A Year-Round Barbecue for the Designer Set

July 1, 2015

Our latest object of desire: a Cor-ten steel barbecue that’s part weeknight stove, part art object.

The K60 Garden Fire & Barbecue from TOLE (The Outdoor Living Experience) was designed by iol Strategic Design, a Belgian firm typically working in specialty fields like education and health care. The team wanted to create a locally made consumer product. It is €\2,300 from Jardin Chic.

 The barbecue is made in Belgium of naval grade Cor-ten steel on the outside and stainless steel (for easy cleaning and heat resistance) on the inside. The Cor-ten will quickly oxidize outdoors, allowing it to safely stay outside all year long.

The barbecue has five cooking accessories for five different cooking methods: a grill (shown here), smoker, wok, teppanyaki (a Japanese style of flat iron grill, similar to a Spanish plancha), and raclette (a grilling device used to melt cheese; in this case, on a wooden board). The barbecue was meant to be a weeknight workhorse–fire is intended to build quickly and last for a long time.

The K60 has its own firewood storage compartment at the bottom, but iol Strategic Design managing director Francois Royen designed a separate log storage unit of equal height.
