This year, Extremis welcomes visitors to a Parisian bistro. Why Paris? Because the City of Romance has found its ultimate tool for togetherness at last with ‘Bistroo’; an extension of the Virus collection with a romantic edge.
PARIS COMES TO LIFE // Enjoy a continental breakfast or delicious hors d’oeuvres at the table. The specially designed hole in the table is the ideal place for the garçon to leave a tray of herbs and condiments. No need to worry about your fork falling through the slats of rickety tables. The Bistroo remains perfectly stable on an outdoor terrace thanks to its three cleverly-positioned legs. The fact that this ingenious new concept is quick to stack and lock away is another great benefit. But true romance need not limit itself to just one city. Why not bring a little bit of Paris into your home?
REINVENTING THE SHADE // To keep you protected from the sun at any hour of the day, Extremis launches the ‘Acacia’ parasol. You can direct this eccentric parasol towards the sun so that it can create as much shade as a larger parasol, despite its relatively small surface area. Instead of closing it, simply take off the canopy and put it away. You will be left with a sculpture inspired by the branches of the African Acacia. When the sun goes down, the integrated lighting beneath the parasol canopy creates a warm ambiance.
NO BISTRO WITHOUT A BARSTOOL // Another new piece for this year is the Tiki. A surprisingly simple, pared-down bar stool, ideal for outdoor use, with a foot rest that gives you unlimited freedom of movement. We even have a word for a whole tower of Tikis: a ‘Tikitiki’. The tower is very compact, and the stools can still be stacked even if they have the optional back rest. You can also go for the indoor version with a wooden seat.
All Extremis novelties will be available from Cult showrooms later in 2018.
