David Rockwell is one of America’s most acclaimed interior designers. His firm, Rockwell Group, has designed large-scale immersive environments for hotels and restaurants around the world. This is why it is somewhat surprising to hear about their latest project – a grill.
The grill, which is called the David Rockwell by Caliber Grill, is meant to be a “social grill”. While grilling is typically a social experience, most grills do not encourage friends and family to stand very close to it. The firm’s primary goal in their design was to create a disappearing grill hood. Rockwell’s engineers were able to find a solution that didn’t compromise the functionality or aesthetic of the grill.
At 60 inches wide and 30 inches deep, the American-made grill’s proportions lend itself to function as almost a table. With the metal hood tucked away, the grill is accessible from all sides, providing ample space for guests to rest their drinks. It’s a very appealing design that would look great in any environment – that is, if you’re willing to pay the $9,500 price tag. You can read more on David Rockwell’s design here.
