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 art piece 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 Firepit (2004) is available in a choice of two sizes and two metals – Corten Steel or Carbon Steel (A36) – and can be used with cut seasoned wood or charcoal. A drain plug “pipe” is included to prevent coals and ash from falling through the opening, while still allowing airflow to help fuel the fire. Made in U.S.A.
The Corten Steel Firepit is made of a metal designed to rust to a point, and then that rust becomes a protective layer.
The "A36 Steel" Firepit is made of Carbon Steel, a metal that will continue to rust and peel.
Both metals will produce runoff that will stain adjacent materials like stone and concrete. The Corten Steel will produce less of this runoff.
For outdoor use only.
Purchase the Grate Top or Wood Top to turn the Small Geometric Firepit into a grill or table, respectively. When all components are cool, stack the Wood Top on the Grate Top for extra table height.
Carbon Steel (A36) or Corten steel.
