25 years later: Our Gargantua
Celebrating over 25 years of outdoor memories, Anne-Marie and Stefaan's Gargantua picnic table has been a steadfast companion since 1995 and it's still going strong. In a world where products often have a short lifespan, it's refreshing to see a piece of furniture that stands the test of time.
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 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.
From tree to table
What is the most sustainable table? No table at all, of course. And while we love our customers, we don't want to see them back every five years for a new table. In our minds, this is true sustainability. For this reason, we went to the ends of the earth to find the best woods for our collection. Learn about the journey of our woods, from tree to table.
