Some people prefer the convenience of an instant fire with no mess or
smoke. Some home associations won’t allow the burning of wood. Some
environmentalists feel propane is a cleaner option for Mother Earth.
For all these reasons, we introduce the Urbanfire. Same beautiful
design. New modern convenience. A turn of the valve and flick of the
lighter and you have a roaring fire.
The Urbanfire has a modern star burner mounted to its firebowl to
provide a perfectly dispersed flame. Covering the propane burner with
either lava rock or fire glass is a great way to disperse the flame and
add a customized touch (not included). A 10' length of flex-hose makes it easy to attach to your propane
tank (this model uses a standard 20lb propane tank like the one used for
most residential gas grills). It is also possible to order a longer
hose to store your tank further away.
The Urbanfire is manufactured from 14 gauge rolled steel. They are
hand-rolled into a sleek cone designed to both direct the heat and
provide a beautiful modern centerpiece for your outdoor space. Each one is then finished in the Modfire studio by one of our steel
artisans. Seams are welded and smoothed, the distinctive openings are
hand-formed, and the finish is applied. Each Urbanfire is unique and will have slight variations in size and
finishing. In general, they measure 22" in diameter at the base, 9" at
the top and stand 48". Average weight is about 65 lbs. This model comes in Ultra Hi-Temp Charcoal Powder-Coat (designed to
look like Natural Steel) or any of these color finishes: Avocado, Azure,
Maraschino, or Tangerine. Each one includes several layers of
high-temperature paint to protect the steel and provide a vibrant
About Modfire: Modfire is the dream of two friends from
Indiana, Brandon Williams and Marty Young. Although they grew up no more
than 20 miles apart, Brandon and Marty met for the first time when they
were living in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago in 2005. They
bonded over their similar histories growing up in small town Indiana and
shared dreams of building a business focused on beautiful design.
