Presented in Milan this past April, Dick Van Hoff’s Tile Stove is another fantastic Royal Tichelaar Makkum collaboration.  A concept developed to explore the possibilities of ceramic product design, the stoves are an amalgamation of contemporary tile usage, classically-detailed craftsmanship, and traditional ordainment.  Keeping in the mind the need for durability and functionality, these wood-burning stoves display an remarkable degree of care and detail for any product, let alone one with such a basic, essential home function.  As Makkum were versatile about the embellishments while reminding strict about the material and design quality, I’d recommend this stove for any cabin or small home looking for a striking yet authentic furniture piece.  If you need the warmth anyway, it might as well be well-designed!
