Siirretty: A COUNTER CURRENT STOVE

A GROUNDBRAKING INVENTION OF ITS TIME

As chilly winters and constant wars were trying the Nordic countries, the timber reserves were running low. An architect called Carl Johan Cronstedt and field marshal Fabian Wrede received a mission from His Majesty Gustav III of Sweden to design a heating technically advanced oven. A breakthrough was made in 1767, when a counter-current stove was invented. From its firebox the smoke rises up, splitting up at the front to both sides and down again. From back down the smoke rises up again through both sides and up above comes together again and rises to the chimney. The heat and warmth moved and was stored effectively now, revolutionizing the heating technology of the time. This brilliant invention spreaded through the transmission of its drawings.

Lighting up in the morning and another in the evening, and the warmth and comfort of the salon was guaranteed.
