Since it was created in 1983, Stûv has focused its efforts on developing a contemporary approach to the fireplace. The simplicity and clean lines of Stûv’s first fireplaces were the signature of the company’s pure and minimalist approach, a philosophy that still prevails today.
A stove made from solid soapstone from Norsk Kleber is not just a stove, but an exclusive piece of furniture taken directly from nature. Each stone has a different structure and pattern, and no two stoves are the same. Our soapstone is grey with a light structure. Our soapstone stoves are a warming piece of art that will last for generations. Norsk Kleber is the only Norwegian producer of soapstone stoves and fireplaces.
The Original Scandinavian Design The first RAIS wood-burning stove was developed in the early 1970s, when the energy crisis hit Denmark and fireplaces were installed in many homes. A customer had forgotten to order an insert for a brick fireplace, which gave architect Bent Falk the idea of designing a free-standing wood burning stove that could be manufactured in advance and ready for installation, just like the customer wanted. And so it started!
As the winner of international design awards, the unique design of these stoves caught the eye of prominent architects and designers early on. Cesar, Pelli and Associates; James Cutler; Bone-Levine; Don Brandenburger; Turnbull and Assoc.; Robert Stern and Turner Brooks are among some who have specified and used Wittus Stoves in their work, and still do.
Acclaimed by the international press, which recognizes its innovative lines, alongside a proven technology, Stack Stoves rekindles the passion for the Italian ceramic stove, becoming a new icon of contemporary design and reinterpreting the ancient art of Castellamonte.
