Concept & Forme resulted from the meeting in 1983 of two men with a common passion for beautiful objects : Benoît Lafontaine and Gérard Pitance.
Together, they finalised the first wood stove designed by Gérard Pitance, the current Stûv 60. Component manufacture was entrusted to sub-contractors and the two associates, with a light infrastructure, took care of the assembly and installation. Their early days were laborious but encouraging.
Progressively, Concept & Forme acquired production tools and developed new models but also diversifies its activities in other sectors as a consultancy office for various industrial partners.
Today, Concept & Formes can boast a state of the art production site with some 132 staff and a yearly production of some 14000 stoves. They continually develop new concepts of wood stoves.
The progression of the Company is mainly down to the quality of its products ; this quality is the result of an innovative spirit and a permanent quest to improve technical performance, customer satisfaction and enhance aesthetic quality.
