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 8 Box provides plenty of space to display books, art, photographs, media, or whatever needs a place to stay.

Blu Dot Chicago 8 Box


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.
