In 1999, the foundation 'The bus stop of Rietveld' was established in Eindhoven. The goal was to maintain the bus stop designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1962. The Rietveld column has been made a meeting point for architects, designers and artists over the years.
The year 2012 was the Rietveld year of DJ Lady Aïda. In this year it was exactly fifty years ago that Gerrit Rietveld was commissioned to design a publicity medium for Eindhoven. 16 Artists, architects and designers from Eindhoven have now exhibited in the column. Among others: Piet Hein Eek, Theo Maassen and Rik van Iersel.
Aïda asked me to design the light column of the Rietveld bus shelter.
