Designer Dirk Wynants has created an all-season outdoor sofa, ‘Walrus’, for Belgian design brand Extremis with cushions made to remain outdoors.
Walrus uses “a super robust cover material to make a sleek, weatherproof and always ‘nice to look at’ sofa.” says Extremis. “An ingenious storage pouch in the back of the Walrus hides a foldout blanket and a thick cushion, to provide the softness, comfort and touch appreciated in contact with your body.”
“The parts that are permanently exposed to the elements are made of an extremely durable tarpaulin material (used for trucks) that does not absorb any water or dirt. The sofa’s bulky form ensures that water drains away quickly. Thanks to this smooth, washable material, care and maintenance are kept to a minimum.”
“Walrus saves on storage space inside the house and, more than anything, it saves you a lot of time and effort. It is a real tool for togetherness that makes spending time together as pleasant as can be, all year round!”
