Fire Table


The brainchild of Dutch designers Ward Huting and Gerard de Hoop, the Fire Table aims to bring the physical and social warmth of a campfire into the living room. Its squat, round design looks vaguely like a UFO and would seem right at home in a mid-century American den.

Although serving the same function as your average coffee table, it features a built-in candle at its center. While casting a cozy glow around the room, it also has the utilitarian purpose of heating your pots of fondue and tea or even the occasional marshmallow.

Huting and De Hoop have a handful of other furniture designs and architecture projects, all of which can be found on their website. See a more technical rendering after the jump.
