This bread oven is part of a larger story. It is part of Ihrig’s MA Thesis, he was exploring the issue that many people don’t know where their food comes from these days.

I know he’s right because I had a boyfriend during university that had never seen a chicken in real life. We lived in the North of England for peatsake!

Ihrig resolved to design a set of tools and items that would allow someone to make a loaf of bread from start to finish.

I love this designer’s ability to make this oven huggable. Just as it was cooling down in the twilight I’d be out there in the garden clutching this oven like it was a big dog, keeping warm from its friendly radiation.

The angled curves, the stable stance, the softly turned legs, the raw finishes and the presence of fire itself all contribute to my visceral reaction to this oven.

I am a product and furniture designer who loves simple items. Here at The Product Edit is where I confess my weakness for all the beautiful products out there. I publish on a Friday.
