In order to further broaden the scope of ceramics, Dick van Hoff had already been asked to ponder a reshape of the traditional tile stove. As a functional designer, Van Hoff was the right man for the job: well known from previous cooperation projects, he had also proved to master the intricacies of artistically and technically designing a properly working wood burning stove. The ‘tile stove project’ was set up together with ‘Weltevree’, in recognition of their specific knowledge and shared appreciation of quality in use.
