Dirk Wynants founded Extremis in 1994. To date, he is still the full owner and president of the board of directors, but gives priority to designing and art direction. In addition, he is managing director of his own design studio Dirk Wynants Design Works
(founded in 2006). Next to its headquarters in Belgium, this studio also has a division in Shanghai.
Dirk established Extremis for the realization of his own design ideas. The Gargantua garden table was his first ever Extremis product. The further development of the company was actually based on the success of this first creation.
Innovation, superior quality materials, a keen eye for functionality and ecology are part of the credo.
