About the Designer

Blu Dot  

Blu Dot furniture (born in 1997) was founded by John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks. The firm began as a loose collaboration of three college friends trained in architecture and art, based on the premise that design should be affordable. The partners chose furniture as the subject of interest and opened a studio and operations in Minneapolis in 1996. Blu Dot has begun to realize their vision with a collection of over 40 furniture pieces that are both elegantly abstract and unambiguously functional. Blu Dot pieces are in the permanent collections of several museums, have been seen on the sets of well-known television shows such as Friends and ER, and have won numerous national and international awards. The furniture collection is distributed around the world.

About the Manufacturer

The goal of Blu Dot is to bring good design to as many people as possible, which means creating products that are useful, affordable, and desirable. To make that happen, their design process is founded on collaboration. Not just among themselves, as they play show-and-tell with concepts, but a total collaboration between pencil and paper, materials and machines, even packaging and assembly. Blu Dot's designers like to think that the form is almost inevitable, a by-product of the process. Their job is simply to help it emerge as beautifully and as efficiently as possible. brbr Blu Dot was formed by three college friends - John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, who shared a passion for art, architecture, and design. After they left college and began to furnish their first homes, they didn’t like the stuff they could afford and couldn’t afford the stuff they liked. They figured they were not alone and were naïve enough to try and do something about it. Blu Dot was born in 1997. Since then, the idea that good design is not just about beauty or form - it should also be about making everyone's lives just a little easier and a little more enjoyable.

not an expensive looking piece

 from malibu, ca

I bought this piece because of the design. I ordered graphite on oak. The design is great but the veneer looks like any discount store veneer, very low quality. The vertical supports were heavy (sturdy) but the dead gray finish did not impress. For close two thousand dollars I was expecting something of much higher quality. If I had a choice I would return it. Don't buy it unless you love the design.

Nice looking but is it sturdy

 from Arlington, VA– Verified Buyer

It looks better than I thought it would. Beautiful wood and the steel posts are nice. However, I havent put anything on it yet because Im really nervous about using it. I keep thinking its going to tip over because its easily shaken.. My apartment is very small and it could be disastrous for me. People tell me once I put stuff in it that it will sink into the carpet. If anyone knows or can assure me about the weight capacity, Id appreciate it. Also its the first piece of furniture I bought that I cant move myself. Its not that its heavy but even when two people are dragging it you have to be careful it doesnt tip to one side.

brilliant design well executed

 from Canada– Verified Buyer

The shelving is for a home office, with a Hermann Mille desk. We like the clean modern lines, and If find the combination of wood and steel very attractive, and highly functional.

As an ex-furniture mill owner, I was pleasantly impressed by the high quality cherry veneers and - if you're a wood worker you'll appreciate this - the perfect finishing. Nary a chip in the veneer in any of the 8 boxes which had many many places for chips to happen.

great looking shelving at a great price.
