Meet the "Paranoise" line of Extremis, an exciting new combination of products with acoustic features and an outdoor look and feel.
The Paranoise line
Innovation & design
Innovation and design have always been the main drivers since Dirk Wynants started Extremis in 1994. Introducing this focus in the undervalued domain of the outdoors was new at that time. As a next step, breaking down the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, preferably in both ways, completely fits the company philosophy.
In today’s world it has become clear that the inborn need for contact with nature has to be fulfilled in order to cope with the stress caused by our jobs requiring increasingly higher levels of performance. This importance of biophilic design is translated into making outdoor spaces available for quality time at work, no less than at home and between both. Now it is time to take that outdoor feeling inside, to be able to enjoy it year-round.

When protection from the sun is not needed, why not provide some protection from noise instead? To solve this, Extremis altered its parasol lines to the new “paranoise” solutions, using sound-absorbing fabrics that meet all the fire regulation requirements. When Acacia is launched, “paranoise” versions of Inumbra, Kosmos and Hopper shades will soon follow.
