Marina Combination

FATTORINI+RIZZINI+PARTNERS | 2012

A combination of chairs and benches is what makes this range really unique. It enables you to create a different picnic setting on every patio. You can have a frequent use zone with Captain’s chairs that offer high comfort, while you can still have plenty of visitors over, offering seats on the benches, let’s say, the budget zone. For Extremis it was quite a challenge to be able to create a design that is accessible to large numbers of people, without having to discard the functional and design aspect. The fact that one does not need to buy all the chairs separately because of the benches is a money saver. Fattorini+Rizzini+Partners also designed the separate chairs which, as the name suggests, are based on a captain’s chair, staying true to the naval theme. The composite of glass fibre and polyester is a solid, durable and contemporary material that feels just like wood. However, it is considerably less sensitive to temperature changes and humidity. The good quality of the material means that the design is relatively lightweight. With this piece of furniture the possibilities are endless, but we have listed our favourites below. Check out the dimensions.

Available in multiple sizes.

Extremis – almost twenty years of tools for togetherness

It was purely and simply out of love that at the end of the eighties Dirk Wynants, an interior designer and son of a furniture maker, moved from his native region north of Antwerp to the other side of the country. After having settled down in Gijverinkhove, in the most rural part of West Flanders, his passion for design pushed him to create Extremis, a furniture range offering so much more than just furniture. Extremis is a brand with a vision. A brand with a mission. A brand that breathes innovation. Since 1994…

Innovate or die“Create nothing unless it is both necessary and functional. And if this is the case, do not hesitate to make it beautiful.” This proposition, which Dirk Wynants once read at the Stockholm Design Center in Sweden, perfectly describes Extremis’ philosophy. Extremis does not aspire to simply put beautiful outdoor furniture on the market. Extremis makes “tools” that make life better. More pleasant. These tools must always be functional. And above all always better than the products already available. In Extremis’ designs every single aspect is the fruit of careful consideration. And each design is always a feast for the eye.

Tu’g vo thope te zi’nExtremis has a mission: combining intelligent design based on Flemish common sense with our famous Burgundian lifestyle. How? By creating a whole range of extraordinary outdoor furniture uniting exceptional functionality and timeless design. The result? Much more than just a furniture range: a lifestyle that brings people together. That lets them enjoy life together. The slogan Tools for togetherness (or Tu’g vo thope te zi’n in the local dialect) has not been chosen randomly.

Focus on sustainabilityLong before concepts such as sustainable businesses and corporate responsibility became widespread, Extremis was already paying a lot of attention to the three P’s. It does not matter whether you are dealing with personnel, neighbours, customers, or dealers, they are all people who ensure that Extremis can keep on doing what it is good at. Reducing transport volumes, using sustainably managed raw materials, making optimum use of raw materials, or observing quality standards guaranteeing that products last a lifetime: For Extremis it is essential that our planet remains liveable for centuries to come. And profit? Of course. Only a profitable company can achieve these goals.

Let the cobbler…A bit stubborn: that is probably typical of the people from the Westhoek region. Or the Kempen region. Extremis too has always done things its own way. The leitmotiv? Stick to what you are good at. In Extremis’ case: creating, looking for new ideas, designing, developing new products, and making prototypes. Extremis has deliberately decided not to invest in a production department: Machinery should never determine what the next design will look like. It should only depend on the innovative idea. This approach gives Extremis the freedom to choose the best materials and the most efficient suppliers for each design.

For Extremis, assembly, quality control, and distribution are also of major importance. Only by paying the necessary attention to these stages, the products reach the end customer in optimum conditions. Using a well-organised network of dealers who do not just sell products, but completely agree with and support the brand’s philosophy. And that cobbler? In Extremis’ case, he sticks to his last: designing outdoor furniture. Right from the start, with all the technical challenges this choice implies. And with all the knowhow built up over the years.
