Extremis’ products don’t need to shout. We want our furniture to attract people while blending seamlessly with any setting. Natural materials like wood or anodised aluminium do that. So do the right colours. Our colour professionals define the right colour range in combination with our basic, pure materials. While there’s an expected colour palette when it comes to outdoor furniture, our tools for togetherness are also used indoors — in meeting rooms, kitchens, etc. This made creating a compact yet complete selection quite a challenge. Our new range follows three different colour concepts or attitudes, which you can discover while scrolling down this page. These concepts, however, are based on the following aspects of colour selection: preservation, maintenance, environment and climate.
Choose colours that stand the test of time
Our tools are designed to last longer. That’s why our bigger, most important products don’t contain any trendy colour schemes. After all, you want a colour that can stand the test of time, and that won’t immediately feel dated. Neutral colours are often combined with wood. The wood will reveal its true personality after a while, as it starts to fade and turn silvery grey when exposed to sun and rain. Trendy colours should be added as a decorative element, for example as a cushion or something that can be replaced from time to time. You can explore them in our fabric range.
Choose colours that minimize maintenance
Materials should require as little maintenance as possible. That’s why we design and choose materials with the laziest person in mind. Within our range, however, some colours are high maintenance, and some aren’t. A white Hopper leg needs more cleaning than a black one. It is as simple as that. We added some earthy, natural colours to our range to offer more maintenance-friendly options.
Choose colours that pop out or blend in
Choose products that match the surrounding architecture, and colours that match the surrounding colour palette. Have them set the tone while silently fading into the background, outdoors and indoors.
Choose colours according to your climate
For a large part, colours determine the temperature of a piece of furniture. Darker colours will absorb the sunlight and heat up in the sun. For some climates, this could be an advantage, but in warmer regions, lighter colours will be more appropriate. A rainy and humid climate will also affect your choice of colour – or at least, it should!
