It began in a wooden garden shed that Dirk Wynants built with his father (a carpenter), grandfather and two of his brothers. The metal elements of Gargantua were supplied by his brother-in-law Karel and his company. Dirk and his father sawed tree trunks into planks themselves to make the wooden parts. Their first piece of furniture, Gargantua, was a result of Dirk’s background in carpentry and his in-laws’ knowledge of metalworking.

This shed was somewhere in the depths of the Flemish countryside, in the rural Westhoek region, but the company decided to go international right from the start. The second table they ever made was sold in France.

At the moment, the company exports to over 80 countries all over the world. Projects include furnishings for football stadiums as well as museums, hotels, offices, parks, city squares, and more.
