GIJVERINKHOVE • Extremis has been awarded two prizes for Hopper, a Dirk Wynants design launched as recently as last October. He drew his inspiration for Hopper from by the structure of a hop field.

For balconies or public spaces in particular, Dirk Wynants has created the Hopper Bench, consisting of a single bench and a tabletop that also serves as a backrest.

Find out more about this magnificent natural product and read how Dirk is contributing to the conservation of the hop culture in his hometown of Poperinge.

swinging sticks GIJVERINKHOVE â&#x20AC;˘ Since Extremis launched the extended Sticks range, the success of Sticks keeps growing. Sticks enlightened and Sticks curved find their way all over the world. Other side of the coin: Sticks is one of the most popular products to copy. We wonder: What do copycats actually contribute to society? (D.W.)

Hip hop hurray! Hopper designer Dirk Wynants was chosen among the best of the best of 2010 for Red Dot in the category product design.

The Interior Innovation Award, which is organised by the German Design Council, gives prominence to outstanding achievements in the furnishing sector. Abachus, the innovating cocktail table won a Red Dot Award for high-quality design. The Extremis reflex: time for a Tremist! (L.M.)

eco pep talk What does sustainability actually mean? At a time when greenwashers use all kinds of arguments to try to convince us of their charitable intentions, I find it extremely difficult to communicate about sustainability. The principles I have always tried to follow since the establishment of Extremis are based on common sense and obviously imply that you cause as little damage as possible to the world around you. This should go without saying, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be the case.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My principles are based on common sense.â&#x20AC;? The market is full, even overloaded with products from which we have to choose. Before allowing yourself, as a manufacturer or a designer, to put yet another product on the market, you must make sure that it is needed and functional as well as beautiful. How well we succeed in doing so, I leave to others to judge, but in any case I try to make sure that our designs offer enough added value compared to existing products, that they are better, more beautiful, more functional, and better adapted to the new, continuously evolving needs of society. I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put a product on the market that already exists, even if it sells well. That is so incredibly boring.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put a product on the market that already exists.â&#x20AC;? The fact that we manufacture high-quality products that can stand the test of time, and that we try to be as eco-friendly as possible with respect to materials, manufacturing techniques, packaging, transport, etc. is only natural. Being eco-friendly first of all implies creating things that have a reason for existence, not merely for the novelty of it, but to really improve the quality of life, today, tomorrow and even in the distant future. If my designs have the potential of becoming future design classics, they have the ecoimpact I am after. The future will tell. Dirk Wynants

Hops have several medicinal properties: They have a relaxing effect and help to combat insomnia and are therefore often used in tea. Hops also contain phenols, which closely resemble oestrogen, a hormone manufactured naturally by a woman’s body. Hence, they are commonly used for relieving menopause symptoms. Allegedly, older beer-drinking men have more female hormones in their blood than females of the same age category. compare the hop field structure with the hopper design

Poperinge is known as the ‘Hop Capital’ of Belgium. 180 hectares of the surrounding countryside are planted with hop plants. The main varieties grown are Wye Target, Northern Brewer, Challenger, and Hallertau. Hop fields have typified the landscape since the middle ages after the decline of the cloth trade because of quarrels with neighbouring Ypres.

(to make sleep-inducing pills and to counter side effects of the menopause). Hop shoots are served in the finest restaurants from January to mid April. Because of the short period of availability and the labour-intensive culture, hop shoots are considered to be the most expensive vegetable in the world. The first kilos are generally sold by auction for as much as 999 Euros per kilo!

Poperinge still produces 75 % of the Belgian national hop harvest, which is important for a beer-producing country like Belgium. As hop gives flavour to some of Belgium’s most powerful ales, including the legendary 12degree dark tripel from the neighbouring Saint-Sixtus monastery. In June 2005, Westvleteren 12 was again highlighted as “Best Beer in the World” in a bi-annual competition on www.RateBeer.com. Hop (botanically also known as humulus lupulus) belongs to the hemp family. The plant is also used in pharmaceuticals

Some years ago, Dirk Wynants bought himself a farm in Poperinge, the Hop Capital, which is less than 20km from the Design Capital Gijverinkhove, where extremis’ headquarters are based. He immediately decided to establish an entirely new hop garden which is extremely rare, and now he’s harvested his own hops, for the second time in a row. The total hop garden area in Poperinge had been decreasing for many years, but now this seems to be changing!

