of Inumbrina also combines perfectly with Gargantua, with this distinction that the pole fits through the parasol hole and rests on the ground. Thanks to this pole, Inumbrina is also a perfect match for the Abachus cocktail table or any standard table with a parasol hole.
As is becoming for any Extremis creation, Kosmos also offers added functionality. With its two semicircular seats you can create a comfortable seating area for up to nine people. And thanks to the integrated table that can be lowered to seating height, you can effortlessly convert Kosmos into a comfortable lounger for seven people.
The Kosmos parasol is definitely a typical example of Extremis innovation. As the Kosmos parasol opens and closes as a fan, it is not only very easy to use, but can also be positioned next to the benches and open relatively low. This way everybody can enjoy the shade and an even stronger feeling of intimacy than Kosmos itself already created. Its flat design furthermore guarantees excellent wind resistance.
This table for two is in fact much more than just a table seating two people. Picnik was of course primarily designed as a table and bench seat combination for small outdoor spaces. But thanks to its striking looks both solid and stylized at the same time Picnik is also frequently used indoors. Combining several Picnik tables in (semi) public spaces creates an almost artistic effect. It is therefore not at all surprising that Tate Modern chose Picnik for its visitor resting spots. After having won seven design awards, it is clear that Picnik will go down in design history as a true style icon.
Qrater is a campfire dish made of weathering steel, a type of steel that can be used in the garden as well as in open spaces. It gets rusty only on the surface, leaving the rest of the material intact. Qrater can consequently stay outdoors all year round. A small hole in the middle allows drainage of rain water or ashes to a smaller dish integrated in the galvanised steel pedestal. This pedestal also prevents heat damage to the surface below Qrater, as there is no direct contact between the dish and the ground.
The bench is made of long square strips of wood. Two round holes in the seat create room for large flowerpots containing a small tree. Just as Romeo and Juliet, the trees are destined to be together without being able to ever touch each other. The bench seems to float between the trees.
Place the serpentine wherever you want. Plug your regular garden hose to the end of the stainless steel tube and your shower is ready for use. Serpentine is a garden shower with an attractive and practical design. The added value comes from the light construction which provides very easy mobility in the garden.
This space divider is ideal for creating a feeling of privacy in a garden or on a balcony without losing the sense of freedom typical for open spaces. You can however also use it indoors to adapt a room's look or arrangement entirely to your own taste. With Sticks you can create your own space over and over again.

Sticks in itself already creates a play of light and shadows, but if you opt for bases with integrated LED lighting – available for indoor and outdoor use you get truly surprising light effects. In short, Sticks is an ideal tool for stirring the end user's imagination.
Woodstock consists of a firewood rack and matching cart. You can fill the rack with a considerable amount of logs and then transport them effortlessly to where-ever you want. The rack keeps the logs neatly and beautifully stacked right where you need them, thus perfectly marrying beauty and functionality. And the cart? Why don't you also use it for transporting other heavy objects?
