S’mores, stars, serene mountain views…at Modern In Denver, we love camping! And we dig it even more when we’re surrounded by well-designed gear that serves up both form and function. Here are a few of our favorite modern camping accessories for the camper who’s interested in going beyond roughing it.
The Mon Oncle from RS Barcelona is one hip summer accessory. Closed, it looks like a vintage briefcase. Open, it’s a portable tabletop grill! The best part: City dwellers can barbecue on their balconies, and it’s simple to carry to a campground. Designed by Mermelada Estudio, the Mon Oncle is sure to make you the envy of all Wash Park picnickers.
Camp folding chairs have a terrible reputation. Most are flimsy and not well built, or just aren’t anything to look at. Designers Karson and Mary Shadley decided it was time to fix this. They started with quality materials, using aluminum for the legs and military-grade axles. Stripped down to a few essential parts, the Shape Field Chair is lightweight (less than 4 pounds), simply made, and built to last.
Forget the fuel. Charge your gadgets. Support a better world. The heat from the fire generates electricity via a thermoelectric generator to power a fan creating airflow for improved combustion. Surplus electricity is sent to the USB port for charging devices.
Add water, insert a puck, and charge your device! With this nifty charger, myFC PowerTrekk, you always have access to power—no matter how far away from the electricity grid you are. Adventure trips, fishing or hunting, climbing, canoeing, or hiking are activities that most often take place in remote, undeveloped areas. The 2.0 version releases in October and enables you to even charge your tablet!
For the serious glamper, we found an oven. That’s right, you can bake outdoors with this propane Outdoor Camp Oven! Designed to be both portable and versatile, the Outdoor Camp Oven will provide you with the heat necessary to cook anything from a breakfast skillet to your favorite baked breads and cookies. The oven can reach temperatures up to 400 degrees and will easily fit a 9-by-13-inch pan so you can carry out all of your baking needs.
