The wood-burning Urbanfire was Modfire's original product. Designed to provide an outdoor design element that matched their 50s Phoenix ranch house and perfectly roasted marshmallows. The design appeal has extended well beyond their mid-century backyard, winning awards such as the 2011 Dwell on Design Best Furniture and Accessory, and gracing decks from San Diego to New York City.
The Urbanfire is manufactured from 14 gauge rolled steel. They are hand-rolled into a sleek cone designed to both direct the heat and provide a beautiful modern centerpiece for your outdoor space.
Each one is then finished in the Modfire studio (in Phoenix, AZ) by one of their steel artisans. Seams are welded and smoothed, the distinctive openings are hand-formed, and the finish is applied.
This wood-burning model undergoes a bluing process to produce a beautiful patina. It then receives a high-temperature clear coat to protect it from the elements.
Each Urbanfire is unique and will have slight variations in size and finishing. In general, they measure 22" in diameter at the base, 9" at the top and stand 48". Average weight is about 65 lbs.
The Urbanfire includes a hand hammered 14" fire bowl to hold your favorite wood or composite fire logs. Modfire recommends burning "chiminea chunks" for the perfect fire every time (available at your local firewood supplier). The firebowl is removable to help with ash disposal.
