The Stack Stove: Cool Masonry Heater Design by Adriano

Updating the classic Scandinavian ceramic stove, also referred to as a masonry heater, Italian company Adriano Design has come up with the Stack Stove, a chic and modern yet classic and (literally) warm take on the original. In the words of the brand itself: “Stack reinterprets the ancient tradition of ceramic stoves, through a contemporary shape, with attention for the newest housing requirements and low environmental impact.” A timeless and beautiful way to warm a home, these traditional fireplaces offer hours of heat and visual hold alike. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, from slim to long, short to tall and streamlined to ultra-functional with a side ledge, the Stack stove also comes in an array of colors ranging from black, charcoal and cream to brick red and olive green. We can’t help but notice the classic Italian influence in the choice of paint hues. In fact, we’d venture to say if of-the-moment Italian carmaker Fiat were to get out of the car business and into the realm of fireplaces and other inspired home accessories, their creations would look just like this. Viva Italia!

    Dear Amy,
    thank you very much for your post on the Stack Stoves! I would like to send you some precise info on these stoves which are not derived from the Scandinavian stoves but from the Italian stoves of Castellamonte. A small village in northern Italy with an antique ceramic and stove tradition.
    These stoves are in fact produced in Castellamonte by “La Castellamonte Stufe” and the design is, as you correctly said by Adriano Design.
    Thank you very much again for your post, and do not hesitate to contact me for more info on the Stack Stoves!
