Visit BioLite at the DC International Design Festival

If you're in Washington DC February 21st - May 19th, be sure to check out the Washington DC International Festival. The BioLite CampStove and HomeStove will both be on display as part of the Next Wave Exhibition.

What makes an object useful, engaging and beautiful? What is it about a distinct design that conveys calm, wonder and excitement in the user and helps us recall a moment in time? Artisphere and Apartment Zero present the Washington, DC International Design Festival from Thursday, February 21 through Sunday, May 19, 2013.

The BioLite CampStove and HomeStove are featured in The Next Wave: Industrial Design Innovation in the 21st Century, a 4,000 square foot exhibition exploring innovation in product design from the last 13 years. Showcasing one-offs, prototypes and pieces in production, The Next Wave focuses on innovation from Spain, Italy, Belgium, the U.K., Scandinavia, the Netherlands and the United States among others. On view will be over 100 objects covering the areas of lighting, tabletop, furniture, textile, product, electronics, housewares, tools and interactive design.

The free public opening reception will be held on Thursday, February 21 from 7-10pm. The exhibition will be complemented by a series of free public programs (complete list follows) and a small retail shop.

Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's "Mad Money", interviews Jonathan Cedar, BioLite CEO, and John Levy, Chairman of BioLite, about the BioLite CampStove and HomeStove.

BioLite's Ethan Kay Speaks at AutoDesk University

Innovation Forum "Better World: How Smart Design Is Improving Our Planet"

Today, innovators are making more than a living—they are making a difference, channeling their passion for design to make a better world. Currently, one in 7 lives in a slum or refugee camp, and nearly half the world's population has no access to clean water or sanitation. Yet too often designers are desperately needed in the places where they can least be afforded. Meanwhile, the impact of dirty cook stoves, impoverished families, energy pollution and historical artifacts lost due to conflict are attracting the attention of motivated design professionals. In this session, Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity, will describe clever and pragmatic ways to raise living standards for communities worldwide. Ethan Kay of Biolite Stoves, will show how to take an entrepreneurial approach to solving health, energy, and social concerns. Eve Blossom of Lulan will describe how she trained impoverished designers on lucrative trends and then built a business that lifts them from poverty. Günter Waibel and the Smithsonian Institution will show how they applied reality capture technology to capture, archive, and share artifacts and specimens with researchers, students, and the public. Finally, Gia Schneider of Natel Energy will describe how environmentally safe hydroelectric systems can generate renewable power more broadly.


BioLite Hosts: A Call To The Outdoors

On October 17 2012, BioLite held its first ever event at our Brooklyn headquarters. A Call To The Outdoors was a special event co-sponsored by Mountainfilm featuring Dan Austin from 88Bikes. Friends, supporters, and fans of BioLite gathered to eat, drink, watch some short films, and view some of the latest gear from fellow outdoor names Osprey and Alite.

The highlight of the evening was Dan Austin's inspiring presentation about his work at 88Bikes and the unexpected power of joy.

We're looking forward to hosting future events with a wide variety of themes and speakers - stay tuned!
