Come and Get It

Is it necessary to wait until Memorial Day to declare barbecue season open? I think not. Particularly when this extroverted design by David Rockwell is poised to roll out. The grill's lid is fully retractable, completely disappearing into the 'table' when open; this aspect of the design can be appreciated by anyone who has felt shut off from BBQ festivities when caught on the wrong side of a hulking stainless steel hood.
