Poêle / Wood Burning Stove


Where can one make a difference? There are plenty of people suffering in the world today and every new catastrophe seems worse than the other. Disasters are easy to find but which one should you pick? Which one is the worst? Which one can you solve?

Poêle is a wood burning stove designed for refugees in Sub-Saharan Africa. The design is minimal and efficient and aims at being strictly functional. It is made from sturdy and honest materials and is constructed to withstand the harsh conditions which constitutes the daily routine in a refugee camp.
