Indoor heaters are usually mundane and ugly electric contraptions that do little to enhance a home interior. They are great for adding some localised heat to a room but it’s often a case of hiding it away when guests come visiting. That’s why this wonderfully attractive Piet indoor stove caught my eye recently. Its designed by Swedish designer Fredrik Hyltén-Cavallius and focuses on both high functionality and aesthetic quality.
As indoor heaters go, the Piet indoor stove beats any I’ve seen before, at least in look. The stove has a brass reflector and burns not wood but ethanol fuel. This means there is no soot or smoke thereby eliminating the need for ventilation in the form of a chimney. Owing to rock wool fire insulation between the brass reflector and the white ceramic shell, the Piet stove can be placed next to walls or furniture.
As one can see from the pictures, the Piet stove is small enough to be like a portable indoor heater, in that it can be moved from room to room without much difficulty. Its attractive elliptic shape means it can be placed in a wide variety of interiors such and will compliment many different styles of decor.
