Restaurant Proef Rotterdam

In 2004 Onno Donkers made the interior concept for restaurant and eating design studio Proef of Marije Vogelzang and Piet Hekker. The demands were to create a multifunctional space: a breakfast and lunchroom, room to prepare on-site caterings, space for private parties and conferencing. First we stripped the whole space and after that we created a 14 meter long wooden piece of “furniture” harboring several functionalties such as a place to cook, a hood, a counter, tables, stairs, office space, toilets, storage and more. This wooden out-of-one piece is standing free from the walls to have maximum spatial experience and clarity.
