Extremis was founded in 1994. Dirk Wynants’ first brainchild was the multifunctional garden table Gargantua, which has in the meantime become a true design classic. In less than five years time Extremis managed to secure a solid position on the international design market. Major contributor to this success was the Extempore range, introducing the combination of wood and aluminium, which is still very popular today. Although Extremis mainly focuses on the outdoor furniture market, several of its products (such as Picnik and Kosmos) have turned out to be perfectly at home indoors as well. Right from the start, Extremis has resolutely chosen to focus on export.
