    De Vuurbaak (the beacon) is a work of art on a roundabout in the village of Weteringbrug, near Amsterdam, Netherlands. Designed by Atelier René Knip, using his Concrete typeface on a revival of a beacon that in older times used to warn ships in the vicinity of Weteringbrug. Writer/poet K. Schippers chose a number of four letter words which were used in the concrete base and the metal fire basket on top of the lighthouse.
