the mission was to design a ultra-portable barbecue which is not only light and very packable, but also offers a substantial cooking height and safe structure. to do this, formaxiom took a whole new direction and thought beyond what the portable barbecue is today. after much exploration, the unique umbrella-like folding method was discovered. the simple, sturdy tripod footing is most suitable for uneven surfaces and the flower-petal cooking surface is not only artistic but also has the ability to fold itself into a miraculously small package.

another key feature is the unique ‘fire-hammock’, a flexible stainless-steel ring-mesh construction which is safe for any kind of solid fuel. the breathable texture allows for the fire to be ignited from underneath and can achieve a strong heat in a short amount of time. nevertheless, the tripod structure stays cool to touch.

with its slender folded form, the ‘grillo’ has numerous advantages over conventional barbecues. not only is it easier to carry and store, but is even easier to clean. by simply holding the folded structure together, users can dip the cooking surface in water and scrub with a common cleaning brush.

the unique form is purely a result of its function. it resembles the warmness typical of fire and it is the centerpiece of good times with friends.
