The easiest way to get over the winter blues is by planning an outdoor soirée. But hold on, before you get into party planning mode, it's time to deep clean your outdoor furniture! By oiling your wooden furniture after every winter, you also create a protective barrier around the wood. Therefore, the wood preserves its color and you prevent liquids and stains from penetrating the surface.
Aid for shades
Temperatures outside are rising, so it’s time for some shade so you can enjoy the day without getting sunburned. Sure, Extremis umbrellas provide relief from the summer sun, but did you know that they also provide the perfect shade to spend the days amongst the birds and the bees? Our shades are extraordinarily designed and call for some care to protect your investment over the years. Discover our umbrellas →
Creating an outdoor experience at work
With both an indoor and outdoor theater, a hilltop viewpoint, water features, indoor and roof gardens, sports facilities, and a restaurant with fresh food, AFAS sure knows how to spoil the staff. The main goal? Making sure that all 600 employees and more than 1.000 yearly apprentices feel at home, with their wellbeing as the most important aspect. The many outdoor gardens are fully equipped with Extremis furniture to offer places to eat, sit, meet, relax, rest, and take work outdoors. "Bringing together functionality, durability, and esthetics, Extremis is a great asset", explains landscape architect Bart Hoes.
Good and honest wood
It’s one thing to use natural resources such as wood, but it’s another to use good and honest wood. That’s why most of the wood that we use at Extremis is FSC®- or PEFC-certified. This means that our wood originates from sustainably-managed forests and that each step of the wood-chain is checked both on a social, ecological and economical level.
