detroit-based designer michael neville has created the ‘colonial turd’ rocker series as a material exploration of post-consumer cardboard pulp and natural dyes. the pieces are designed as functional play furniture for young children that are bight and colorful. the friendly-looking forms and heirloom quality products incorporate common recyclable materials. the sustainability focus of the series is further supported through the use of natural dyes and hardwoods indigenous to north america.
