About

WHAT IS THE FIREFLOWER?

The Fireflower is a portable flat-pack stainless steel fire pit you can take anywhere to enjoy the timeless tradition of gathering around a fire or preparing a meal.  The design features 3 same-sized pieces with a series of slots, allowing them to slide together to form a 3-dimensional fire pit that can be easily cleaned and packed down flat, strapped together and carried to the next spot.  The grill accessory uses the same size module making the whole kit the perfect minimal take-anywhere experience.  

 

 

THE FIREFLOWER STORY

We started Aesh Design in early 2015 to offer design in a whole new way. Our diverse office environment and relationships with local suppliers and fabricators allows us to deliver architecture and product design that is accessible and responsible.

THE AESH DESIGN TEAM
THE AESH DESIGN TEAM

During a fireside hang-out one night, we started talking fire pits - how they are clunky, ugly and tend to rust through after sitting outside all year not in use. So, being designers, we put our heads together to see if there was a better option out there. We imagined a fire pit you could take anywhere - not just for building a fire but for the full experience of preparing a meal as well. After several sketches, discussions and a late-night model cut from a Miller High Life package, we had a working concept. Months later, thanks to several working (and non-working) prototypes, we finally had a design that was innovative, modular, portable and beautiful. As the design took shape we saw that is was not just your every day fire pit but whole new kind that took 3 simple, flat, petal-shaped pieces slide together with ease to form a sculptural flower ready for the colors of the fire...a FIREFLOWER.

WHERE CAN YOU USE THE FIREFLOWER?

The innovative design for the FIREFLOWER allows the fire pit to be totally portable and used almost anywhere.  Here are some of the ways we have used it:

  • Backyard Hangouts
  • Tailgating
  • Camping
  • RVs
  • Tiny Homes
  • Overlanding
  • Canoe/Boating trips
  • Office / Restaurant patios, etc.

OUR GOAL

Our goal for this campaign is to sell 100 FIREFLOWER fire pits.  With a successful campaign under our belts we will have proven the concept and be ready to move forward with production, shipments to contributors and future sales through our website.  Our previous product design experience and the successful launch of our existing product lines prepared us well to ensure we will deliver a quality product on time.  Please visit our website to see our existing products and projects.

WE WILL SHIP ALL ORDERS BY MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER!!

We hope you will contribute because you appreciate good accessible design.  Thank you for supporting designers and small start-ups like ours!

Risks and challenges

Aesh Design has proven that we know how to design a quality product and line up the production channels needed to scale production to deliver a quality product on time. All of our methods and suppliers have been tested to ensure we are able to meet our contributors' expectations. To ensure we do not exceed our abilities we are limiting our Kickstarter to the original goal and will not extend or stretch our goals. We are completely self-funded and have built our business one step at a time to make sure each move we make is well thought through, will be a great experience for all those involved and will prove we have the expertise to tackle any hiccups in stride to maintain our commitment to our contributors.
