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.

Sometimes, good design is about what is not there, and the Chicago series puts negative space to good use. The open design creates smart, elegant storage and makes the series an ideal addition to apartments or smaller living spaces. The Chicago 3 Box provides plenty of space to display books, art, photographs, media, or whatever needs a place to stay.

bookshelf

 from denver, CO– Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer

Great bookshelf. The only thing is that it is a little bit unstable. If a child pulled on the front it would come down. It should be attached to the wall. They should start sending attachments with it

Terrific Piece

 from Portland OR

I've owned this piece for over five years (bought at another store). It came assembled, so I can't speak to those issues. But as for the design, it is solid, lovely, elegant; both modern and timeless. It has a prominent place in our living room; is warm but modern; in a mix of other similar pieces it makes the living space in a 105-year old Portland craftsman seem lighter and more contemporary. Another reviewer is disappointed in the MDF, but there's nothing cheesy about this unit.

made of mdf

 from San Francisco, CA

the design of the item is great, but for this price, I was expecting it to be made of solid wood. instead, it's made of mdf. if I wanted mdf I would have gone to that big box home furnishings store instead and paid 1/4 the price. I don't recommend this product.

Manufacturer Details
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.

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.
