The Sunplace is a concept piece created by an Italian and Singaporan brings together the couple’s diverse perspectives to create a practical and inspiring BBQ tool for social gatherings. Solar-powered cooking devices are typically pretty simple; there aren’t a lot of steps needed to convert sunbeams into cook-worthy energy, just a little concentration. In the Sunplace, an adjustable fresnel lens heats the cast iron cooking surface, concentrating the sun’s energy and directing it where it needs to go.

The table was designed to be used not by a solitary “grillmaster” but by a group of individuals, all pitching in with their own tools, taking turns tending to the food in close proximity to one another. The designers want to “promote interpersonal relationships” and “recover the ritual of the banquet as a shared moment” through this unusual cooking surface, according to their website. Gloves and special protective eyewear are the required uniform for this BBQ party, although one could certainly pair those with a favorite “Kiss the cook” apron, for an extra, loving touch. + Lanzavecchia & Wai Via Fast Company Images via Angelo Becci for Lanzavecchia & Wai

Comments Off on Wilson Solar Grill Stores the Sun’s Energy for Nighttime Fuel-Free Grilling

Many of us will be firing up our grills this weekend for some well-deserved barbecue time. After all, barbecuing is one of America’s greatest past times, but it certainly isn’t one of our most environmentally friendly. Whether you prefer charcoal, wood chips or propane, grilling releases emissions and contributes to poor air quality. Up until now, solar powered grilling has required, as you might expect, the sun, which means traditional fuel-fired grills are required after sunset. But new solar technology developed by MIT professor David Wilson could bring a nighttime solar-powered grill to the market very soon; an invention also of great benefit to those in developing nations who rely on wood to cook all their food.
