UNA, which means 'one' and also means 'together', perfectly describes what UNA is all about: 

Whether you want to grill on your apartment's balcony, or your terrace... 

... or meeting with some friends on the beach, or in the park!

 

It all started with a scorched table.  

My family lives all around the world, so when my dad visited my brother Malek in Ivory Coast, they decided to have a barbecue to celebrate. Because there was no grill at hand, my father improvised on the spot and created his own Do-It-Yourself grill. The dinner was delicious, but as a result of grilling on the table, the table-top was scorched and ruined. Fortunately the story didn't end there... After the incident, my father decided to work on a solution. After many trials and errors, his prototypes became my inspiration to create UNA Grill, an elegant, smart, portable, table-top charcoal grill which can be used anytime, anywhere!

 

Family gathering in Frankfurt, Germany, during the exhibition at Ambiente 2017.

Risks and challenges

If we are successfully funded in this campaign, we will make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline.
We have already tested and functioning prototypes. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for scaling up production and manufacturing.
There are always unforeseens in production and scaling up. But we are working with a very experienced team and a manufacturer with whom we have cooperated in prototyping and product engineering for more than one year. Although this will be our first scaling up, we believe we've taken all the necessary measures to run everything smoothly and deliver to you your own UNA Grill so you can start grilling.
Let's grill!
