Solus Launches New Outdoor Gas Firepit Design at HDExpo 2018.

Solus Decor Launches New Gas Outdoor Firepit at HDExpo 2018

Solus are looking forward to once again showcasing our modern backyard fire pits at this year’s Hospitality Design Expo, held at the Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas.

This year we are excited to launch a new Linear fire pit. This new Solus gas firepit is 6ft in length and can be used as single height or stacked for double height. Either composition will have an impact in your outdoor space.

Solus Décor Linear Gas Firepit. Suitable for backyards or commercial spaces. Showcasing at HDExpo 2018. The new design is the result of the talented Solus team’s dedication, vision and many man hours put in to produce an innovative and contemporary design. It is unmistakably Solus.

Are you are looking to make an impact with your entrance? Or a design statement with a modern fire pit for a restaurant or hotel terrace. The Linear can provide semi-private areas when double height, or a divide areas for dining and drinks. It will also provide warmth and atmosphere but not take up valuable seating space. Made in Vancouver, Canada and shipped all over the world. Hence the Solus Linear firepit could be ideal for your restaurant, hotel or other commercial needs.

Along with the new fire pit is the metal table top.  This can convert into a drinks ring for the 36 and 48 Hemi fire pit. Solus started selling this earlier in the year and it has proved very popular for both commercial and domestic requirements. A simple disk table top is also available for the smaller 26 Hemi.

Solus Décor Hemi Gas Firebowl Firepit. With metal drinks ring. Also available as a metal table top. Shown on the terrace at Predator Ridge Resort Canada. Ideal when not used as a fire pit.

Made out of noncorrosive aluminum and stainless steel which compliments the concrete material of the fire pit. The Hemi with drinks ring provides a sculptural fire bowl design, along with somewhere for guests to put drinks. The table top turns a fire pit into a multi-use product. A modern, unusual table that also protects the gas burners when not in use.

HD Expo is the premier trade show and conference for the hospitality industry. The show has been running since 1992 and is presented by Hospitality Design magazine and today it remains at the forefront of the hospitality industry offering the newest and most innovative products.  The conference is an opportunity for those in the industry to share ideas and provide inspiration by connecting with other hospitality professionals.

On our booth, we will of course be displaying and demonstrating a selection of our best-selling fire pits and water features alongside the new additions to our collection. If you are visiting this year, please come and see us and our products on booth 1874. We look forward to meeting you.

Western Living Designers of the Year 2017

We are thrilled to announce that Solus Decor have been selected as a finalist in Western Living Magazine’s Designers of the Year 2017

Take a look at the finalists.

 

 

Take a look at our product entries for WL Designers of the Year 2017

 

Water Dome

 

 

The Water Dome

These water bowls feature polished metal domes that appear to float inside of concrete vessels. Water flows up through the center of each dome to run over the reflective surface of the hand-spun metal and then drop off the edges into the surrounding water creating sound. Like our concrete pieces, each metal dome is handmade and unique. The variations, inconsistencies and undulations characteristic of hand-spun metal create the beautiful water movement and reflections that define these water features.

The three dome sizes each have a different character as the curvature of the metal domes increases with their diameter. The Water Dome 26  has a modest curve that reads almost flat, reflecting its surroundings on its polished surface to create a pool like effect. With it’s wider surface the Water Dome 36 has a soft curve that bends and reflects light, arcing above the rim of the concrete bowl. As the largest dome the Water Dome 48 is generous and bold with a pronounced, rounded contour.

 

 

Scupper with Basin

 

 

The Scupper with Basin

An adaptation of our Scupper water bowls this version combines two concrete vessels to create a simple, self contained water feature. As with our original Scuppers, clean edged, mechanically formed metal and smooth concrete are brought to life by the liquid movement and pleasing sound of water. The Hemispherical bowl fills with water from a central hole in its base, creating a deep pool that spills out through the reflective channel of the scupper into the basin below. These water features can be used in any level location that has access to a standard electrical outlet. Appropriate for residential and commercial installation indoors and out.

 

 

Hemi with ring

 

 

The Hemi with Ring 

Expansions of the original Hemi line of Solus concrete fire pits the Ringed Hemis add a wide ringed surface to the top of our classic fire bowls to create contemporary fire tables. We designed the ring tops to respect the clean contours of the original bowls while providing a functional surface for small glasses and plates. A clean, modern reveal around the bottom edge of each ring adds visual lightness. The formal simplicity of these fire tables allow them to be used in a wide range of aesthetic settings. Available in 36″ and 48″ sizes to suit most spaces.

 

 

This year’s judging panel is made up of some exceptional names in the design industry, find out more about the panel.

 

 

The winners of each category will be announced on 31st August, thank you again to Western Living Magazine for selecting Solus Decor as a finalist
