Get inspired with Spire; an accent fire pit

Spire fire pit
Welcome Spire: the newest addition to our fire pit collection

Some of the best Solus products were designed by listening to our audience. When wind atop high-rises and near beaches was affecting our fire pits’ flame, we created the glass shield. When individuals had nowhere to put their wine glasses or plates, we created the Orbital ring. And now, we have listened again to landscape architects and designers who requested an accent fire piece that would hold its own, alone or in a series, by highlighting prominent spaces. Our answer was Spire; the latest from our fire pit collection.

Spire was pre-launched in early Fall 2013 and is now fully available for sale.  They make particularly interesting fire points on the stairways, around pools, large decks or even as centering points to an entry.


Spire is available in all twelve Solus colours.


Spire is available in both propane or natural gas and can be lit manually on the fire pit or controlled by an electronic start (wall switch, wall timer or integrated system). There is also a remote option allowing you to control it from a poolside lounge chair with a martini in hand. Talk with one of our sales reps for more info on this.


This beautiful and elegant conical fire pit flares from the bottom to the top and measures 24”h x 16” (at the base) x 20” (diameter at the top).

When it came time to name our newest innovations in fire – the Fire Cube and the Spire, we turned to our most loyal fan base: our Facebook friends. More than 250 names were submitted. The two winners received a Solus fire pit for their creativity. Thank you to everyone who shared their ideas! We had a lot of fun reviewing and naming these products.

Congratulations to the winners of the Name our fire pit contest

The purpose of this contest was to help us name the two new fire pits designed for our Fall 2013 collection, whose working names were the ‘cube’ and the ‘conical’ based on their shapes. In total, we were overjoyed with 235 entries coming in from across North America.

It was a tough task sorting through all 235 name suggestions which were quite well thought out. Although some clever ones made us giggle, it was important for us to choose a fire pit name that reflected the form and function of our two new designs.

So what did we decide?

  • Laura Rayner of Summerside, PEI (Fire cube)
  • Kelly Stewart of Surrey, BC (Spire)

Thanks to Laura Rayner, we went with the Fire cube for our cube fire pit. It seems so obvious but for our team, it wasn’t until we heard it. It was the perfect choice for our new cube as it marries form with function, which is so important for our product names.

As for our conical fire pit, we went with Spire, thanks to Kelly Stewart. We were looking for something inspirational and when we read Spire, we immediately thought of a church spire which is also conical in shape.

As thanks for helping us find the names for our newest collection, Both Kelly and Laura will be receiving their winning fire pit valued at $3,000 CAD. They will be the first people in North America to enjoy them. We hope to share pictures with our winners enjoying the Spire and Fire cube in their new homes shortly.

Fall 2013 fire pit collection:

Both the Spire and Fire cube will be available in all 12 concrete colours. The Fire cube measures 16″ x 16″ and fits perfectly into smaller spaces, making it the perfect fire pit for someone who doesn’t have a lot of space on their patio.  The Spire measures 23 3/4″ high. With 48,000 btus, they both kick out an enormous amount of heat, sure to keep everyone toasty warm in outdoor living spaces. Both the Spire and Fire cube are available with either a gas or propane burner.

The Spire and Fire cube are both set to be launched in the new year. If you have any questions regarding them, please feel free to contact us.
