Recognition from Red Dot for design of Danish wood-burning stove concept: The customer decides the colour, height and a number of other details…

  • The Danish stove manufacturer RAIS A/S in Frederikshavn, in Northern Jutland, is both proud and pleased that the company's newest series has attracted attention in Europe.
    The organisation behind the internationally renowned Red Dot Design Award has now placed its seal of approval on the latest series of stoves from RAIS, Viva L Customized. What is unique about this series is that, for the first time ever, the user can truly adapt a stove to his or her needs and preferences. In short, they are co-designer.

    The Viva L concept invites the user to be co-designer: height, colour, handle, etc.

    Viva L comes in several heights, six colours, with or without side glass, with door as glass front or with steel frame, with different top panels and six handles in different designs and materials. Moreover, the user can choose automatic control of the combustion air or manual operation. This opens up for a vast number of variations.
    "With this stove, we have given the customer a real possibility to individualise the product – both visually and technically. We have achieved customising as a principle – now for stoves, too. Gaining international recognition for the design on top of that, well, that just makes us even happier", says Ann Charlotte Wellejus of RAIS.
    RAIS stoves are designed in a classic modern style and feature high quality in all parameters. Viva L is the quintessence of a RAIS stove and thus a durable product with a long service life. A result of first-class design and manufacturing.
    Since 1954, Red Dot Award has awarded its recognition to the crème de la crème of products, product designs and communication designs from its base in Essen, Germany.
