Toon Dewerchin speak’s about his Chulha Low Smoke Stove project in Laos

Chulha_AirFlowThe Chulha low smoke stove is a low tech solution designed within a philanthropy project by Philips Design. This stove is a further development of the traditional cooking stove in India. During cooking on this traditional stoves, the houses are full of smoke.
The poorest families even don’t have a stove. They cook inside the house on an open fire,
using 3 stones to support a pot.

The smoke in the kitchen is causing a lot of health problems: respiration diseases like pneumonia or nose, mouth and eyes infections.

To solve this problem, Philips designed a new stove with a chimney pipe. With the Chulha you even can save up to 50% of wood comparing to the traditional way of cooking. The stove is quite simple and can be build nearly anywhere.
For the development of this stove, Philips got several awards, including a Red Dot award in 2009 and an INDEX award in 2010.
