Seven Urban Outdoor Fireplaces by Ak47 Studio
By admin • Jan 31, 2011
Installing an outdoor fireplace is quite trendy nowadays, and Italian company Ak47 Studio has specialized in designing and producing a collection of modern fireplaces.
Their collection, which now consists of seven models at the time of writing, features top of the line outdoor fireplaces, with new models added regularly.
“An outdoor wood fireplace, a nest in which to seek refuge, enjoying the warmth of the fire: the eccentric dance of the flames is replaced by the silent burning of the embers. A sweet warmth that comforts your guests.”
“An ideal frame for the magic of the fire. It can be arrayed in different materials to create a perfect alchemy with its surroundings. An impeccable companion of soft evening light.”
“A reserved niche, a timid opening in the ground. You hardly notice that it’s there, but when the fire is burning the Hole is animated, displaying all its charm. Once the show is over it blends again with its surroundings, and you can even cover it and walk on it.”
“Small yet great, you can dominate the daring flames that leap upwards, darting and dancing, moving continuously. You can tame them and contain them in your compact shape, a theatre where the natural performance of fire is enacted.”
“Curious and dynamic, rather mischievous, it doesn’t like to stay still: it dives into the sand, among the rocks, hides in its enclosure or rises up to be completed… A perfect combination of simplicity and efficiency.”
“Thor is tall but not very tall, it is filled from the top, to feed a fire imprisoned in a vertical cell. It can be impetuous or delicate, depending on its appetite.”
“A refuge from the breeze of spring evenings or shelter from the cold of winter afternoons. Rondo is the cradle of the fire and sweet solace: its metal holds the flames, its stone the onlookers. Volumes define it in all its majesty: you can tell that it has noble origins, no opulence but lots of grace.”
