Kosmos, a fully customizable product range As its name already suggests, Kosmos is a total concept. Starting from one basic component you can create your very own universe. This basic component consists of two semi-circular seats. By adding various optional components you can put together a piece of furniture which perfectly suits your indoor or outdoor space: dining area, private patio, restaurant terrace, beach club, showroom, hotel lobby, meeting room,... Kosmos is a creation by Dirk Wynants, who drew inspiration from the maritime world and the practical advantages of a caravan table. The entire range is pervaded with Extremis’ tools-for-togetherness philosophy: You can sit cosily together around the round table enjoying the intimacy created by the low parasol. The product’s functional extras are its unique parasol and adjustable table.Unique, patent-protected parasol system The parasol is a perfect example of Dirk Wynants’ out-of-the-box thinking. It opens and closes as a fan offering several advantages: - The parasol is very straightforward to open and close. - The parasol can be installed at a limited height creating a more intimate atmosphere. - The parasol does not have any technical components obstructing the view. Magnets incorporated in the parasol’s two ribs ensure that the parasol remains open. In very windy weather the magnets get detached and the parasol closes automatically. In its open position, the parasol can withstand wind force 6. The provided parasol cover offers protection against dirt and wind. The parasol’s opening and closing mechanism is a truly innovating idea. Consequently, Dirk Wynants did not hesitate to take out a patent on it.Its adjustable table offers double functionality Kosmos can seat up to 9 people. The adjustable table (with cushion) can be lowered to the same height as the benches creating one big flat surface on which up to 7 people can relax. Two indoor and two outdoor versions The cushions are upholstered in a type of leatherette also used in marine environments. This high-tech fabric guarantees perfect seating comfort and was especially developed for outdoor use. Optionally, Kosmos can also be upgraded to a natural outdoor leather version. When Kosmos is not being used, its cushions should be protected with their protective cover. For indoor use, Kosmos is also available with fabric or natural leather cushions. Regardless of the version chosen, customers can also choose from a wide range of colours.Options to customize Kosmos: - without a table, with a fixed or an adjustable table - with or without a parasol - with or without lighting - with a protective cover, in case of outdoor use - free-standing parasol (round or square), on a foot - various parasol colours (black, taupe or white) and cushion coloursKosmos high version Building on the Kosmos design by Dirk Wynants, where the Extremis’ core values are stressed: functionality and togetherness, Extremis is offering its Kosmos high version. The extra high back rest adds to the comfort and privacy, stimulating the intimate atmosphere. The cushions are standard in synthetic leather finish, but versions in fabric, in- and outdoor leather are available.

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.
