 GEWOON / ORDINARY The literal meaning of “buitengewoon” is “out of the ordinary”. We make innovative new stuff, but it is ordinary at the same time: Our tools don’t need to shout: ‘look at me!’ They have to be simple, modest and honest.

Extremis in a nutshell

Westhoek, ‘West Corner’, is where Extremis (and most of its employees) was born and raised. This is the most rural part of Belgium, where people use words like ‘Mohow zeh’ to express wonder while the rest of the Belgians haven’t got a clue what they are trying to say.

HOW TO DESIGN

Extremis

A tool for togetherness

 “Don’t make anything, unless it is both necessary and useful... and if it is, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful.” This Shaker community quote is our rule number one. Our main concern is to solve problems, not just to produce beautiful objects. And if a problem has already been solved, we need to add value at some point, otherwise, it has no reason to exist. For example, Walrus has an everlasting hide, and it stores warm and cosy blankets inside the backrests. So there are no ugly covers that ruin your terrace view. Bringing comfort outside has never been so easy!

 Design is human! It’s all about the people and the interaction between them, isn’t it? According to an American study, parents and children currently only spend an average of fifteen minutes together each day... It is our mission to improve the quality of their togetherness and to keep it going (even when the glasses are empty).

PROJECT GARGANTUA 1994

Designed to fit its purpose. Every design decision has a specific reason: Selecting the right materials increases user comfort. Take a look at Gargantua. The central part of the tabletop is made of perforated steel, but the edges of the table that come into contact with the body are made of wood, which feels warmer. The robustly constructed feet are made of galvanised steel, but the seats are wooden. Once again, contact with the body determines the choice of material... Furthermore, it is no coincidence that the table legs are angled. This allows for enough space and distance to easily adjust the moveable seats to different heights.

USE IT WISELY The slats for the benches are made from the leftovers of the wooden arches from the tabletop. This means that wood wastage is kept to a minimum. 24


A quick look at Gargantua

Keep your ecological footprint to a minimum. From the very first sketch, the idea was to design products that would last. Not only technically, but also esthetically: we do not design fashionable items you will want to get rid off after only two years. A tool for togetherness must be a convenient product that creates a convivial atmosphere, that you can pass on to the next generations, including the good memories that come with it.

The desire to be sustainable influences every design and production decision. Applying quality materials ethically and wisely is top priority. We aim to find solid materials that look as good or even better as time passes, with minimal maintenance if possible: galvanised steel may not be the most beautiful material, but it is ideal for outdoor use. It is resistant to corrosion and lasts for a long time without any traces of wear.

Outdoor & indoor

 Designed for outdoor and indoor use. Indoors or outdoors, work or leisure, at a meeting or a dinner party, serious and concentrating hard or playful, inspiring fun…

Extremis’ tools for togetherness do away with all those outdated oppositions. The extremis collection works perfectly in apparently contradictory surroundings. 29

History

1994 When it all started

Extremis

à It began in a wooden garden shed that Dirk Wynants built with his father (a carpenter), grandfather and two of his brothers. The metal elements of Gargantua were supplied by his brother-in-law Karel and his company. Dirk and his father sawed tree trunks into planks themselves to make the wooden parts. Our first piece of furniture, Gargantua, was a result of Dirk’s background in carpentry and his in-laws’ knowledge of metalworking. This shed was somewhere in the depths of the Flemish countryside, in the rural Westhoek region, but the company decided to go international right from the start. The second table they ever made was sold in France.

The early years

Extempore by Arnold Merckx  Gargantua was the very first design furniture on the market that was intended for longterm outdoor use. Its refined yet robust appearance and indestructibility were in sharp contrast to what you usually found in people’s gardens back then. Of course you can’t base a brand on a picnic table; Dirk Wynants thought in his role as a marketing man and commissioned the designer Arnold Merckx to create an entire garden range. It became a series that is still seen as “pioneering” to this day, heralding the beginning of design brands that also focused on outdoor furniture.

History

Extremis

 An iconic Extremis design came about when Dirk Wynants called in Xavier Lust to help him design Picnik. To add strength to this two-seater with a table, simply consisting of a single, folded aluminium plate, the technique was applied that Lust introduced with his design for “Le Banc”.

 The Kortrijk Biennale Interieur in 2004 did not just feature Donuts, Arthur, Qrater and Woodstock. Along with these new products, Extremis came up with its first magazine. Ten years after the company had been founded, it was high time to introduce the Extremis team and everything that was going on behind the scenes. The magazine was packed with travel tales, trend predictions and the legendary column “When in West Flanders / ToeToeznt”. Given our international clientele, this led to hilarious situations at sales meetings.

