Young designer Xiaoxi designed the X-Plus side table, which won a Red Dot award in 2011, but he had yet to find a manufacturer. He partnered with TheCreator.ME, a new global social-commerce platform that brings crowd-funded design products to market in the home decor and furniture arena. They’ll be presenting the X-Plus stool at SaloneSatellite in Milan.

You can also back Xiaoxi on TheCreator.ME and help him bring the award-winning X-PLUS to life by pre-ordering your piece from the limited 1st Edition now! There will only be 100 limited 1st edition pieces made that will include a collector’s book about the X-Plus and Xiaoxi, including a numbered certificate of authenticity. I’m pretty excited about this whole designer portfolio-meets-fundraising-meets-crowdsourcing-meets-modern design platform!
