People, ideas, the ability to move forward along a path of change and progress. These are the factors behind the history of Gaggenau: a unique company with 333 years of history that has always looked to the future. Along the way the firm has encountered Scuola Holden and decided to take part in a storytelling project on one of the symbolic objects of civilization and culture: the oven.

Hence the name of the project: Forges. Ovens in current events, design history and art. From cooking to fusion, alchemy to religion, Forges is an iconographic and bibliographic survey of the history of the oven.

For the first time, this story has been outlined in all its aspects, from antiquity to the present.

The book is now available in a limited edition of 333 numbered proofs. Publication and distribution are slated for 2017.
