Ceramic Stoves Collection.
Winner of the prestigious German Design Plus Award 2011.
Selected for ADI Design Index 2011.
La Castellamonte and Adriano Design established a stimulating and creative dialogue which has given life to Stack, a revolutionary ceramic stoves line with wood burning and pellet burning fireplaces that reinterprets the archetypal object in a contemporary key. On one side, an excellent production that has been able to preserve, update and improve a handicraft and then industrial know-how of ancient tradition; on the other side, an avant-garde design that has accepted an innovation challenge with respect of the past. In this way, the Castellamonte ceramic stove enters the modern house as an amiable witness of the material culture, and therefore of the identity, of a specific italian territory.
This collaboration, born in July 2010 and made of an important along-side coming with the factory know-how, has led the two Turin designers to present an ambitious project which, thanks to design culture, introduces innovation trajectories, incredibles for what concerns the Castellamonte ceramic stoves.
Stack is modular and customizable. The flexible structure allows the “as much as one likes” composition of the stove, thus punctually meeting precise aesthetical, spatial and functional needs. The eight models on the catalogue, five “RoundStack” stoves with round base (“Slim”, “Long”, “Wood”, “Rim”, “Side”) and three “CubiStack” stoves with square base (“Slim”, “Long”, “Wood”), combine the combustion and heating modular elements with support modules that offer articulated materic, dimensional and functional solutions. Thanks to the extremely easy assembly, the stoves are furthermore customizable by adding heating modules in order to create height and power variations. Without considering the various chromatic configurations available.
It is not just a service for the Customer which will be able to arrange autonomously the various elements, answering to a more and more widespread need for individual solutions. The building modularity is the result of a sustainable approach, expressed in the rationalization of the production, storage and transport processes and in the consumption optimization, set on the Customer energetical needs and on the emissions.
Stack is ecological and gets into the modern debate concerning low impact houses as an efficient and environmentally respectful heat generator. A requirement guaranteed by the hot blast pipes heat exchanger, typical of the stoves La Castellamonte, and by the excellent performance levels reached by the wood burning and pellet burning fireplaces.
Stack is higly technological. “The technological innovation concerns every part of the Stack stoves that, with their modular structure, can respond precisely to the needs of the architectural contests in which they are inserted, by optimizing spaces, consumption and emissions”, explain Davide and Gabriele Adriano.
