Hopper clearly bears resemblance to the traditional picnic tables everybody knows, but as is typical of Extremis it offers extra comfort. The four pass through zones make it easy to get in and out of Hopper without having to lift your leg over the bench or disturbing your table-companions. Its slanted legs and tabletop edges are a clear reference to the hop poles that are so characteristic of the Westhoek region. If you turn around, you can use the tabletop as a comfortable backrest.
At a lively beer festival, elegance is almost certainly not the main concern, but this hasn’t stopped designer Dirk Wynants from trying to improve access to the classic picnic table. He has incorporated more space at the sides to get in. No more embarrassing climbing over tablemates to find a place to sit.
Hopper Bench is available in two sizes, seating three or four people. The galvanised steel legs are perfect for public spaces thanks to their extreme durability.
Hopper bench needs a floor fastening or needs to be mounted on stabilizing supports. Use suitable bolts or screws from a DIY store (depending on the material your terrace is made of) and combine them with the floor-fastening set if you don't want to move it around in the future. Otherwise, go for steel plates as supports for your bench.
