adriano design: ceramic stackstoves

‘stack stoves’ reinterpret the ancient tradition of ceramic stoves through new contemporary shapes, as well as fitting within the latest housing requirements, with low environmental impact. the ceramic stove line offers wood burning and pellet burning fireplaces. the fireplace and the recycler of the ‘stackstove’ can reach great yields and significant smoke emission parameters.

developed by adriano design and produced by la castellamonte, the hand-made ceramic ranges preserve and updates the industrial know-how and ancient traditions of this field.

there are nine models in total: 6 ’round stack’ versions with a circular base (‘slim’, ‘long’, ‘wood’, ‘rim’, ‘side’, ‘front’) and three ‘cube stack’ versions with a square base (‘slim’, ‘long’, ‘wood’).

  • That is so cool! Love the modern look of the stoves. It’s as much an art piece as anything.
