Plodes Studio Geometric Fire Pit
Growing up in a resourceful do-it-yourself family, John Paul Plauché learned how to design and create objects at an early age. A man with an inquisitive, artistic mind, Plauché earned a degree in architecture before starting Plodes Studio. Today, this multidisciplinary workshop provides clients with architectural, interior and product design solutions. Whether he’s working on a limited-edition piece of art or a mass-produced shelving system for Google’s offices, Plauché’s approach is about simplicity. "My work is the result of a coalescence of art, product and architectural design," says the designer. His handcrafted Geometric Fire Pit (2004) is available in a choice of two sizes and two metals – A36 low-carbon steel or Corten steel – and can be used with seasoned wood or charcoal. A pipe-shaped plug is included for preventing coals and ash from falling through the opening while allowing enough airflow to fuel the fire. For outdoor use only. Made in U.S.A.
