Shape - The Slender Stove design from Varde

The Shape 2 is the smaller of the two stoves in the Shape range. As from the name you can tell the Shape Wood Burning Stove from Varde is a beautifully neat slim line stove.  The stove is compact but slender so will sit comfortably without taking up too much room in a corner or against a wall.  The doors, lid, grate, base and flue collar are all made in from a high quality cast iron. 

Fitting can be from either the top of the stove or the rear and the door handle is produced so that it is cool to touch.  The combustion chamber is ergonomically designed so that it is easy to light and clean. The Air control is easily accessed and located under the top plate and the control ensures an optimal utilisation of your wood fuel.

The Shape stove from Varde has its own built in AirBox system, which allows air to be taken from the outside directly into the firebox, rather that using air from the room.  This solution is especially suitable for the use in new low energy houses or older houses that have been re-insulated to recent standards.  It is very important for stoves to have this direct air when installed in rooms that have mechanical extraction (i.e. kitchens with extractor fans).  All that is needed is a duct to connect to the already present AirBox internal collar.

A brilliant stove! It is small and sleek but can easily rival its bigger counterparts when it comes to output and performance. And so easy to use and clean! It is a little bit expensive but if you are tight on space, this stove is perfect.
