Dirk Wynants' Gargantua Table for Extremis

Outdoor Classic. Though this table is gargantuan, we appreciated its clever multifunctionality. Seating eight on four adjustable-height benches, Gargantua can be adjusted to better accomodate children and wheelchairs. Additionally, the table can expand to a table for twelve by setting the curved benches at equal height of the table...

The design is used primarily in large outdoor cafes and beer gardens in Europe. It was the success of the original Gargantua Garden Table (designed in 1964) that allowed designer Dirk Wynants to expand his parent company, Extremis. Extremis also designed the InUmbra umbrella in the top photo. The table is made from Jatoba hardwood, galvanised and stainless steel. Janus Et Cie is a New York distributor. • Outdoor Furniture
