i met anna-ruth in Essen last year + we spent some more time together here in auckland while she studied for a semester. during her time here at uni she created a working prototype of a fireplace that cooking can take place around, stimulating + encouraging community in places where it may otherwise not be present. she designed them specifically for hut shelters on tracks, or for outside baches. such a talent! + such a cool product, with heaps of potential i reckon.
i had some fun taking some photos for anna-ruth while she observed the others test out her creation… below are some of them:
