Philippe Starck Designs
Wood-burning Stove – in France

Friday, September 30, 2016

French designer Philippe Starck has created a wood-burning stove for heating brand Speeta, a French company, that can be customized by combining different modules.

In addition to the heating element, functions can be added to the stove by installing extra cube-shaped units. A stone-filled module stores warmth and gradually disperses it once the stove has been turned off.

Storage units offer room for logs, books or other items, and modules can be stacked on top of one another, or placed side-by-side. Customization is therefore at the heart of the Speetbox by Starck concept, according to the company.

Its flexibility allows each person to adjust the energy equipment in their home to their needs and desires. Through its flexibility and affordable price, the collection is also ideal for first-time buyers.

Speetbox can work with or without electricity, and has an airtight wood stove with a steel hearth. According to Speeta, it has dramatically reduced emissions.

The stove is accompanied by a set of accessories including a minimal shovel, tongs and brush, and is operated using an app that controls lighting, temperature, hot air distribution and speed of combustion.

Starck, one of the world’s most prolific designers, has designed a wide array of products in recent years, from recyclable flip-flops to voice-controlled radiator valves to both restaurants and hotels around the world. He’s also the latest designer to venture into the fragrance industry, with a trio of eau de toilettes released under his new perfume label, Starck Paris.

There has been no mention of bringing the product to North America.
