After bicycle sharing and car sharing, granny flats and other forms of shared housing, the benefits of communal outdoor spaces such as shared gardens for young and old are now coming increasingly into focus. After all, SHARING opens the door to more space, more luxury, more comfort... It is a great opportunity for Extremis, as it has already been designing innovative, contemporary outdoor furnishings as TOOLS FOR TOGETHERNESS for years!
We are all evolving towards a mentality that emphasises “sharing” instead of “waste”. For Extremis this is anything but a new direction. For Dirk Wynants, the founder and head designer of the Belgian brand, the emphasis since as far back as 1994 has been on sustainability on the one hand and togetherness and sociability for young and old on the other. Twenty years later, his business can once again boast of a pioneering role in a radically new social trend.
The great success of the Marina line, designed by Fattorini + Rizzini + Co, is certainly not telling any lies: the Extremis values are more contemporary than ever. Thus Marina has brought Extremis a few more prestigious distinctions to add to its long list of design awards, including the Henry van de Velde Label 2012, the quality label awarded by the Flemish Community and the Imm Cologne Interior Innovation Award 2013.
