At Extremis, we believe that true beauty should be capable of withstanding the rigours of time and exposure to the elements. Not to mention the fact that you probably have better things to do with your time than cleaning and maintenance. That’s why durability is built into the aesthetics of each and every creation. The results are authentic tools for togetherness that last generations.
Making furniture that lasts starts with choosing the right materials, like wood and galvanised steel.
Our wood is alive
Wood is a living material. In spite of the superior quality provided by the species we use, it constantly adapts to changes in temperature and humidity. In the same way your teeth won’t stay white without brushing, wood won’t remain perfectly smooth without any maintenance. Exposure to sun and rain will gradually change its colour to silvery grey, and roughen the surface.
When delivered, the wooden parts of our products are untreated. Exposure to sun and rain will gradually change their colour to silvery grey, and also roughen the surface. We strongly recommend that you treat your wood regularly with wood oil to protect it from stains and to slow down the roughening process. Along with these downsides, our wood comes with great characteristics: the production of wooden parts consumes 60 times less energy than steel parts, it’s extremely durable - by sanding and oiling regularly, our tables easily reach the age of 20, you can barely see when there’s surface dust or dirt, and the wood looks warm and feels comfortable.
