Extremis Roadshow: OMAHA

January 16 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We’re excited to announce EXTREMIS is coming to Omaha! Check out a variety of their unique modern outdoor furniture while enjoying their very own Belgian craft beer.

ABOUT EXTREMIS: Founded in 1994, it began in a wooden garden shed that Dirk Wynants built with his father (a carpenter), grandfather and two of his brothers. The metal elements of Gargantua were supplied by his brother-in-law Karel and his company. Dirk and his father sawed tree trunks into planks themselves to make the wooden parts. Our first piece of furniture, Gargantua, was a result of Dirk’s background in carpentry and his in-laws’ knowledge of metalworking.

This shed was somewhere in the depths of the Flemish countryside, in the rural Westhoek region, but the company decided to go international right from the start. The second table they ever made was sold in France.

Now, Extremis exports iconic outdoor furniture to over 80 countries all over the world. Projects include furnishings for sports stadiums as well as museums, hotels, parks, city squares, and all kind of work spaces.

Did we mention they brew their own beer?

Stop by the event between 4 PM – 7 PM to check out some great pieces, meet some new people, and try some great brews!
