About this project
Gobble by Form Maker, is a collection of fun eco-friendly, animal inspired homeware for children that is made from recycled paper fibers. Combined with non toxic ink and water based adhesives, our range of designs are extremely durable and also recyclable so Mother Nature can Gobble them back up when your kids outgrow them.
We designed Gobble aiming to use innovative materials to replace unsustainable and toxic components in today's furniture while teaching kids the habits of sustainable living through daily interaction and play. We hope that materials like ours will one day be as common as plastic and be normal for future generations.
Sadly, most modern furniture and toys are made with MDF that contains harmful toxins or non-biodegradable plastic. Gobble is the solution to these pressing problems.
Our chairs, pen holders, coasters and organizers are crafted from recycled paper fibers that emits nearly 6 times less CO2 per kilogram compared to plastic. We are also utilizing water-based adhesives with non-toxic ink to ensure safety for your children and reduce the impact on the environment as much as possible.
The signature Gobble pieces are lightweight, superior in strength, water resistant and recyclable. Better still, they don’t consist of any toxins that other mass produced furniture contain.
Gobble is giving our Kickstarter backers an opportunity to experience and have access to an alternative way of living by offering a range of different products made from the same awesome material.
To further bring sustainability to life, all backers will receive bi-weekly newsletters for the next 12 months with project updates and fun eco family activities to do.
By mixing innovative design with fun, children are excited to interact with Gobble products every day, familiarising them with new sustainable materials. We hope these eco alternatives will one day become the norm for future generations.
In 2014, one little comment on a photo on Instagram brought together the team behind Gobble - Kira Pan and Mandy Cai. We are two Australian designers that quickly bonded over our love for design. When our mutual friends started becoming mothers, it became evident that there is a significant lack of products for parents and children that are sustainable and designed beautifully. With that thought in mind, we spent the last 12 months creating Gobble - hoping to change the world.

Risks and challenges
Gobble will be made using digital fabrication for flexibility and adaptability, so that we are bringing you the best of what technology has to offer.
We will work with high quality VOC free ink, and eco-friendly LED UV curing technology to save energy consumption while retain the recyclability of the material. Followed by digital cutting to bring Gobble to life one piece at a time. All designs will be assembled and finished by hand to ensure that we are delivering a premium product.
The Form Maker team has been designing and producing eco-friendly homeware on a made to order basis for over a year, this experience has helped us in understanding the production and delivery process, and foresee the challenges that lies ahead.
The estimated delivery dates shown reflect a conservative production timeline to ensure we can meet and fulfil all of our Kickstarter orders at the highest of quality. Most importantly, we will be providing regular updates for backers throughout the whole process, so you will always know where we are up to.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
