2017 Lexus Design Award Shortlist

Kindling is a conceptual toy that empowers children to creatively explore fire’s potential. The glass protective shell that keeps kids safe from fire without blunting their innate curiosity, and allows them to see the flames within without getting dangerously close. Each hole, curve and alcove has no single designated purpose, allowing open-ended exploration. Kindling lets children tap into the curiosity we all have towards fire, and develops confidence and problem-solving skills.

We were inspired by Gever Tulley, author of Fifty Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do).

A project by L/T, a collaboration with Casey Harmon.
