If you’re lucky enough to have outdoor space in the city, our selection of new products can put a new spin on things. From a moderne-designed grill to an outdoor lamp made from a single length of rope—we’re ready to grab some of these products ourselves. Keep scrolling to check them out.

Spark Grill by Spark 

A brand-new charcoal grill from the startup Spark combines a moderne design, a proprietary brick system, and an app to easily calibrate temperature and cook time. 

Ideal for an urban outdoor living room, a collection of tables designed by Adam Tihany features aluminum frames and a glass or stonewear top, available in a variety of colors and finishes. 

Philippe Starck’s outdoor chair for Cassina finds comfort in intentionally clunky forms with wide, sanded teak arm rests, a low-profile aluminum frame, and a handwoven rope back-rest available in multiple fabrics. 

Bela is the result of London designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien setting out to create a lamp made from a single length of rope. They were inspired by both traditional handmade lanterns and the annual kite festival in Gujarat, India. 

Lightweight and stackable, Barber & Osgerby’s outdoor chairs for Emeco get their name from their material. Made of 70 percent recycled plastic bottles, 20 percent glass fiber, and 10 percent nontoxic pigment, the chairs can eventually be recycled into new ones. 

Low-slung and bulbous pots with urbane matte finishes make the perfect contrast to this sleek-stemmed and polished watering can.  

Made in one of the last terra-cotta factories in Tuscany, this new line of hand-pressed tiles comes in an unusual dark brown "espresso" color. They can be used for walls and floors both inside and out.
