our story & mission

Hi, this is Kevin and Bodin, co-founders of Project Solari. We are old college buds, designer and engineers, and avid outdoor chefs. For the past two years, we have been working together to create a product that embodies our shared vision of design for a brighter future.

After years building things to send to space, submerge in the sea, and save lives, Bodin and Kevin both felt that they could use their skills to create something that everyone could use. That’s why we are seeking your support for our namesake first product - Solari - The Fuel Free, Pollution Free, Portable outdoor cooker.

In 2015, After hearing about a project that Bodin was developing in sunny Italy, Kevin packed his bags to bring this new culinary device to the USA. In 2016, the founders started Project Solari Co to follow their dreams of turning an idea into a movement that can impact the world.  

Food lovers and nature enthusiasts foremost, Team Solari consists of award-winning designers, NASA engineers, inventors, artists, designers, and people from all walks of life and all over the globe who want to make a change. 

We have gone from idea to sketch, and model to prototype. All of this in an effort to build a company that makes its customers rich by providing products that make a lasting positive impact, and be a champion for non zero sum strategies.
