THINKING

Inside our
toolbox...

Some of the tools you'll find us using as we integrate nature into architecture.

Boundaries:

Edges are inherent in nature.
Inside, outside. Chaos, control.
Light, dark. Organic, structured.
Hard, soft. Wet, dry.

Space:

Spaces vary widely in nature.
Large open spaces to inspire.
Small closed spaces to cocoon.
Interlinked spaces to cohabit.

Sightlines:

Nature provides endless viewpoints.
From wide long distance vistas.
Through framed views.
To surprise close-up peeks.

City
forest
ideas

We want to create spaces which are more organic and more beneficial to the human experience.

Light:

Sunlight, bright, warm and life giving.
Shadows moving, changing, dancing.
Moonlight, cold, crisp, subtle.
And firelight, enigmatic, energetic.

Air:

Air is more than giving us oxygen.
The wind on our faces.
The steam rising from a hot pool.
Our breath, frozen for a moment.

Green:

Plants underpin ecosystems.
Energy-giving to herbivores.
Filtering, purifying & oxygenating.
And beautifying the world.

Green thinking

We create designs, each carefully adapted to the characteristics of each specific location, which help residents connect with nature.

Materials:

Natural materials exemplify nature.
Wood. Colour, tone, warmth, smell.
Stone. Texture, strength, solidity.
Metals. Minerals. Glass.

Shapes:

Nature has amazing shapes.
Organic irregular shapes.
Fibonacci curves and circles.
Rectinlinear and crystalline forms.

Senses:

Sight. Colours, forms, contrasts.
Sound. Soothing, discordant, subtle.
Smell. Grass, woodland, scent, surf.
Touch. Rough, smooth, undulating.

The irrepressible Dirk Wynants, founder and "Big Boss" (his quote!) of Extremis, joined us in our Milan showroom to share his unique take on designing furniture with architects and designers who attended our "Nature!" seminar. Here he is interviewed by our founder and "Serial Misfit" (his quote!) Dr Pierre Wilter...
