Re-Fire brings you back to the joy of creating fire with your own hands, this project was designed as part of Tempo Italiano, the first festival dedicated to Italian Creativity and design. Francesco Faccin is the industrial designer behind this project, through his creativity, he wanted to offer you manual tools that make you emotionally charged and extremely physical. One of the goals is to provide you with powerful sensation of self-sufficiency and independence outdoor by creating your own fire.
Tempo Italiano invited Faccin to answer the provocative message: What kind of product that reflect on design past and present, on the meaning of production today, on a return to the origins of the basic needs and actions within a system of sustainable values?
Faccin answered that question with Re-Fire. It’s a manual lighting fire kit inspired by the way primitive man creates fire. Each kit consists of 2 types of wood: hardwood and softwood, a small stainless steel tube that you can use to keep dry leaves or grass. Simply rubbed together those wood and in just seconds, the friction produces smoldering ash which can be used to light a fuse in highly inflammable dry material such as dry leaves, grass, or branches. Each component is crucial in order to be successfully create the fire, even specific type of wood selected also correspond to precise technical characteristic.
Fire was invented, not discovered, because even though it exists, you need to find a way to produce it. Starting a fire manually is a symbolic ritual that differentiates primitive man from an animal-like dimension and at the same time projected him to future phenomenal innovations. This project certainly brings back our natural instinct of survival.
Tuvie has received “Re-Fire” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
