Sometimes a design is so good, there’s just no use in improving it.
A most relevant and recent exemplar: the Bonfire pit from Texas-based Solo Stove, which borrows its design principles from the company’s line of compact adventure-ready stoves, only here they're a whole lot bigger and a good spot more accommodating.
What’s most striking about this thing is that somehow the singular stainless steel construction works on an aesthetic level — it’s minimalist and easy on the eyes, but not overly designed with fussy touches, making it a good fit for a variety of different settings.
Second, the doubled-walled stainless steel design means that air-intake holes are located on the top and bottom of the fire pit, which allows for even distribution of oxygen for maximum burn efficiency. That means less fire-tending, more fireside relaxing.
Best part? Absolutely no setup. Just place it down and go.
