Extremis was founded in 1994. Dirk Wynants’ first brainchild was the multi-functional 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 aluminum, which is still very popular today. Although Extremis mainly focuses on the outdoor furniture market, several of its products have turned out to be perfectly at home indoors as well. Right from the start, Extremis has resolutely chosen to focus on export. Today export accounts for 78% of the total turnover. Extremis is especially popular in it's neighboring countries, as well as the United States and the Middle East. Several designs are patented proving that Extremis is not only about design but also and primarily about technological innovation.
