What's Wrong With This Piet Hein Eek Picture?

piet_hein_eek_mystery_cars.jpg

If you ignore my sloppychoppy highlighting, nothing. But HOLY CRAP, DWELL MAGAZINE! If you're gonna have a fine interview with Piet Hein Eek, and then you add a 27 [!] slide slideshow, DON'T have the caption on the 27th slide be just, "Eek and a partner standing in front of a pod they built on their workshop site with scrap metal"!!

A pod they build out of scrap metal?? That's an entire article right there!

Meanwhile, you act like what looks like the prototype of Eek's awesome aluminum Skelter pedal car isn't even there!

And then you have that wooden, Schaukelwagen-slash-oil drum barbecue-shaped car on the left that you don't mention either??!

Sorry, it's the end of the week, and I had a big pile of exclamation points left over. Use'em or lose'em, you know.

Slide 27/27 for An Interview with Piet Hein Eek [dwell.com]
Oh, here's the pod, called "treehouse." [pietheineek.nl]
And I see the go-kart is now a product, for sale for EUR3,895.
No barrel-shaped car, yet, but the barbecue looks like nothing so much as a EUR1,146 powder-coated steel changing table
