De Nieuwe Stad, an innovative micro-city in Amersfoort did not want standalone hospitality but a meeting place for all users and visitors of the area. Together with a team of well-known Weltevree-designers like Floris Schoonderbeek and Dick van Hoff, but also with locals like ceramist Frans Ottink, the cafe-restaurant HOOG VUUR was developed.
Dining kitchen of De Nieuwe Stad
Three huge wood-burning stoves are central: to cook and to heat the area. All dishes are prepared in the ovens of the stoves, that have been specially designed for this place. The restaurant is equipped with Forestry tables where you can sit down facing the open kitchen. Tim Kröber, Restaurant Manager at Hoog Vuur: “Hoog Vuur is a warm and accessible place, where the experience of burning wood and cooking is central. The character of the old factory combined with purity and a new vibe creates a surprising effect.”

Products in this project
The Forestry Table is a dinner table made of Douglas fir wood originating from Dutch forests. The wood is assembled with steel bow-tie wood joints. The wood will eventually develop a natural grey patina when left untreated. It is available in a Raw and Refined version. The Forestry Tables are made from wood sourced from Dutch forests in cooperation with Staatsbosbeheer (a Dutch government organization for forestry and the management of nature reserves). The Forestry Table is available in different sizes, fitting 6, 8 or 12 people. To extend the life of your furniture, it is good to give it an oil treatment once a year.
