I started Proef as a restaurant/ design studio in 2004 in Rotterdam and expanded in 2006 to Amsterdam.

Currently the place in Rotterdam is sold and is now called ‘PICKNICK’ I helped the new owners transfer to a new concept and made the design for the logo and added some new features in the interior.

Proef in Amsterdam is sold to my former business partner Piet Hekker (owner of the Bakkerswinkels) The place remains to run the same concept (A restaurant) under his supervision; pure, organic, simple food served on large wooden boards to share.

I decided to sell the place in 2011 because it distracted me too much from my design work.
