The Volcano Barbecue Erupts with Aesthetic Flair and Flames

The Volcano Barbecue is certainly a hot culinary concept, dreamed up by Jinseon Yoo and Seoryeong Sharon Lee. When it's switched off, the countertop appliance might appear as an elegant decorative item rather than a bare-flamed cooker, but this is part of its appeal.

Taking the form of a deep disk, the shallow bowl holds charcoal and acts as a catch for any excess grease that might drip down into it. The sophisticated creamy tone is contrasted beautifully with the ebony black lid that functions as a surprisingly sculptural grill. Two crossing slits in the rippling material mimic the cracks in the unsettled Earth's surface. It's through these that the Volcano Barbecue emits dancing flames that are a feast for the eyes as well.
