PARKIT was born around the fire. It was founded by people who believe that spending quality time outdoors, with the people we cherish most, will always allow us to experience the best of what life has to offer. This belief is at the core of everything we do. When we set out to build the ultimate outdoor chair we knew we were doing more than innovating a product line. We were building a product that would stand as a symbol, bringing people together from all walks of life, sharing their stories of adventure, and enabling our community to grow.
#EnjoyTheExploration. PARKIT exists to support those who are passionate explorers, creating community amongst nature’s greatest playgrounds. Live to explore, explore to experience, and experience to share. Our motivations will always align with our mission and we look forward to the journey ahead.
THE PARKIT PILLARS
A presence of self, presence of place and presence of time. Our foundation comes from living in the moment, focused on what is happening in the now.
The thrill of adventure is the blood that courses through our veins. We live and die by the ability to create and explore the world around us.
We all have a responsibility as humans to leave everything we come in contact with better than the way in which we found it. Especially when it comes to our Planet. That's why we're proud to be an established partner with 1% for the Planet.
We welcome those who share our adventurous spirit to join our mission and share their perspective of the world with one another. We intend to cultivate a community of explorers that can grow with one another in both character and adventure.
Each of us is a collection of stories, stories that make us uniquely different yet similar in so many ways. Through the spirit of independence, we are free to create for ourselves. These creations become the experiences that depict the stories of who we are.
As adventures, entrepreneurs, and people, we are dedicated with full determination to our goals. We fight for what we believe in and stand for what’s right. We take life and we bend it towards our desires and outcomes.
Has a severe case of the travel bug. PARKIT was founded by Steven Wilcox in the fall of 2017 with the goal of building the perfect outdoor chair.
As an avid surfer, snowboarder and all-around adventure hound, Steven's travels took him around the globe. New towns led to new people and he’d often find himself around a bonfire. On one of these many nights, it dawned on him that the products used around the fire could be dramatically improved. Chairs, specifically. They’d fall apart easily, were often uncomfortable and poorly designed with limited functionality. The coolers on some of these chairs were hard to access, lacked space for what you wanted to store and didn't hold up too well either.
In 2018, Steven began to design the ultimate camping chair. With each prototype, he and his team have field tested and refined each design to ensure that the products PARKIT builds live up to the demands of the outdoors.
