Sobya't Thawra - The revolution woodstove

On the 17th of October 2019, the country of Lebanon witnessed the emergence of an unprecedented political movement driven forward by widespread popular protests calling for sweeping economic and political changes.  Protestors have been living in tents in the capital’s downtown area and are not only enduring collisions with corrupt political parties but also the cold weather. Many NGOs and initiatives have supported the protestors through supply of food and other needs and we, Bits to Atoms, have contributed from our side by designing and providing a heating/ cooking stove which we’ve called “Sobya’t Thawra” (Which translates to: the revolution stove). The outdoor woodstove is locally manufactured by using laser cut black steel and the assembly only takes about an hour and is done on site by using only wedges, “Clavettes” (centuries old technic). In addition to its heating capabilities, the stove has an oven, two niches for coffee/tea kettles and functions in rainy weather. 
The stove is accessible to any person, irrelevantly of any politics, religion, age and race, which perfectly reflects the Lebanon we are aiming for and hoping to achieve through this revolution.
There are two versions of the Sobya’t Thawra, the first one was for outdoor use while the second one is designed for indoors following the request of protesters to have additional heating. The design of Sobya’t 2.3 is based on the principle of a downdraft rocket stove in which the hot air circulates and accumulates to provide maximum heat in a room. 

For anyone interested in assembling the woodstove himself, we have shared the CAD cutting file with everyone so you can download it and send it to any steel laser cutting center. Please follow this link to download the file:
