For the coming outdoor season, Extremis is bringing out two innovative togetherness designs: the two-in-one Sol+Luna sun lounger and sofa, and the Virus picnic table, available for both city slickers and garden lovers. Just waiting for those cosy warm days and evenings!
The Sol+Luna is a match made in heaven for those who are looking for a combination of functionality and comfort. Does a lazy day in the sun, a peaceful siesta or a relaxing break with a book sound like music to your ears? And wouldn’t you love to round off the day with an unexpected visit from your best friend as the sun is going down? Designer Dirk Wynants of Extremis has created the inventive ‘tool’ for this dream scenario. The new Sol+Luna is two things in one: a recliner that can be turned into a comfortable sofa. A piece of furniture that has a function for both day and evening.
The sun bed has a handy shelf to put things on at the side, which also makes a perfect backrest: just throw on a couple of cushions and you instantly create a comfortable sofa for three people. The compact, adjustable shade also provides light, and can be fitted to the sofa with a simple plug-in system. We have also provided extra little tables with the same plug-in system. So, bring on the snacks!
The Extremis single recliner is also a three-seater sofa, and a set of two recliners becomes a suite for six people. Sol+Luna, or sun and moon in Spanish, is a name that reflects the double purpose of this new piece of furniture, which can be used around the clock from your morning dip to the pool party after hours.
The Sol+Luna range is available in two different styles. The southern version – Australis – has been designed for those who like a clean, architectural style. The northern version – Borealis – has a somewhat more organic look. Extra options include the recliner cushions, back cushions, towel holder and even a little locker to store your precious items while you are swimming a few lengths in peace. With extra tables, shades and light, Extremis makes sure you have absolutely everything you need!
For the 2017 outdoor season, Extremis is also introducing Virus, the picnic table in different shapes that bring life and dynamism to even the most sterile areas. Dirk Wynants has designed different versions with one identical sitting frame for two to five persons. The sleek, but at the same time also playful design makes it possible to fill a space in an attractive way with a mix of small to medium-sized lounge suites, without sacrificing uniformity.
