The original Klassic stove fireplace was first developed in 1970 by the
renowned Danish industrial designer Bent Falk. The initial concept was based
on the antique stoves from Europe that had multiple functional compartments
such as raised fireboxes, convenient wood storage beneath the fire, and also
a baking and cooking oven above the firebox.
Bent Falk’s new fireplace design and technology revolutionized the
industry and it became the model for all contemporary stove designs
Wittus first brought these Klassic stoves to the United States in the late
seventies and today, these technically updated unique stoves are proudly
made in the USA under the guidance of Bent Falk by skilled, educated steel
fabricators using heavy gauge ¼" American steel and ingenuity for a
handcrafted quality product.
The heart of each stove is a modern EPA approved large firebox with a self
cleaning glass door that easily accommodates standard log sizes up to 24" in
The outer shells are then riveted together to form the outer shells. Exposed
rivets and clean lines are apparent throughout the design, and even the back
of the stove has details that allow the unit to be free standing and enjoyed
from all sides.
Each of the heavy double steel doors comes standard with heavy
stainless steel handles and inner back panels, which can be optionally painted
in exciting various colors (black, red, orange, yellow, green, and blue) to match a particular décor setting.
With the doors closed, watch the exciting flames though the specially made
star cut outs on the doors, or fold them away conveniently flat on each side
of the stove, leaving only the large view of the fire.
The upper compartment can easily become a convenient baking or roasting oven by
flipping the two louver handles at the back top to close the louver vents. The oven area comes with a thermometer and a natural
2" thick Brazilian soapstone baking liner for heat retention and consistent
Attention to detail is a must. The door hinges are made so that when the
doors are in the open mode, they fold flat around the side of the unit,
leaving the unique view of the back panels as part of the design. The
“stars” that have been incorporated into every unit allow a unique mystical
peek. Bold and robust is the essence of these unique contemporary
