They have advanced CNC skillz in Holland, and they like to show them off. Or as designer Dirk Ploos van Amstel puts it, "This work is about demystification. The most striking of this designs is that the most important mechanisms and constructions of the products are made visible. All products are made according to this white box-approach."
One of these products is Moep, a rocking chair/cradle combo sometimes called a "nanny rocker," made out of slot-together ply. When the kid outgrows the cradle, and you don't want to fill it with magazines and catalogues, it comes off, leaving a rocker with just a slim magazine pocket. No mystery there.
And the demystification continues in this photo, which shows the tensioner underneath that holds the whole thing together. Once the kid starts crawling, you'll want to keep him away from that pin, hmm?
