Helping out the next generation

his is a slightly off topic post, although it is about creativity.

One of my nephews, Antoine Philippe, expresses his creative side by designing furniture. He currently has two of his prototypes on a site named "L'Usine a Design" where you can vote for them. The site is in French and you have to register to vote...

The DONNA Chair - follow the link to vote.

The ELIPSE table - follow the link to vote.

The website of 1pulsif Design, the company that sells Antoine's creations.

Let's give a helping hand to the next creative generation!

Tried to vote but couldn't figure out how, it didn't seem very obvious. Maybe you can leave instructions for the non French visitor.
