“The design sprouted in my head after I planted my own hop field to restore the landscape to that of the traditional Belgian ‘Westhoek’ region,” states Dirk Wynants.
Flemish designer Wynants’ new Hopper picnic table from Extremis clearly bears resembles to the traditional picnic tables everybody knows, but as is typical of Extremis it offers extra comfort.
The table silhouette is inspired by the hop fields of Belgium’s “Westhoek” region, with easy entry points to get yourself seated.
Elegance isn’t exactly the main concern at a bustling beer festival, but it hasn’t stopped Wynants from improving access to the classic picnic table. No more embarrassing climbs over tablemates.
The four pass through zones make it easy to get in and out of Hopper without having to lift your leg over the bench or disturbing your table-companions.
Its slanted legs and tabletop edges are a clear reference to the hop poles that are so characteristic of the Westhoek region.
If you turn around, you can use the tabletop as a comfortable backrest.
Whether it’s relaxing with friends or family, brainstorming with colleagues or lunching with customers, the Hopper fits every scene and every occasion.
Hopper comes either with wood or aluminum.
