New product: Fire Table

Over the last year the team have mean working hard on new designs.  The result of this hard works is a new take on our existing fire table. The new table has a larger area for you to make the most of the table element of the design whilst still retaining the heat element of the product.  The social element of the fire pit has encouraged this design. The desire for outdoor entertaining and living spaces continues to grow.

To create this design we have incorporated a man made composite, which is traditionally used as exterior cladding to form the table top.  Yes we have added a new material to our traditional concrete products but we have stayed true to the Solus design principles.  The fire table is sleek, simple and functional in its design. It’s built to withstand the outdoor elements in both commercial and residential settings. These key design elements run throughout the Solus product range.

 

 

The new fire table takes on en element of the European glamour traditionally synonymous with french and Italian design.
