KOEN VAN EXTERGEM
Pure, sober and detailed style
Koen Van Extergem, born in 1989, is a young Belgian designer with a pure, sober and detailed style which he further refined during his studies in product development and furniture design. Van Extergem joined the Manutti design studio in 2013 and, together with Stephane De Winter, developed a new generation of lounge furniture in the shape of the Air collection. In 2015 he designed Flame. In 2018, Manutti unveiled Koen’s latest concepts, the Duo chair and rocking chair.
This tempting lounge collection with big, comfortable cushions is a real eye-catcher. The collection comes in two versions. The version in powder coated stainless steel and with exotic Iroko wood top plate radiates a charming warmth that takes you smoothly back to the 70s. The option with aluminium top plate creates a contemporary and austere style.
The backrests of the Air collection are equipped with magnetic cushion holder strips to hold the cushions in place. The magnets in the cushions are invisible and ensure a better fixation to the backrests in any position. The (re)movable backrests of Air can be placed in two positions.
Flame is the perfect addition to your outdoor setting for an instant atmosphere of relaxation. These easy maintenance candle lights can be scattered wherever you like in the garden. The elegant lines have a stylish, 70s-inspired look. Their diffuse and discrete light provides a lounge atmosphere.
Combining both durability and airy design, Duo features pure lines. The product of traditional craftsmanship and meticulous metalwork, Duo plays the transparency card and reveals its entire frame. Offered as a chair and a rocking chair version, Duo is composed of two frames made of bent steel, connected one to the other and giving the impression of being held together by ropes.
