The Geometric Firepit, designed by architect John Paul Plauché of Plodes Studio, gets my nomination for best portable fire pit ever.
A versatile piece that can double as a grill and, when not in use, a wood-topped table, the handcrafted Geometric Firepit available in a choice of two metals – Corten or Carbon steel. It can be used with cut seasoned wood or charcoal. Measuring 30.75-inches square and standing 14.25-inches tall, it is $1,695 (Corten steel) and $1,195 (Carbon steel) at Design Within Reach.
For more fire pit selections, see our earlier post Playing with Fire: Favorite Fire Pits and Bowls.
Above: The Geometric Firepit in Corten Steel is designed to rust to a point, and then that rust becomes a protective layer. A drain plug “pipe” is included to prevent coals and ash from falling through the opening, while still allowing airflow to help fuel the fire.
Above: An optional Geometric Firepit Grate Top ($175) is available to add a grilling capability.
Above, two photos: When not in use (and fully cooled down), the addition of the Firepit Wood Top ($160) transforms the fire pit into a table.
