Hopper picnic

Part of the Hopper collections

Award-winning design icon

Hopper is a more functional solution for a classic concept: the picnic table. The bent leg feature eliminates the awkward straddle of climbing over the benches. Aluminium or steel legs in combination with class I hardwoods ensure material longevity while the attached benches offer a clean aesthetic at all times. If you prefer a mono-material picnic table, you can opt for Hopper AA, our All Aluminium version.

Hellwood

Hellwood

Extremis Hellwood is European Ash wood that has been through purgatory to steel it against all kinds of hellish ordeals. And there are more than enough of them out there: UV rays, rain and acid rain, fluctuating humidity levels, frost, extreme heat and so on. Our preservation gives the fibres greater internal stability and increases their resistance to rotting. In this way, we obtain a type of wood that belongs in Durability Class I, just like the very best tropical wood. An attractive side-effect of the process, of course, is the wood’s dark coloring.

Choose wisely
Just like other types of wood, Hellwood will gradually become rougher and start to turn grey as a consequence of exposure to the sun and rain. Small cracks and crevices can also appear as part of this process. We strongly advise everyone to treat the furniture with our Wood Protector. This 100% natural oil controls the moisture level within the wood, which makes the planks stay stable for longer, and the layer of oil also helps to prevent spilled liquids from being absorbed, so that stains tend to stay superficial. It is best to repeat this treatment at regular intervals.

Iroko hardwood

Iroko hardwood

Iroko is an African species of tropical hardwood. The high quality allows us to make wide tabletop segments out of one piece of wood. The color and characteristics of the wood are similar to teak. Our suppliers have their own concession and guarantee to deliver only the best quality Iroko hardwood, with a clear paper trail to guarantee sustainable entrepreneurship.

Galvanized steel

Galvanized steel

Galvanization is the most durable method for protecting metal from rusting. The metal is immersed in a zinc bath which results in a protective layer. If the layer gets damaged, the metal under it will start rusting. However any damage can be touched up with zinc paint available from any DIY store. Galvanized steel has a very long life span and is perfectly recyclable if necessary.

Choose wisely
'We call it the George Clooney of coating techniques: its looks improve better with age... Our tools with galvanized surfaces are masters of camouflaging dirt, thanks to the materials rough texture. At first, galvanized pieces look very shiny, but they will gradually turn matt under the influence of sun and rain. Rain may also cause dark stains underneath the connection zones.

Structured powder coated aluminium

Structured powder coated aluminium

Powder coating is a technique of applying dry paint to a part. The powdered paint is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the object. The object is then placed in an oven and the powder particles melt and coalesce to form a continuous film. The fine textured powder coating has a high scratch resistance, perfect for intensive use.

Choose wisely
Choose white powder coating, only if you are willing to clean the surface regularly. There is nothing uglier than a dirty piece of design furniture, right? TIP: our furniture with galvanised surfaces are masters of camouflaging dirt. We also call this the 'George Clooney of coating techniques: its look improves with age...
