Tek Lumber Wood Stove by Inngage Design

Home > Winners > #46861


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tek Lumber

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wood Stove

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration came from nature and the notion that this product only works if nature is present (wood logs). From the image of lumberjack we tried to represent all this imagery into the product. Thus, this Tek Lumber allows a more natural experience in the living room, bringing the lumberjack lifestyle to all of us.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Tek Lumber, the beautiful and functional coziness. The main goal was to design a new innovative wood stove that could carry a deep meaning for the consumer. The idea behind this project was to represent through the stove the own nature of its fuel, the wood logs. Steel pipes go through a process of laser cutting and are weld together to give form to a unique piece that catches the eye and gives meaning to an everyday product.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Tek Lumber has technological features that improve its performance. The clean glass technology (air that circulates inside the stove) ensures the glasses stay clean during the stove operation. The inside in vermiculite provides durability, high heating power, low CO2 emissions and low wood consumption. Its double combustion system allows the air used for burning wood to be controlled and injected from two different areas.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2014 in Portugal and finished in July 2015, and was launched in Expobiomasa 2015 in Valladolid, Spain.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Weighting 143kg Tek Lumber is made of steel painted using high temperature paint. The feet and handle are made in wood that can be customized by the client (options: oak, beech and cherry). The main parts in steel are laser cut and welded together. The wood parts are CNC machined and joined to the steel through mechanical fixtures.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Tek Lumber is 540mm wide x 544mm deep x 1002.5mm tall.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
For this project we first start to analyze the competitors and market offer. We understood that there is some lack of narrative and emotion on a product that lives in the living room, all year. That was a problem that we should address. We them start to question and observe some consumers and soon realized that for most of them this kind of product is more than a technical product, its really an everyday product and understood not as tool but something more. So the idea of giving this product emotion and a story behind it, in this case the lumberjack story, became the major direction for ideation.

CHALLENGE:
One of the major challenges was to represent the wood logs through the main and most common material in this kind of equipment, steel. The idea of laser cut steel pipes and weld them together represented a breakthrough, allowing the final configuration of Tek Lumber.
