Gerrit Rietveld The Impaler? What's Up With This de Stijlin' Playpen?


Alright, every time I think I've exhausted the Gerrit Rietveld kids' furniture, something else pops up. We already knew that Rietveld basically had his furnituremaking breakthrough by designing stuff for his own kid and his friends' kids. But somehow I missed this awesome, stake-filled, proto-de-Stijl playpen.

Anyone? I can't find even a hint of information about it outside this random Utrecht tourist agency YouTube video. How do you even say playpen in Dutch?
