Student Project // 2012 // Design & Manufacture
A simple, lightweight camping stove designed with manufacturability in mind.
Current backpacking stoves are difficult to assemble in outdoor conditions,
larger and more complex than necessary,
and hard to keep balanced on uneven terrain.
Three identical legs securely clip around the rim of the fuel canister, providing a simple, lightweight, and stable stand for outdoor cooking.
A bent hook on each leg securely grips the top lip of the can.
The tripodal design provides stability between the ground, stove, and pot.
The legs latch onto the base of the fuel can with a satisfying “click!”
All pieces are cut from a single sheet of aluminum, sanded, and bent for ease of manufacture.
This stove aims to give hikers a lightweight, easy-to-use solution while creating almost no material waste in its production.
