The people behind the up-and-coming Turtle/Turtle chair and toy love good design, and they want to bring more of it to kids' products. Inspired by the Eames' Elephant designed in the 40s, they've created a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to get their new piece to market.Since we love to see good kids' design succeed, we've featured other products from Kickstarter before, and we think this new idea has merit, too. The Turtle/Turtle has an inspired origin: created for a charity auction for the World Wildlife Fund, the designer got such great feedback he decided to produce more. The aesthetic is minimalist, and it serves as a toy, a chair, and a design object all in one.
