Walrus / Outdoor sofa

Discipline: Product

Imagine sitting outdoors in a lazy big sofa, enjoying the good weather, funky drinks, a nice rest or a good conversation: who doesn’t love that? What a shame that we have to transform that good looking sofa into a bare frame or hide it away under a cover to protect it from the elements. That’s why Extremis turned the idea of outdoor seating completely inside out. They use an extremely robust cover material to make a sleek, weatherproof and always “nice to look at” sofa. 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.
