A universe on its own
The Kosmos universe is the Swiss knife of the Extremis collection: when you have Kosmos you don't need any other furniture. This table-seat-lounge combination makes efficient use of the space available by combining functionalities such as sofa, meeting spot, dining table and lounge bed. Convert the Kosmos sofa into a lounge bed by setting the adjustable table to its lowest position and adding a cushion.
For a very intimate setting choose the high version of the Kosmos 8-seater. Its extra-high backrest creates a special kind of togetherness. The added privacy makes it perfect for efficient business meetings or quiet working time.
1/3 Fits 8 to 9 people sitting up straight
Or 3 to 4 people lying down
2/3 Turn the designer sofa into a lounge bed
By simply pushing the table down & adding a cushion
3/3 Spend an entire day in Kosmos
Talk, eat, siesta, repeat
High pressure laminate
High pressure laminate (HPL) is a flat panel based on thermosetting resins, homogeneously reinforced with wood fibres and manufactured under high pressure and at high temperatures. Its integrated surface is based on pigmented resins cured by electron beams. The modulus of elasticity and high tensile and flexural strength guarantee HPL's high impact resistance. The closed surface makes it easy to clean.
Choose a white HPL tabletop only if you are willing to clean the surface regularly.
Glossy 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. A glossy finish is obviously extremely appealing to the eye, as well as easy to clean.
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 looks improves with age...
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.
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 material's rough texture. At first, galvanized pieces look very shiny, but they will gradually turn matte under the influence of sun and rain. Rain may also cause dark stains underneath the connection zones.
How to treat galvanized steel
Sunbrella® is an acrylic fabric that is still known as the best outdoor fabric available for making cushions. The raw material is Sunbrella® solution-dyed acrylic fiber. The color pigments are locked right into the very heart of the fibers during the initial stage of the manufacturing process, before the yarn is even made Sunbrella® colors stand up to tough weather conditions and years of sun exposure.
Our Sunbrella cushions and blankets are machine washable at low temperatures. A white and a colored cushion can both get dirty, but the white one will look dirtier sooner. Do not tumble dry.
The synthetic leather used for Kosmos cushions has superior characteristics: with its 'nanoprofile' protection it can withstand even the most extreme effects of weathering and stress. This creates a much longer life cycle than conventional synthetic materials. The synthetic leather we use also is the type that is used for deck furniture on yachts and motor boats. Hence it is even able to resist the most aggressive elements such as sea water and continuous exposure to sun light.
Thanks to its 'easy to clean' characteristics, even stubborn stains on the material may be removable but a white surface will be more sensitive than a dark one, of course.
For indoor use, Kosmos is available in different colours of natural leather. Extremis has selected the very best quality and every hide is tested to meet the highest technical standards. Only top grain hides are used in the manufacture of the Kosmos upholstery. Moreover, pattern designs are mapped electronically to the hides to minimise waste!
Only for indoor use. For intensive use, such as public areas, we advise you to opt for synthetic leather.
