Fire Table

by Doug Black in Design on 06 February 2008


The brainchild of Dutch designers Ward Huting and Gerard de Hoop, the Fire Table aims to bring the physical and social warmth of a campfire into the living room. Its squat, round design looks vaguely like a UFO and would seem right at home in a mid-century American den.

Although serving the same function as your average coffee table, it features a built-in candle at its center. While casting a cozy glow around the room, it also has the utilitarian purpose of heating your pots of fondue and tea or even the occasional marshmallow.

Huting and De Hoop have a handful of other furniture designs and architecture projects, all of which can be found on their website. See a more technical rendering after the jump.