tremist, the official extremis beer We have the pleasure of tasting a refreshing beer like Tremist thanks to a labour-intensive brewing process. Especially in Belgium, brewing is true craftsmanship with a strong cultural value. The purpose of brewing is to convert a starch source into a sugary liquid called wort and to convert the wort into the alcoholic beverage known as beer in a fermentation process effected by yeast. The first step, where the wort is prepared by mixing the starch source with hot water called “liquor”, is known as “mashing”. The sweet wort is put into a kettle, or “copper” and boiled. This is where Dirk’s home-

grown hops come in as a source of bitterness, flavour, and aroma. The longer the hops are boiled, the more bitterness they contribute. This explains the authentic taste of Tremist. After boiling, the hopped wort is cooled, ready for the yeast. During fermentation, the wort becomes beer in a process which requires a week to several months depending on the type of yeast and strength of the beer. Additional fermentation can take place in the bottle as is the case with Tremist. This results in a better taste and a longer shelf life. For togetherness reasons, Tremist only comes in 75 cl bottles, enough to fill 4 Tremist glasses. In Belgium, most card games require 4 players. Move the bottle gently while pouring, otherwise you will mix the second fermentation yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Yeast lovers can add this to their beer or serve it in a separate glass. Otherwise, just leave about 5 millimetres in the bottle.

extremis driving test

how drunk are you? do the calculation The amount of alcohol in the blood or the blood alcohol content (BAC) is usually expressed as a fractional percentage in terms of volume of alcohol per volume of blood in the body. A BAC of 0.5 per mille for instance means that 1 cc (= 1 millilitre) of blood contains half a milligram of pure alcohol. Under the current traffic code the alcohol level can also be determined by the breath alcohol content (BrAC). This is expressed as the number of milligrams of pure alcohol per litre of exhaled breath. A certain amount of pure alcohol does not always result in the same BAC. Pure alcohol is in fact dissolved evenly throughout the body water and the amount of body water varies from individual to individual. More corpulent people have more body water than slimmer people. Hence the same number of drinks will have a bigger effect on slimmer people. There is also a difference between men and women: As a female body contains less water per kilogram of body weight than a male body, a woman will have a higher BAC if even both have had the same number of drinks. Men

also absorb more alcohol from the stomach than women. At first sight, the formula for calculating the blood alcohol content seems quite complicated: BAC (a x 10)/(g x r) - (u â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 0.5) x (g x 0.002), in which a = number of drinks, g = body weight, r = for men 0.7 and for women 0.5, u = number of hours since the first drink. What is the pace of the alcohol breakdown in the body? The answer is both simple and straightforward: its own undisturbed pace, approximately 0.002 per mille per kilogram of body weight per hour. Although many, often individual, factors play an important role in the process, it is in general safe to apply the following rule: alcohol breaks down in the body at a pace of approximately an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half per drink. The only way to sober up is to give your body time to process the alcohol consumed. Spending time outdoors, drinking strong coffee, taking a cold shower, exercising, taking vitamins or trying other folk remedies has no effect whatsoever. Unfortunately...

good to know... healthier than water? Due to the lack of safe drinking water most people in the Middle Ages brewed their own beer at home. Growing urbanization led to the opening of commercial breweries and to the professionalization

        

A faster way to know if you are still able to drive your car is this little test: first cover your left eye, than your right eye and then look with both eyes at the extremis logos. Does the upper logo (A) look the same as: #1 > ask your partner to drive. #2 > (your partner has already left) act funny on the dancefloor and fix yourself a one-night stand. You arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that picky anymore. #3 > try to find a bed for the night, forget the one-night stand. #4 > call a taxi and ask someone for a plastic bag. #5 > try to get your emergency post-it that says DROP ME IN AN AMBULANCE, put it on your forehead right before you go and take a nap in the fountain.

finally! the link between beer and bad sex

of the beer-brewing process. As the shortage of safe drinking water was most severe in towns and cities, beer was in greatest demand in urban areas.

Everybody knows that when drinking in group you usually clink glasses with your fellow drinkers. As with many of our food traditions, the clinking of glasses traces its root to the dark Middle Ages when rivals often tried to kill each other off by poisoning their food or drink. The clinking of mugs was a way for beer to be passed back and forth between mugs to prove it was safe. A person with evil intentions could easily be singled out as he would refuse to drink the beer.

Soon each town had a few breweries. Locally brewed beer was also cheaper, as no import duties had to be paid. There were many towns and cities each with their own brewing traditions, which over time resulted in a large and diverse range of beers.

