Do you love all-day camping and the outdoors, BBQ afternoons in your dad’s backyard and ghost stories told by the fireside but fear open fire and related hazards? Then we have just the right thing for you today – the Hole Fire Pit by Italian design studio AK47 is your next best fireplace buddy that promises lots of warmth, comfort and freshly prepared grilled goodness without the imminent risks of fire spreading around your hood or campsite.

Inspired by the concept of a concealed fireplace housing with only the flames visible on the spot, Hole Fire Pit is a built-in outdoor wood inglenook that consists of a steel bowl sizing 135 centimeters in diameter and 20 centimeters in height that goes into a discrete opening in the ground and a closing disk which allows for simple food transfer, retains fire residue and keeps the spot safe when not in use. Easy to install literally on any type of outdoor surface, the Hole Fire Pit comes in a ready-to-assemble kit which requires minimum time and effort to set up, and you can also order the accompanying stainless steel grill measuring 94 centimeters in diameter for some on-site barbecuing and grilling in your backyard or at your favorite camping spot.
