Folding Fire is a lightweight and foldable fire pit. She is made to be the perfect companion for all your adventures! Due to her compact size, she is easy to carry and can be set up within seconds!
Now and then, everyone enjoys some time around a campfire with friends or family. However, an open fire is now less and less allowed and it’s not always easy to bring a big and heavy fire pit. Therefore we designed Folding Fire.
EASY TO CARRY
EASY TO SET UP
Folding Fire is light and compact when folded, but once the fire pit is set up, it has a wide and open range for building the campfire.
EASY TO CLEAN UP
Folding Fire can be cleaned up fast once the ashes are cooled down and thrown away. The fecralloy blanket cools down within minutes, so Folding Fire can be taken home right after enjoying the campfire.
To make Folding Fire even more enjoyable, we have designed a foldable grill that can be installed on top of the fire pit within seconds. Perfect for those who enjoy a bbq as much as a campfire!
Both wood and charcoal can be used as combustibles for the fire pit. The fecralloy blanket can handle high temperatures over 1000°C/1800°F!
Folding Fire consists of a foldable frame that is made of steel tubes and aluminium corner pieces. In the frame, there’s a fire resistant blanket, made of steel fibers, that carries the fire. This blanket is flexible, very lightweight and mainly very heat-resistant.
HIGH QUALITY FECRALLOY BLANKET
Folding Fire’s fire resistant blanket has been carefully selected to make sure the fire pit is as lightweight, foldable and durable as possible.
The blanket is made of woven fecralloy, which is an alloy that consists of iron, chrome and aluminium. This material can resist temperatures up to 1100°C/2000°F
Folding Fire's fire resistant blanket is manufactured in Belgium to assure the best quality possible!
Folding Fire's grill is made of 304 stainless steel to provide the best quality for your bbq experience. It's lightweight, foldable and easy to install!
The grill can be installed by closing the fire pit until the grill fits over the knobs on the corner-pieces. Here the grill will slide into the cavity that holds it in place.
Since both the frame and the outsides of the blanket don't get warm, closing the fire pit can be done easily. Closing the fire pit also provides space between the fire and the grill.
“Folding Fire started off as a project in october 2016 during my Industrial Product Design studies in Kortrijk, Belgium. During that year I mainly focused on the concept and the working of the fire pit. By the end of June 2017, I had a first working prototype.
The year after, in 2018, I decided to continue with the project as my graduation work. During these months, the design of Folding Fire changed a lot: the fire pit became more efficient, more durable and even lighter than before. This is mainly because of the special fecralloy blanket that carries the fire.”

Risks and challenges
If Folding Fire is successfully funded, we will do everything we can to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations and logistics set up and ready to go, yet production delays and unforeseen obstacles are always a risk. In the unlikely event of any delay, we will notify all backers immediately.
Please note that the design of some parts might change slightly if we think it adds more value to the product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
