About



FOCANO is the latest in portable campfire technology, featuring a blend of beauty and convenience. 

The FOCANO fire pit is lightweight, fully portable and easily assembled. Its unique see-through design features 534 holes in its sides that allow the campfire light to shine through—as well as providing a constant flow of oxygen to keep your fire going strong! FOCANO will make your barbecues and campouts easy and beautiful.

FOCANO offers various features:

  • Light, Thin & High volume: weighs 7.7 lbs (3.5 kg), just 2" (5 cm) thick when folded. FOCANO holds 44 lbs (20 kg) of wood—1.5 to 2 times bigger than its competitors!
  • Convenient accessories & Fast assembly: only 30 seconds to set up FOCANO! A grill grate and carry bag are also included!
  • Easily get your fire started: a fuel rack combines with FOCANO’s striking 6-sided design to instantly stack wood into a pyramid for cozy lighting!
  • Durable & Easy to clean: made of stainless steel, FOCANO is heated-resistant and able to bear long burning time. As for the cleanup, just  the use of water is enough! 

Fire pits have always allowed campers to sit around a campfire comfortably, but older designs only showed the top of the flames: it was impossible to see the whole fire. Clearly something was missing, so we developed FOCANO to create a 360 degree campfire experience.

FOCANO stands out from the competition, combining beauty and science through the unique addition of 534 triangular holes to its six stainless-steel plates. This means that it contains the fire while the holes allow campers to safely enjoy the flames from any angle.


Fine Craft Engineering

The multi-stamping processes are further complex than those of regular fire pits.

To maintain the durability and foldability of the fire pit, FOCANO is manufactured with three stamping processes: forming → punching 1 → punching 2. (As showed below) But in general case, it only takes once in manufacturing regular fire pits.  

And why triangles? Their edge distance allows for a more efficient use of the area on FOCANO’s stainless-steel plates so that every inch is put to use, while enhancing its structural strength and giving it a stylish look. 

Plus, the holes help air circulation and heat retention, making the fire burn more brightly.

Foldable into the thickness of two pieces of toast and expandable into a fire pit that holds 44 pounds of wood, FOCANO solves your problems of storage, portability, fire-starting and fuel capacity all at once. Welcome to an elegant, hassle-free camping experience!

 FIRST:One Small Bag

As you stuff your car with camping gear, don’t forget your foldable fire pit! FOCANO and all its accessories fit into its custom carry bag, with the whole thing weighing in at only 7.7 lbs/3.5 kg. At 2"/5 cm thick and 13.8”/35 cm tall, it doesn’t even need truck space: just slide it under your car seat!

Lightweight and portable, you can carry FOCANO in just one hand to comfortably enjoy a campfire on the beach, in the mountains, and in your own backyard.


SECOND:Ready, Set, FOCANO!

FOCANO's six triangular stainless-steel plates, produced from modern manufacturing processes, create an effective space for burning: unfold the fire pit and lock the top and bottom together, and FOCANO will form an octahedral space. This special structure means that wood which is casually piled in will instantly stack up into a pyramid that burns easily, without the use of additional equipment.

From assembling the fire pit to stacking the fuel, every step is easy to master, even for a child—not that you would necessarily want them to!


THIRD:Just Lay Back and Chill

We can all agree that keeping a fire going evenly is the worst part of barbecue or campout. Is it going to get hot enough across all parts of the grill? Will it lose oxygen randomly and go out? Does your old fire pit fall short on fuel capacity?

Don’t worry—FOCANO is here to help.

FOCANO's see-through design helps both air circulation and heat retention, not to mention making it easy to see how fast it’s burning down. But then again, FOCANO can hold up to 44 lbs/20 kg of wood, so it will be a long time before the fun runs out! Plus, by placing the included fuel rack on the inside, you can raise it to give the fuel more oxygen, boosting its burning efficiency.



LAST:Picnic-Ready

Feeling hungry, or looking for a warm drink? Use the custom triangular grill grate to cook everything from meat, marshmallow and sausages to hot cocoa and mulled wine, making your camping experience complete. 

 One FOCANO, One Bag 

Folding fire pit+Stand+Ash pan+Carry bag+Fuel rack+Grill grate = FOCANO

FOCANO and all its gear are made for you to keep together in one package. No more struggling to find missing equipment—just bring your matches and go! 

Eco-Friendly Campfires

We at FOCANO know that every camper is a lover of nature, so we designed each detail of our fire pit with the environment in mind. 

For instance, the see-through design of the fuel rack and the body enhances air circulation for more thorough combustion and less carbon monoxide. The package also includes an ash pan to properly collect falling cinders, and the triangular stand on the bottom keeps it safely off the ground to keep your campfire from spreading.

We hope that after each wonderful camping night, FOCANO will leave no trace in the environment—only beautiful memories in your mind!

Fits in Every Tiny Space

We have reduced FOCANO’s thickness to under 2” when folded, so that campers can place it in their homes, the trunks of their cars, or in any tiny space.

Setup in Only 30 Seconds

FOCANO has six individual pieces. Stacking them up one by one, you can assemble the fire pit in 30 seconds. Fuel rack is optional, it can promotes airflow when putting both wood and charcoal in.

From its appearance, foldability, thinness, portability and large capacity, FOCANO has all the essentials for your camping and barbecue needs. FOCANO: You light it up, I keep it up!

The R&D team of FOCANO has been rated as a Certified B Corporation, which means that our product design and production processes conform to the highest standards for corporate social responsibility regarding corporate governance, employee care, environmental friendliness, community care, and client impact. We also utilize our influence to continually promote our corporate philosophies of social inclusiveness and shared sustainability.

FOCANO was nominated and entered the final run of Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards 2018—the largest trade show for outdoor gear in the U.S.—with our excellence in product concept, design, functionality, originality, sustainability and impact. 



FOCANO is a product of Teamsworld Innovation Inc., from Taiwan. We have always strived to be an innovator in the lifestyle industry. When we discovered that for most fire pits on the market, having a large capacity meant being bulky, we began extensive research into the demands for recreational campfire equipment. This led us to develop a fire pit design offering both style and functionality.

FOCANO has been in development for more than two years, from research, to design, to procuring the stainless-steel. FOCANO is a six-piece planar foldable system that addresses both the spatial storage requirement and functionality of fire pits. When not in use, users can store the small, lightweight fire pit in their car. FOCANO's see-through design also allows campers to directly feel and appreciate the fire. With the concept development story above, FOCANO was thus born!

Risks and challenges

There are many challenges in the FOCANO production process, and this project is our first Kickstarter campaign. Nonetheless, during FOCANO’s 2-year development process, we have conducted multiple tests on the forming, punching, assembly, combustion, materials, and cleaning of FOCANO. Details of the shafts and locks have also been improved to enhance performance. The current FOCANO prototype has reached nearly 100% of its final form.

All preparations for production are ready. We are about to enter the intense tooling and mass production stages. After the crowdfunding campaign, we will commit the current FOCANO prototype to factory tooling, which will take an estimated two months’ time, followed by mass production. Because of the complexity involved in FOCANO's design, the production process will take three months, during which time we will meticulously perfect each unit that will be delivered to our backers.

If difficulties arise during any of the processes described above, that will delay shipping. If that occurs, or if any processes are accelerated during the crowdfunding stage, the FOCANO team will notify all backers on the principle of transparency. We will also, to the best of our abilities, address any of your questions and suggestions.

With our utmost sincerity, we thank each of you—our backers—for your support.
