Founded on the belief that outdoor tools should be both durable and a pleasure to use, the WG Grill strives to meet both expectations. Consisting of two parts, it redefines the cooking experience in both backyard and backcountry. The collapsible frame is constructed of stainless steel to endure the intensity of fire and develops a beautiful patina over time. A sushi mat inspired the rolling cooking surface, and allows for height adjustability to achieve the perfect grilling position. Fit into a carry case that is water bottle sized and weighing about 1kg, it preserves packing space for food.

Hofer Studio was founded by Joseph Hofer, a multiple award-winning Canadian industrial designer. The studio approaches design projects with the user at the forefront, innovating the experience, and building with quality to celebrate and communicate a product's purpose and value. Collaborating with a number of entrepreneurial ventures focused on the redefining of products based on technology, business, and experience innovations, the studio recently won a European Product Design Award for Pair Knife.
