industrialist:

Thab is a Tibetan Nomad cookstove designed to create minimal smoke as they fire it up inside their tents.

The base is surrounded by wire mesh made out of recycled wire hangers that hold delightful stones which spread the heat evenly. A sweet little pot generous in volume complete with lid and heat resistant handles sits atop the burner.

Designer: Liz To

Cooler than it looks at first glance. The idea is to fill a shipping container with nearly 200k used wire hangers that are collected from retailers, recycling bins, and more than 30k dry cleaners. Then they send the hangars to Tibet (maybe elsewhere?) to create craftsmen jobs. Also the main fuel for these fires is yak dung.