Taking it a step further

From dining outdoors to lounging outdoors ďƒ&#x; Extremis has launched its first lounge furniture for a large group of up to 20 people in the form of the Behive, a contraction of bee hive and behave. Dirk Wynants found his inspiration travelling around in Morocco and Istanbul, where people recline to drink mint tea or enjoy a water pipe together. The piece radiates togetherness, and is wonderfully relaxing when you have friends over to visit.

Hopper, inspired by hops & beer fests 2010 was the year of Hopper. The hop fields around Dirk Wynants’ new home in Poperinge, the only hop-growing region in Belgium, inspired him to create a picnic table around which the pickers would have the perfect place to celebrate the end of the harvest. So what is the secret? A long row of tables with benches, a field of hops and our own beer. Need we say more?

Presenting Marina, by Fattorini + Rizzini + Partners  It was obvious that the focus lied on the Marina line in Milan 2012, as we had worked with Italian designers for the first time. The entire fair stand was built around the ‘Marina’ theme: Extremis’ products were on display in an atmosphere of sea, sand and sunshine. The name ‘Marina’ was chosen specifically to conjure up a nautical ambiance and for its international appeal. To emphasize the maritime character of the fair stand, it appealed to all five senses: visitors could taste the ice cream of ‘Gelateria Marina’ whilst smelling (something our crew really had to rack their brains over) and hearing the soothing ocean in the background.

Designer interview: Dirk Wynants

DIRK WYNANTS Extremis’ main designer and founder

Dirk Wynants founded his company Extremis in 1994. He is still the full owner and president of the board of directors, but gives priority to designing and art direction. Next to that, he is managing director of his own design studio Dirk Wynants Design Works. Dirk established Extremis for the realization of his own designs. The Gargantua garden table was his first ever Extremis product. The further development of Extremis as a company (and a brand) was actually based on the success of this first creation. Innovation, superior quality materials, a keen eye for functionality and ecology are part of the credo.

Thanks to this attitude, Extremis soon became a worldwide renowned design collection. Dirk’s designs already won many awards and so did his company for design management, general management and export. Since its establishment in 1994 designer Dirk Wynants has succeeded in getting his company a top position on the international design scene. The fact that he never follows the mainstream, but always brings innovative and progressive design, certainly contributes to this success story. Today Dirk shares his experience at the Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts, where he also runs a design studio.

61


Designer interview  : Dirk Wynants

Why did you become a designer? Do you become a designer or are you one? Whether or not you are a designer has to do with developing many skills and interests, but above all it is an attitude: never accepting that something cannot be done better.

Extremis

Which places, surroundings, cities etc. inspire you? The energy of a big city is particularly inspiring, but I couldn’t do without the peace of the countryside either. For me, it is mainly a question of finding a balance in which I can still constantly discover new things.

What do you see as the task of a designer and how do you experience the combination of entrepreneur and designer? A designer must at least have the ambition to improve the quality of life, and once again, here, it is a question of finding a balance between meaningful innovation, function, ecology, aesthetics and so on‌ and economics as well. I believe the things that have to do with entrepreneurialism have also made me a better designer. That does not make it any less difficult to combine the two.

In fashion, the major designers have also been designing for brands like H&M for years. How is this evolving in the furniture design sector? The focus on low prices really is very difficult to reconcile with sustainability. In both fashion and the furniture sector, designers are sometimes used to conceal that fact.

62


Designers

What do you still want to achieve in the future?

What are the obstacles or major challenges you experience in designing for Extremis? I mainly tend to see opportunities. Of course that is also the best definition of a problem in itself.

What is your favourite hotel, restaurant or bar? I could name lots of fantastic places, since I have the good fortune to get almost everywhere. But to be honest, my favourite hotel, restaurant and bar are simply my own home.

63

In trodu c ti on

I hope that I will become a wise man one day, and there are various aspects to that. For that to happen, of course, I will have to stay healthy and active for a long time, because I will need to gain a lot more experience before I become wise. This will also allow me to continue realising my ambition to pass knowledge on, which I feel is both an obligation for every good designer and a very enriching experience in itself that is necessary to become a wise man. My greatest fear, however, is of becoming an irritating old bore, and this is the only way to avoid it...

The Italian studio Fattorini + Rizzini + Partners (Robin Rizzini, chief designer - Lucio Quinzio Leonelli, managing partner - Bruno Fattorini, president) established and located in Milan has earned an international reputation for the unique approach to contemporary furniture design marked by an Italian sign and supported by R&D activities on materials and processes.

Abachus blueprint

Look around you at a party or reception and you will very often see guests grabbing a chair to sit down or just to lean against the 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. 111

Sailors drop the anchor when they have reached destination, a place to stay. Sitting around Anker means touching base with friends or family. Anchoring is about getting grip on what’s truly important in life, and rather disconnecting from the daily rush at work. Anker’s much more than just a tool for mooring a ship.