What many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is that this custom was not really widespread, but mainly used in court circles. Over time, this custom fell victim to the snobbery of the conceited courtiers, who considered clinking crystal glasses much more

stylish and elegant than clinking stone mugs. However, glasses have to be handled with greater care, so the liquid did no longer pass back and forth between glasses. But as the eyes are the mirror of the soul, people now looked deep into the eyes of their drinking partner to find out what his or her intentions were. Sleeping around was quite common in court circles and being unable or too scared to look your partner in the eye, was soon considered as a sign that you were having an affair. It goes without saying that after finding out the partner did not fancy having sex. Hence the superstition that not looking someone in the eyes while clinking means seven years of bad sex.

a new star on the rise Hopper, which made its public debut at the Interieur Design Biennale in Kortrijk, Belgium, is now presented in Milan as an extensive range. In addition to the Hopper table there is also the completely fine-tuned Hopper Shade. Familiar yet innovative Hopper is yet another casebook example of the Extremis philosophy: gathering people round a piece of

outdoor furniture which unites functionality and innovation. 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. Its slanted legs and tabletop edges are a clear reference to the hop poles that are so characteristic of the Westhoek region. If you turn around, you can use the tabletop as a comfortable backrestâ&#x20AC;Ś

colours & options Hopper is available in 4 sizes: 4, 6, 8, or 10 people. Its legs are available in powder coated aluminium (white, red, and earth colour) or in galvanised steel. Extra options: backrest and ground anchor kit.

first hoppers find new home GIJVERINKHOVE â&#x20AC;˘ On Wednesday 2nd of March 2011 a first series of Hoppers left the Extremis headquarters to find a new home. The Hoppers have found their way all over the world (Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Canada). Extremis is really proud of its latest creation and is happy that it has started to discover the world. The entire crew is convinced that the Hoppers have already offered their new owners many joyful moments outdoors and will continue to do so for many years to come.

hopper bench For balconies or public spaces in particular, Dirk Wynants has created the Hopper Bench, consisting of a single bench and a tabletop that also serves as a backrest. The bench can be put against a wall or a balcony rail. It is 68 cm wide and consequently ideally suited for narrow locations. It can also be used as a freestanding bench provided that its leg is anchored to the ground. Their various seating possibilities mean that the Hopper benches can also be used in public spaces.

rectangular shade When Dirk Wynants planted his hop garden (the first new hop garden in 25 years in the region), he probably did not imagine that it would one day lead to much more than just Tremist, Extremisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; very own beer. However, you only have to look at a hop field with its countless rows of hop vines, to see the visual resemblance they bear to the sunshade Dirk Wynants purposely designed for the Hopper table. The perfect tool for enjoying a cool moment with friends on a sunny day. Challenge While Hopper succeeds in comfortably seating four, six, eight, ten, or even more people, this purpose-designed

sunshade provides lots of refreshing shade. Designing a sunshade for a long table is one of the most daunting challenges facing any designer. By creating Hopper Shade Dirk Wynants took up the gauntlet and won the challenge. 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. This sunshade has not only been created to meet the above expectations, it also opens and closes effortlessly, does not take up extra space next to the table, and offers great wind resistance thanks to its flat surface.

Kosmos is a table-seating combination with a lounging function and can be used indoors and outdoors. It has a round shape in which you can sit or relax, with the added bonus of a table. At its lowest position and with the cushion, the table creates a completely flat surface transforming kosmos into a giant lounger. Options such as the parasol, light and dimmer transform kosmos into a real oasis of rest. Kosmos has developed into a complete range comprising: the low & high kosmos, 3- and 8seaters, round and square parasols and the ‘oris pulpit. Kosmos is available in a wide range of fabrics, leathers, and colours. www.extremis.be/en/tools/kosmos

to suit everybody’s taste Kosmos’ refined looks makes it also suitable for indoor use. In addition to the synthetic leather version, which does not only provide excellent seating comfort, but also the long lifespan typical for maritime products, the range also comprises versions with fabric and leather cushions. Other variants

are also possible: with or without a fixed or an adjustable table, with or without a parasol, with or without integrated lighting, and an ample choice of colours for the parasol and the cushions. In short, Kosmos is probably the most customizable product of the meanwhile quite extensive Extremis range.

the height of intimacy If you like very intimate settings, Kosmos high version might be just the thing for you. The extra high backrest creates a special kind of togetherness; it is not only ideal for

young people who want some privacy or for friends who like to keep things cosy, but also for efficient business meetings, peaceful working time, or any intimate conversation.

By alternating the direction of the bases, Sticks Curved can be used to create beautiful curving lines. Their organic shape transforms your interior into your personal isle of peace and calm, even if your surroundings are hectic. This new version of Sticks clearly offers a multitude of possibilities to playfully
