EXTETA – what does the name stand for?

For EXTETA, it means creating and developing products that have a luxury indoor aesthetic for outdoor use.

Let's think about that - indoor aesthetics that can be used outdoors.  That is a very strong focus and driver.  So how do they deliver this extraordinary combination of ideas, designs and innovation?
We are proud to say that EXTETA definitely understand their vision.  They demonstrate this by delivering extraordinary products, with the utmost of attention to detail, with technology which is so forward thinking, with design in collaboration with Massimo Castagna that takes risks but is beautifully executed and with materials that not only offer luxury but robust properties to survive the outdoor elements.
We were fortunate to view their impressive new designs first-hand at Maison Objet in January this year.  In an incredibly BRAVE move, their stand was 90% complete with new designs, finishes and materials.  This is on the back of their substantial new collection released a year earlier.
Here are some of their latest products …
Panarea Collection - The Panarea Collection dominates every indoor/outdoor environment with refined perfection and linear shapes. The high quality fabrics and Sapelli mahogany sculptural finishes create a harmonious balance of meticulously studied details, to amaze you at every glance.  We must add that it is also extremely comfortable with their new evolutionary foam seat cushioning.

Panarea sofa

The PANAREA COLLECTION dominates every indoor/outdoor environment with refined perfection and linear shapes. The sofa's high quality fabrics and Sapelli mahogany sculptural finishes create a harmonious balance of meticulously studied details, to amaze you at every glance.  We must add that it is also extremely comfortable with their new evolutionary foam seat cushioning.

 

Panarea coffee table

The PANAREA COFFEE TABLE is the perfect solution for indoor/outdoor breaks. The sophisticated range of materials allows you to customize the piece and put your signature style in the most exclusive environments.

Check out the detailing of this design, where Massimo Castagna has left nothing to chance. The intricate detailing is what is offering this modern classic to be in your collection for generations to come.

 

Vegan leather

VEGAN NUBUCK is an excellent alternative to animal leather as vegan is obtained from recycled sources. Vegan leather is a cruelty free, natural, ecological and fully recyclable product. The touch is identical to that of natural leather and is particularly resistant to colour variations caused by UV rays. During the processing phases, it undergoes further treatments that make it hydro repellent. This makes it a garment treated to facilitate the flow of water on its surface.  There are 40 colours available.

 

Levante chord

LEVANTE: NEW CORD OPTION - The Levante mahogany structure evokes the traditional artisan loom.  Exteta's new cord is hand-woven.  This material is available in two colors (Sand and Graphite) with a composition of polyolefin fiber, resistant to UV rays and weathering, making it perfect for the outdoors. This new cord is the same price as the Extetiflex cord released last year that is available in 3 colours.

 

Jungle chair

JUNGLE COLLECTION - This design by Massimo Castagna is a call of nature. The essence of its design lies in the grain of the chosen materials. Jungle Collection gives life to a series of furnishing elements structured according to the rules of nature: dynamism, functionality and harmony. This collection is perfect for any indoor or outdoor setting especially with our New Zealand environment. Call us for all the options available to you.

 

Lapi kitchen

The LAPI KITCHEN island is where aesthetics and technology go hand in hand.  Lapi Kitchen is the result of futuristic thinking. It reinvents the concept of the outdoor kitchen thanks to large surfaces and the latest generation of materials.

The top, made of Lapitec®, becomes a large and comfortable support surface. The wide choice of  materials, which meets every need in the kitchen, completes the dynamic functionality for the Lapi Kitchen.

Lapi Kitchen doors are made of Sapelli WoodApp®, the new technology applied by EXTETA that incorporates an aluminum honeycomb panel with solid mahogany wood. A worktop with a monolithic presence that offers the possibility to accommodate every space requirement in the kitchen.

 

Levante stool

The LEVANTE STOOL is a masterpiece of Italian cabinet-making art. Entirely made of precious Sapelli mahogany, the thickness of the structure is a refined reference to the natural weaving of the trees. The ever successful dining and lounge chair was born into the evolution of a barstool. Ideal again for any indoor/outdoor design. Now available with new leather colours to compliment your project.

Roller kitchen

A new concept of kitchen, in motion. The ROLLER KITCHEN embodies the desire for outdoor freedom and informality by making every feature of the kitchen mobile. The Roller Kitchen is available in two modules, 1200 and 1800mm long. Its lightness and ability to move break from the kitchen's conceptual and aesthetic limits with elegant lines, details, and contrasts between the purity of the steel and the warmth of the wood. The practicality of this design is what sets it apart . Call us for more details about this fantastic new concept for our NZ lifestyle.

 

String pouf

STRING POUF - A manifesto to the artisan tradition. String Pouf combines the majestic elegance of a Sapelli mahogany structure with the fresh lightness of hand-woven rope. This is a piece one needs to see in person - IT IS ALL IN THE DETAIL, simply magnificent. There are two sizes available.

The GIOTTO TABLE is not one for the faint hearted, with its noble design, Giotto Table echoes timeless classicism. Its sculptural essence makes this design an iconic homage to a bygone era. Majestically in every word.
